Dr Osborn is so nice. It comes through that he cares about what’s bothering his patients. I was very at ease with him.

Review for Dr. Osborn

Dr Hightower was very knowledgeable and personable. I had trigger release surgery on my left thumb. He kept me informed all through the process and even during surgery. He even prayed with me before surgery! My thumb is recovering well after 6 weeks! I would recommend him to others.
