      "I learned more through your CME 89 day program than any other CME that I have done during my 25 years of practice. I have Orthobullets on my iPhone to refer to in my practice and it is an incredible help in taking good care of patients." Surgeon - USA, 5/25/15      
      "Orthobullets is singularly one of the best educational experiences available today. The flash card principle you employ is effective. In addition to relearning aspects of orthopedics long forgotten as a subspecialist, I actually enjoyed the process. I can't imagine recertifying without this process.  Way better than anything the AAOS publishes. I know, I bought them all.  Way better than the JBJS/Miller product. I know, I bought that too." Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/14/14      
      "This is a tremendous resource."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 12/14/13
      "UNBELIEVABLE. The amount of coverage in a concise, learnable format was right on."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 10/31/13
      "Doing the 60 Day Sports deal. What a God send. ... It is phenomenal."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 10/25/13
      "I feel so effin smart...This old dog passed his (MOC) boards thanks to you!"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 9/12/13
      "I think your platform is game changing"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 10/4/13
      "A great academic experience"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 10/4/13
      "I purchased Sports MOC course. It’s AWESOME. This is best resource I have found."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 9/2/13
      "Thank you so much. I passed and felt well prepared for the Computor test, of which style I was not familiar. This was the only course I took combined with reading review. Again, thanks."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 7/24/13
      "Thank you for your hard work & dedication on a terrific learning tool. My 2nd recert is safely behind. I only used bullets, & actually enjoyed the catch-up, no none sense, instantly accessible approach you folks provided. I would highly recommend this to anyone as a focused guide or valuable supplement. I do nothing but F&A, & had no problems with the general exam."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 7/12/13
I used orthobullets exclusively for my ABOS recertification and passed without difficulties. I took the general recertification exam and am a primarily practicing pediatric orthopaedic surgeon. Orthobullets was a great resource. Excellent explanations and refresher on all subjects I don't routinely read about. 
I will recommend this site to all coming up on recertification

      "I used Orthobullets almost exclusively to study for the Board Recertification. I was waiting to evaluate the program until I confirmed that I passed. After receving my results last week, I believe that Orthobullets did an outstanding job preparing me for the recertification with the 60 day program (in fact, I was probably overprepared). I will certainly use it again for my next recertification 10 years from now. Thank you, Orthobullets team."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 6/29/13
      "Your site is Amazing!!!!  Studying for recertification and the site is a rock star!"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/21/13
      "I'm going to sound like an old fart, but here goes. Back when I was in residency, there were NO resources like this. OKU was in its infancy and we used old OITE exams (with answers researched ourselves) for studying. Residency had little organization other than rotating through defined subject areas. Granted, the topics were less rigorous simply because there were few classification schemes and both biochemistry and genetics were yet to be fully elucidated. Treatments were biased based on personal and institutional clout, and regional variation was more entrenched. This has been over a mere twenty years! You guys at Orthobullets have done a stellar job in organizing the subject matter and updating the material. I suspect one gets more out of it each time through, and I found explanations and greater clarity for things I've taken as a blind memorization these many years. If you're accomplishing this ON TOP of a regular surgical caseload, my hat is off to you! Please keep up the good work and please be around the next time I recertify!"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/18/13
       "This is a great website. It has been instrumental in preparing for recertification. You and the whole Orthobullets team are doing a great service for our profession!"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/11/13
      "Best review I had this year."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/11/13
ssss         ddddd  
      "I am scheduled to take my re-cert exam tomorrow.  Thanks for helping me figure out this ballgame."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 4/11/13

"Much better than a review course!!"
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 3/19/13
      "It has been invaluable as I trudge through the process of recertification."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 3/19/13
      "Love the format."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 2/27/13

      "It took my studyling from 0 to 60."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 2/23/13

       "I recently passed the recertification exam in orthopaedics administered by the ABOS. My studying was based on OrthoBullets. ... Just do what I did...... Use Orthobullets."
Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 6/23/12
      "It is the best thing out there, at least on the web."  Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 2/24/13
      "I have really enjoyed Orthobullets and am so thankful for access to this wonderful resource.  You guys have really built a great asset for the orthopaedic community.  Now if we could get rid of the re-cert exam and make the MOC process a truly educational process and not a hoop to jump through, than we could all really benefit from experiencing programs like yours." - Orthopaedic Surgeon - USA, 2/10/13      
      "I used Orthobullets as my main preparation for my recertification exam. Practicing computer question after computer question was perfect in getting ready for a computer exam. The actual exam actually seemed a bit easier than the Orthobullets tests. Thank you, Orthobullets, for helping me to pass!"  - Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 7/9/12      

"It is fantastic and keeping me on track." - Orthopaedic Surgeon, USA, 2/19/13
