Patient Comments (1)
in Boone, NC |
I have had 3 surgeries and I'm not nearly to the point doctor Wudel confidently predicted I would be after 1. His follow-up has been horrible, frankly ridiculous. He way oversold his abilities and way under delivered. I am now facing an additional procedure to repair his failed Hardware and I'm certainly going to another doctor.
