Something is wrong. We saw him years ago and he was wonderful. This time was awful. He bullied and threatened my daughter after missing a torn ACL.

I think he did a very good job on my daughter's scoliosis surgery. He was very nice to me at all the visits PRIOR to her surgery (I was a huge fan singing his praises to everyone!) but at the follow up to remove sutures, he was extremely rude to me! He was harsh, short, & spoke. very. slowly....Read More

Had first consult today for our 4 year old. Doc was patient and kind. Talked to our child as well as to both parents. Made a recommendation for surgery, but had not pressure to schedule right away. We only waited in waiting room for about 10 minutes.
