Patient Comments (1)
in Shoreline, WA |
If not for Dr Vyhmeister I would have a prosthesis instead of my left hand. He put me through a lot of pain and ten days in the hospital, but if he hadn't I would have lost my left hand at the least and possibly my life. Despite what other doctors told me, I still have my left hand and over eighty percent of the use of it. I thank God all the time for leading me to such a talented surgeon and a man who knows where that gift comes from.
