Patient Comments (1)
Phoenix, AZ |
He was the third surgeon I met with regarding a foot problem (he didn't know this) and was the only one of the three who suggested alternative ways of trying to rehab my foot and considered surgery the final approach. The other two immediately went to surgery. After four months of rehab my foot is so much better that I don't consider it a problem. I am so grateful I ended up with Dr. Gesink!
