He is good, friendly and does what he says. Both knee replaced 10 months ago, and am getting along pretty good. With some numbness due to a back problem I really have done very well with both knees. My progress I would say is slower because of the numbness from a back problem..but knees work fine and are getting better all the time.

Waited an HOUR for him to grace us with his presence even though we were the SECOND appointment of the day. No apology, no excuse, just irritation as if we were putting a wrinkle in his impotant busy day. Felt embarrassed asking for pain medication for multiple fractures and torn ligaments. Wouldn't recommend if you want someone with warmth or any sympathy.

Arrived at his office this morning with my paperwork already filled out for my 8AM appointment. Gave it & the requested CD of my referring doctor's images to the staff at 8:08 AM. At 8:35 AM I began asking where the doctor was & reminding them AGAIN that I had another appointment at 9:30. I was told he was reviewing my images. At 9:02 AM I was handed back my disc cracked nearly in half & told it couldn't be viewed. Sure, now they wanted to take their own images! Where was my doctor for 62 mins?
