I can't say enough good things about Dr. Iiams, his staff, and their new facility. First, Dr. Iiams has always been very good about listening to my concerns before evaluating me and then clearly explaining to me his assessment. He then thoroughly lays out what needs to be done (or not done if "rest" is the key!). He doesn't waste time but he also doesn't jump to conclusions. Second, his staff is sharp, informative and respectful. And, third, their new facility is state of the art - love it!

Dr. Iiams took a really traumatic elbow break and put it back together perfectly. He said it was one of the toughest surgeries he has performed, but I'm glad he did it. My elbow is nearly back to 100 percent within six weeks. Really happy with his surgery.

Office wait times are ridiculous, One hour minimum. Last app. I had was for 830 in the morning with the thought being how far behind can you get that early? Answer I was seen @ 935. When he does see you he seems rushed and in a hurry because he knows he is running behind. Go figure. I will not be going back.
