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.
