I had surgery at the reccommendation of his associate. I couldn't be happier. Dr. Was upfront, patient and informative He let me know of risks and took my word on follow up care to minimize a potentially highly invasive procedure.

Went to see him for a consult on my thumb arthritis. He was very honest and patient. Took the time needed to answer my questions. It turned out that he could not treat my particular condition and he let me know that. I appreciate his candidness.
