Patient Comments (7)

After a botched knee replacement, and only to be told to give it 6 more months, in pain...he stopped returning my phone calls. Found another physician that found a problem immediately and replaced the knee where the cement let go. Would NOT recommend!

The worst Dr. I have seen. He was 2 hours late for my appointment, only asked me 2 questions and didn't listen to the answers. He jumped to surgery for carpal tunnel before knowing anything about my symptoms or previous treatment. Told me he was running too late to answer questions about surgery....more
