This doctor is not for the patients best interests. About several years ago I knew a 70yrs. Old man who used orthopedic doctor out of that clinic. This man lived alone. He had total hip replacement. He was slow to heal. He was put in nursing home for 21days at a cost of 3,500.he received no reha. For his hip.
