    Patient Comments (3)
    in Houston, TX |
    He takes time to clearly explain treatment options and when treating you, he also takes time to be sure you are comfortable. He has a great personality. He did my rotator cuff surgery, and corporal tunnel surgery on my wife. He has a very friendly staff assisting him equally committed to a good experience. He is asst. prof. at UT Health downtown and enjoys staying in that mode. Wish I had an invitation to sit in his class even though it would be over my head!
