Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Field is easy to talk to and is very professional in his approach. He takes time to answer questions and explain when asked. His work on my shoulder had no complications and his followup was caring.

Dr. Larry D. Field may be a great doctor, however, after waiting over 3 hours to see him concerning pain in my wrist, which was a carpal tunnel problem, he was very impatient with and rude to me. His behavior was unprofessional. I will NOT recommend him to anyone, due to his obvious temper issues.
