      He is very patient-centric. Takes his time until you are comfortable with the situation.His surgical skills are awesome. He was able to make incisions in a tattooed area without cutting the ink. I had trouble with the surgical scheduling, it took almost four weeks to accomplish. Along with the typical wait times (though I do purposely schedule at the end of the day - so that should be an expectation) of over 45 minutes... are the only negatives.
      in Broomfield, CO |
      I came in with an MRI done (shoulder). Assistant said we won't need an xray and let the Dr. know I had MRI results. Made me do xray anyways. Dr. was surprised I had MRI. His assistant loaded it on the computer. Never looked at xrays, so I assume that was to pad the bill? After looking at the MRI says there is nothing wrong even though I can't lift my arm and am in severe pain. Uses a cancer analogy to say "I dunno what's wrong". Then suggests blood work and cortisone. Was rude and not helpful.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
