My daughter broke her thumb. He was very good with her and with getting her back to pitching softball again.

The doctor is not the problem. It is the lack of care, concern and follow through of the support staff. Orders for imaging and blood work never get called in. They forget to tell you of other needed labs until you arrive for an appointment, I'm not sure if this is so they can bill for another visit. They never call to confirm anything because they never complete anything. Unless you are willing to do all the legwork and make calls 3-4 times a day find another practice.
