Review for Dr. Titone

He takes time with his patients and knows how to identify the issues by examining.I have been through multiple surgeries with this arm due to accident and he took up more time with me in my 1st visit than the surgeon who did multiple surgeries and he makes me feel comfortable about the surgery ??
