Very confident but rightly so . . . knows his stuff, straightforward plus he and his staff take the time to answer questions and concerns. Carpel Tunnel surgery done on Monday . . .was almost back to normal on Wednesday with almost immediate relief from years of tightness in my hand. Highly recommend him!
