“Dr. Peljovich greatly improved our son’s quality of life through bicep lengthening surgery. Our son has CP and talks using a computer. Prior to surgery, he was getting tight, decreasing his ability to talk. After surgery, our son is back to his talkative self! In addition, our son usually gets complications after surgeries—there were no complications with Dr. Pelvovich. Dr. Peljovich not only did an excellent job, but his bedside manner is unparalleled. He treated our son with respect and kindness. We would definitely recommend him to any person with CP who is losing function due to spasticity.”

“I broke my wrist in a bad way. Dr. Costas repaired my wrist. Dr. Costas, his staff, and occupational therapists helped me to heal and build up my wrist to be able to feel normal again. I then had a slap tear, bone spurs in the shoulder. Dr. Costas repaired my shoulder. Again Dr. Costas, his staff, and occupational therapists helped me to heal and regain strength to feel normal again. I am very grateful to have been able to have Dr. Costas perform both of my surgeries, he is a great surgeon and his staff was so very helpful throughout all of my downtime. I will always recommend Dr. Costas and will return if ever necessary in the future. Thank you Dr. Costas and staff!!!”

“Cheerful, speedily provided thorough expert care which made it a pleasure to keep appointments. My broken wrist is all cured, thanks to perfect care, ordered therapy, and follow-up. Dr. Lourie's own handwritten notes sent afterwards were cherry on top of it all. Warm regards to all of you.”

“It really was an honor to have Dr. Lourie in our family, he really changed my daughter's life. When my daughter was born she missed a bone (the radial) and had four fingers in each hand; and we fly from Guatemala to Atlanta with a baby of 40 days old, to see Dr. Lourie and he gave us such a trust that we decided to stay with him for 16 years through which my child had 13 surgeries but now she is able to do everything by herself, and all these years were great, they made her feel super special all the time, so much so that now that she leaves high school she wants to study in ATL. Thanks so much, Gary M, Lourie M.D.”
