Patient Reviews (1)
in Belen, NM |
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
