Patient Comments (2)
Anchorage, AK |
Amazing bedside manner. He is very informative, asks multiple times if you have questions or concerns, and thoroughly explains your options. He is kind, caring, and his staff are exceptionally attentive and well trained. I would whole heartedly refer my family and friends to him for any hand, wrist, or shoulder injuries.
Spring, TX |
He was nice enough but doesn't give any instructions on your care or after care. His nurse is rude and pushy. The surgery he performed did not work so I am left with the break cause he has informed me there is nothing he can do for me now. Would of been good to know before the surgery, pain and expense I am left with.
