This doctor is very sharp. If you haven't tried him you are missing out (especially if you've had bad experiences with other average orthopedics.) He takes the time to explains things in detail and, is a great listener. I had a partial meniscectomy on both knee that went so well I 'walked' out of post op in 2 hours. His assistant is also very good with following thru on all the pre-op scheduling & paper work.
