I am so glad my Orthopedic surgeon referred me to Dr. Means! He is not a Doctor who wants to rush a patient to the operating room unless it is absolutely necessary. He will look at the problem, explain the nature of the injury and then discuss the options. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Besides, Union Memorial is world renowned for their Hand Center!
