you wait 2-3 hours to see him. You are lucky if he spends more than 10-15 minutes with you. His staff doesn't return phone calls. I have severe knee pain. He told me it was all in my head and suggested seeing a psychiatrist. He sure kept my money though. He's among the rich and famous. He's lost compassion for patients. He's too busy collecting money from poor folks to pay for his fortunes. "O" in my book. Would not recommend him to see an animal!!!

VERY good surgeon. Have waited up to 2 and 1/2 hours to see him. Exceedingly difficult to get responses from him as he is very busy. Impossible to get a timely appointment when need is urgent.

Very competent, takes time to answer questions, explains exactly what will take place during joint replacement surgery and shows you exactly what the new joint looks like. He explains what to expect after surgery and what you must do before and after surgery. He is precise and delivers all of the information with a smile and a friendly manner. My hip replacement was 4 weeks ago and I'm ahead of schedule. Been driving for 1 week and am walking without any assistance. Joint Acadamey is fabulous.
