No reason not to recommend, from what I learned and read and heard from others, he is one of the best, if not the best. He was my Dr's Dr. so, if he was good enough for him, he must have been good enough for me. The hip replacement went better that I expected, as far as my lack of pain and recovery, maybe it was me, and I don't doubt it. To ME, he was not as accessible for office visits as I would like. There were several appointments that I spoke or saw his Physician Assistant, and not him.
