He took all the time I needed to ask questions and understand what he was telling me about my knee. Gave me all my options and allowed me to decide what was best for me.

I had bad broken ankle 3 years ago and needed open reduction surgery to place plate and screws to stabilize ankle. He waited almost 3 weeks to do the surgery. Then after the surgery, staples were taken out of my incision too soon, and started bleeding badly from incision. I would never wait...more
