Message from Phoenix Team:

This is one of the doctors that we work with as listed in the Doctors We Serve page. It's a labor of love and it's something we decided to do to add value to the lives of our patients. It's not exhaustive, and as we grow and serve more and more doctors, we will also keep adding to the list of doctors we work with.

If you have an injury but don't know who to choose, connect with us via email or WhatsApp, and once we know more about the nature of your injury, then we can better advise you based on your injury and the doctor who specializes in that particular injury/location (eg if you have a shoulder injury, we will recommend you to a shoulder specialist etc)

Click on each link to read more about each of them, and if you make an appointment to see them as a result of this page or Phoenix, do let them know we sent you ya!
