“While this recognition is a wonderful individual honor, the accolades should be shared with the tremendous team around me who work tirelessly to provide the highest level of care. The service, empathy, and care my staff provides to each and every one of our patients is truly what makes the Crystal Clinic experience second to none,” said Dr. Scully, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, who is fellowship trained in adult reconstruction orthopaedics. 

His colleague, Dr. Myer, who specializes in sports medicine and total joint replacement, added, “My father, who was also an orthopaedic surgeon,  taught me to treat patients like family. I love my job and enjoy taking care of patients. To be recognized by my peers is truly humbling.”
