I have been a patient of his for 40 years and think he is just about the best ortho doctor in York.

Seems to give a cursory look and thought at best to everything he reviews for you. Very disengaged and did not seem very interested in my questions and concerns. Considering he referring me to get surgery, I found that to be troubling. I believe it's time for him to retire.

He totally ignores any patient or family input regrding any aspect of care. Talking to him is like talking to a brick wall.
