    Patient Comments (1)
    in Denver, CO |
    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 was someone in my corner looking out for my best interests. Plus, he's just a very nice guy, witty and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
