    This is the nicest, most personable surgeon I've ever met. He took care of both of my hands and I am seeing him soon for my shoulder. Prior to my appointment, but after reviewing my MRI and X-ray results, he took the time to write me a quick letter. Who does that?? I do not mind waiting to see him during my scheduled appointment time; I know he'll be spending as much time as I need with me too!
