    Polly Smith judges many dog shows including the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club show. Unfortunately severe knee arthritis began to limit her ability travel and judge.

  • Karen McCormick

    Dr. Vic Goradia

    “At first, I went to an orthopedic practice close to home. I felt more like a number than a patient.

    A close friend recommended I see Dr.Goradia for a second opinion. The great staff and personalized treatment I received at G2 made the drive from Brandermill to Chester worth it.

    After having knee surgery with Dr.Goradia, I am back on my exercise bike.”

Rebecca Soon, Cheerleader

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I tore my left ACL in 2009 and was diagnosed by Dr. Goradia during a school physical. I was worried I would be out from cheerleading for years but was back just 4 months after surgery. When I tore my other ACL a few years later, I returned to Dr. G and had another great result.”

Elizabeth Hopkins, Student Athlete

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I dislocated my knee cap during school track. The pain I experienced was so bad.

I decided to go to Dr. Goradia since he had treated my cousin. After my surgery, I worked very hard in physical therapy so that I would be ready for fall sports. The head therapist, Mike Hathaway, worked with me and showed me exercises that I could do at home as well. Everybody  has been really great and I’m excited to get back to playing sports this year.”

Robert Tarnai, Group Leader at Bioanalytical Lab

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I was having pain and swelling in my left knee that kept me from playing soccer. I drove from the West End of Richmond to Chester to see Dr. Goradia because it was important for me to see the best. His staff was extremely courteous and professional and worked with me to schedule convenient appointments.

Dr. Goradia’s diagnosis was fast and accurate. He performed a knee arthroscopy to treat my torn meniscus and quickly returned me to my active lifestyle without pain. The few extra minutes of driving to see Dr. Goradia was well worth it.”

Graziella Wilson, Epidemiologist with the VA Department of Health Chester

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I am very active in my day to day life and I twisted me knee in 2005 playing basketball with family and friends. Dr. Goradia quickly diagnosed a torn meniscus in my right knee. Within weeks of arthroscopic surgery, I was back to walking and exercising pain free. When my shoulder recently started bothering me I knew that I could depend on Dr. Goradia to help get me back to my activities.”

Ashley Wells, Vollyball Player

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I have had trouble with my knees for years and got to the point of constant pain. My parents took me to other surgeons but they were skeptical about being able to fix my knee.

After spending hours online researching numerous physicians throughout the area, Dr. Goradia’s experience really stood out. I’m happy I took the time to choose the best place for my care. After surgery and rehab I’m now able to play high school volleyball.”

Donnie Lee, Football Player

Dr. Vic Goradia

“My dear friend just suffered an extremely painful knee injury tonight as her volleyball game. She was rushed to the hospital where they told her that they are about 99% sure she tore her ACL.

After my experience with it and my experiences with you, I immediately told her that she should take a visit to your office Saturday morning since you offer the free clinic for athletes. I’m really hoping you can treat her and get her back on her feet as quickly as you did with me, if not faster. I told her that I highly recommended you and that you were a guaranteed result just from my experience.”

Buddy Jones

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I had severe pain in my shoulder and couldn’t sleep at night, lift or play golf. After trying injections and therapy first, Dr. Goradia ordered an MRI and saw the tear.

Chris Hargrave, Professional Outdoorsman

Dr. Vic Goradia

“Everyone had written me off when I tore my rotator cuff, even my sponsors, I have just two words for them, I’m back! Thank you, Dr. Goradia.”

David Carpenter, Machinist at Honeywell

Dr. Vic Goradia

“My primary care physician referred me to Dr. Goradia to discuss my treatment options.

Due to my long history of dislocations and shoulder instability, we determined that physical therapy was no longer an option for me.

I then decided to have a right shoulder arthroscopy with a capsular repair. Thanks to Dr. Goradia and the  physical therapy team, my shoulder feels better than it has in 15 years.”

Ricky Bakke, U.S. Army

Dr. Goradia and his staff are incredible. I would recommend them to anyone who has pain!”

Dee Short, Owner of Short’s Lawn Care

Dr. Vic Goradia

“My business depends on my physical health. I could not raise my right arm or keep up with the physical demands of my landscaping business.

Richard Carvel

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I tore my rotator cuff and was being treated by another physician. I was not happy .

I heard about Dr. Goradia and researched him on the internet. I was able to get right in for an appointment.

He explained everything during my first appointment. After arthroscopic surgery to repair my rotator cuff I was on the road to recovery.

Now I can enjoy boating and riding my motorcycle. I would highly recommend Dr. Goradia.”

Aaron Hall, Hanover H.S. Athlete

Dr. Vic Goradia

“I have had problems with my knees since I was 8 years old and saw several orthopedic surgeons. When I got hurt at the end of a football season a family member recommended I see Dr. Goradia.

My parents and I were worried that I might not be able to play sports again. Dr. Goradia took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions about surgery and the recovery process.

After arthroscopic reconstruction and repair of both meniscus tears, I was back to playing football 7 months later. Two years later I’m stronger than ever and coaches tell me I may be able to get a college scholarship.”

John Ware, Owner & Lead Trainer at Boost Fitness

Dr. Vic Goradia

“Physical fitness has been my profession for 24 years. My business and clients depend on my ability to demonstrate physically challenging exercises.

I had put off having surgery for years because I was concerned about the recovery time and how it would impact my business but with the limitations of my injury beginning to impact my livelihood, I finally reached a point where I had to do something.

I specifically chose Dr. Goradia based on his experience and credentials in sports medicine. I had surgery on a Friday and returned to work the following Monday. As for my procedure, Dr. Goradia ‘rocked it’ and I would gladly recommend him to any of my clients.”

Chris Walker, Police Officer
