What Our Patients say

“I travelled several hundred miles to see Dr. DeGroote for my shoulder…. He explained my problem and treatment options clearly. I would see him again in a heart beat.”Blair Stewart, NHL Alumni (Washington Capitals, Detroit Red Wings, Quebec Nordiques)

“My husband, Tony and I travelled over 1100 miles … so that he could have double knee implants by Dr. DeGroote. We searched in Canada… but there was no one with the experience and reputation as Dr. DeGroote. Tony had both knees operated on… and Dr. DeGroote has changed Tony’s life.” - Vicky Vanden Hoeck
