Best doctor I've ever gone to. I moved back to the Valley from Texas last year and he saved my leg after my leg bypass clotted and I couldn't walk.

He was recommended by my primary doctor after I was unhappy with another surgeon who wasn't helping me. He is very professional and solved my problem right away.
