Patient Comments (2)
Boise, ID |
Dr. Hirose maybe a great surgeon, but as a doctor you are only as good as your staff. Was referred from the ER with a shattered tibia, the staff has been HORRIBLE. There is NO communication between staff and Dr. from the front desk not checking me in then "told" me I never checked in. To being charged for post op appts. Had an allergic reaction to pain meds then treaded like a druggie for calling the day after and then staff refused to see me. Then nurse said I would just have to deal "sorry"

He is one of the kindest and most compassionate Drs. I've ever experienced. He is very wise and conveys everything so that is easily understood.
