Buffalo, NY |
Great surgeon, great bedside, knowledgeable and experienced.
Buffalo, NY |
He is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Buffalo, NY |
Knew what was wrong within one minute.
in Lancaster, NY |
I feel like he only sort of listened to me and my complaints about my knee. I felt a little like he dismissed me after hearing I have a history of back problems. I was about to beg for an MRI as I felt like the XRay wasn't enough...but thankfully he reluctantly ordered one. Now I have to wait a week to get the MRI results, which is a bit much if you ask me. Hopefully I'll get an answer soon as to why I'm in so much pain...
