Honeoye Falls |
Exceptional surgeon. I had a very difficult finger fracture and he put it back together with a unique and innovative technique. It healed exactly as he said it would. Extremely direct and honest. He is the kind of professional that you instantly trust because he is so knowledgeable and confident. Very easy to talk to.
