Patient Comments (1)

Older, wiser, kinder. He really took the time to properly explain the implications of my injury (a badly broken hand) and offered lots of good advice to help promote a full recovery. He didn't sugar-coat the potential downsides of having a broken bone, but I left his office definitely feeling there...more
