While he is an expert in his field, ne never once made my feel...more

"Christopher, you did an awesome job in your rehab. I appreciate the kind words but they really should be directed toward yourself for pushing through a difficult problem. As you know in almost all cases surgery is the easy part and recovery its the hard part. You really worked hard. I am glad I could help in some way. Thank you again for the opportunity to try to help. -Lee "

100% Severed flexor tendon and artery in left thumb. Dr. Reichel did an amazing job. Although I have lost some mobility I am more than happy with his work. One year later I have almost all my strength back, and the scars are minimal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Reichel!
