Dr. Bolano is the best surgeon. He took such such good care of me. He is no nonsense and doesn't suffer fools. He's so professional and extremely talented. We are so fortunate to have him in our area.

7:30am appointment and he strolls in around 8:15 with coffee in hand. 18 months after surgery and my hand is worse than the first time I saw him. I cannot recommend.

Dr Bolano was recommended to me by another orthopedic office in the area as the best hand surgeon around. He has done surgery on my thumb and joint replacement on my finger and I am highly pleased with the results. He explains the problem and the solution well and demonstrates exactly how he wants...more
