Patient Comments (1)
New York, NY |
Definitlelty I would NOT recommend this doctor. A simple part of his procedure in repairing a simple fracture of a hip should not end with that leg being 1 inch longer than the good leg. Let me explain, this will destroy my spine and hips. Now I walk with a limp and am in pain all the time when I walk. I can not run to save my life. The best way to describe my new life is I will always feel like I am standing along and walking along a hill. Very uncomfortable. I wouldn't let him fix my dog.
