Great doctor. I feel he'd the best in his field. He explained my rotator cuff problem thoroughly,gave me my options. Then he repaired the massive tear I had. I have full confidence in his work. I'm still in the middle of healing process. He also found my painful knee issue that 4 other doctors missed. Turns out my hip is causing my knee to give out. He was the only one to check that possibility. I have a severely deteriorated hip that needs replacement. Thanks for checking me out thoroughly doc

He took time to explain the procedure, a torn rotator cuff, and answered any questions I had. The support staff was excellent and took time to answer my many concerns. I wouldn't hesitate to go to them again.
