Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Hirose is a very good orthopedic specialist. He imparts his knowledge in terms that are easy to understand. He presents options and emphasizes the fact that said options are up to the patient...not the Doctor. I would unconditionally recommend him for any orthopedic problem!
