Amazing doctor, would recommend to all of my family or friends.
in Kew Gardens, NY |
He is amazing! He's kind, understanding and has a great bedside manor. He reconstructed my elbow after a terrible fall and week in the hospital. He went above and beyond to help me get the best possible care and helped with insurance issues too. He spends time with you and answers all your questions without rushing you. His assistant and his staff are amazing, warm and friendly as well. It's rare to find doctors like him. I have a long recovery ahead and I couldn't be in better hands. Thank you!
