He makes decisions without consulting with the patient.

I agree with the other Comment about the Dr. Being VERY narrow minded. I personally think he's a bully, he lacks empathy and does not want to hear your questions. He actually yelled at me with my child present in the room which was completely uncalled for. He also mentioned that at least and I quote 1 out of every 50 patients he sees ends up with a blood clot. This doctor does not care if you are in pain or worried etc.. As I said he lacks Empathy, Horrible bedside Manner. Don't see this Doc.

Highly recommended, great reputation as a surgeon. Seems very narrowly focused on his role in the process and gives very little information about your options, care, rehab, or recovery. Everything seems to be on a need-to-know basis, which is unfortunate when you don't know what questions to ask. His PA talks extremely fast and his nurse is a little spacey, and all three gave me different answers to the same questions, so in general it's hard to communicate with his team.
