Patient Comments (3)

He was clear and confident. Spoke with respect and compassion. Undoubtedly a very skilled surgeon. In this world where there are less and less reimbursements for medical care, he didn't take short cuts and did an excellent arthroscopic repair on my knee.

He is a skilled surgeon. He was clear about the options and was very diligent. In the new changing field in medicine where payments are being slashed he took no short cuts and did an excellent job on my knee.
