What our patients are saying

“My go to place for any knee, shoulder or sports injury. You can’t beat their standard of care."
"When I had to have knee surgery Dr. Snyder and his whole staff were awesome. It was great not having to be sent to different places for the MRI, therapy before surgery, surgery, and then the therapy after - it was all in their facility. I highly recommend Dr. Snyder and his staff."
"I can't express enough gratitude for the excellent medical and nursing care I received at AOI. Dr. Snyder performed surgery to both my shoulders with excellent post-op results. I am pain free and completely healed thanks to the great surgery & post-op therapy I received at AOI."
