My daughter had surgery on her finger he was very nice explained everything to her and was very caring . She is 7 and wanted a pink cast after surgery and they had to put it in a ace bandage for a week so he wrapped it in pink med tape on it. She was so happy I have never known a doctor to do something like that to make a little girl happy . I highly recommend him.
Emily, we're so glad that we were able to go above and beyond your expectations! Your recommendation means so much to us and we're so happy to have earned it. Thank you again for taking the time to let the world know about your positive experience. Have a great day!

He was very cold. I told him about me not being able to put my arms on the armrests without them hurting. He said well don't put your arms on the armrests. It was not funny to me. The surgery on my left hand when good. He gave me hydrocodone and recovery went very well. When I had surgery on my right hand. He gave me Tramadol. This recovery has still been very hard and painfull. When I brought it up to him. He became upset and told me that my surgery didn't require pain medicine. Not recommended
