Bilateral Hip surgery 7-22-15. 3 weeks and back to normal living without restrictions. None better
Very knowledgeable but incredibly pompou . His office is horrible. They are disorganized and do not follow through. Even with Matthy's skill I would not recommend trying to work with his office...save yourself the stress and headache.
