Patient Comments (7)

I was having constant pain in my hand and wrist. Dr Reed has been treating me for 3 months and I now have most of my day pain free. I have had no surgery at this time and it looks like I will not need to go that route.

Dr. Reed is a excellent surgeon, he is super friendly and make sure you thoroughly understand what’s going on with your medical conditions. I had surgery on my rotator cuff and he did a wonderful job with very minimal scaring. I recommend him all the time to people I know.
