Dr Schutte takes his time explaining how procedure is done. What to expect. How long recovery will take. In general answers all of my questions in ways to understand fully.

Dr Schutte explained the procedure in simple easy to understand terms and suggested exercises pre-op to make recovery easier. The daily email check-in is a major plus to update Dr Schutte on my daily status and things to watch for in recovery.
