Our Patients

Dear Dr Komar, I wanted to express my heartfelt appreciation for your help in achieving one of my lifetime goals, completing an Ironman Triathlon.  Without your help, I would not have been able to even participate in the event. Late last year, I began training for a “bucket-list” physical challenge that I had long dreamed of completing, a 140.6 mile Ironman Triathlon.  About 3 months into that training, I developed tendonitis in my right hip and physical therapy simply wasn’t relieving the pain.  We met after I learnt about PRP. Admittedly I was skeptical. You took the time to provide a detailed explanation of my tendonitis and how PRP works and showed enormous patience in outlining the recovery process. The results were even better than I had hoped. A fairly painless procedure, two weeks of recovery time, and I was back to running, biking, and swimming, with no pain. At this point, I consider you and your staff miracle workers! I know that medical outcomes can be measured in many different ways. My measurement was simple – 140.6 mile Ironman Louisville completed in 14:45 (time) without the hip pain that had so impacted my daily life. Priceless! Dr Komar, I am eternally grateful for what you did in helping me achieve my dream. Thank You! — Kelli M
