Discussed my case in front of another patient with another doctor for fifteen minutes while he was supposed to be with her. Sent me for two tests that he had no clue what the results said. Could not remember which leg was bad. Two hour wait past apointment time. Only seems interested in cutting. I would not recomend him to any one!
Surgery was scheduled for 1 p.m. my surgery was done at 7:30 that night what I was told would be done wasn't. My knee as bad today as it was when I first visit his office.
