You'll show up on time for your 30 min appointment- she will show up 40 minutes late and expect it to only be 15 minutes long.

Review for Dr. James

Dr. Smith did a total shoulder replacement on both of my shoulders. They are like brand new and have NO MORE PAIN! Dr. Smith listened to me and made me a part of the surgery plan.

Review for Dr. Smith

He took the time to show us he cared. His bedside manner is probably the best we have ever experienced. Very knowledgeable, down to earth and realistic when it came to dealing with symptoms and diagnoses. Thank you!!

Review for Dr. Faragher

Dr Gee is a fantastic surgeon and I am recovering weeks ahead of schedule after having 6 anchors put in to reattach ny labrum. I couldn't recommend him more. He's very relaxed and it's clear he cares about his patients.

Review for Dr. Gee

Dr. Bransford and his team is highly skilled, intelligent and extremely patient with the families and the patients! Performed spinal fusion surgery with nothing but amazing results! Were specifically recommended to him as being the best spinal surgeon on the West Coast and I highly agree! Nothing...
