Patient Comments (1)

Awful doctor. Self centered, huge ego and only cares if he can get surgery out of you. Anything, beyond the surgery he could care less. My knee is much worse off after, a fairly simple ortho scope and has zero suggestion such as rehab or exercise to make things better. Please think twice before...more
