He seems very knowledgeable, but his bedside manner is very poor. He ordered an x-ray on a soft tissue injury, which was completely unnecessary. He spent a total of 2.5 minutes in the room with me talking to me like I was undereducated. Continuously explaining that he will not do surgery, which was not what I wanted anyway. He did not allow me to speak, nor did he give me any instructions. Very poor communication abilities which is a hard stop for me in the future, and will make sure people know.

He was a know it all and overall, rude. Only surgery could help me, didn't even offer me a shot. I was in agony so I had the surgery. I was his 5th patient at 10:00 in the morning! Ridiculous! The surgical orders were written incorrectly (surgery to be performed on BOTH hands) not just my left. When I pointed it out to him he just shrugged his shoulders, "I wonder how that happened." How? incompetence, that's how! Can you imagine, this is right before surgery! I was in absolute AGONY after the surgery. My thumb is frozen, won't budge and it's been almost 2 years POST surgery. I DID ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING I WAS INSTRUCTED TO DO and went to therapy ASAP and for 8 months. I still have pain and numbness up my arm. He made the arthritis WORSE in my fingers. Can't wear my wedding rings because knuckles are enlarged! In addition, the screws in my hand are very painful and bothersome and need to come out. He NEVER explained this to me before surgery. Do yourself a favor and RUN for the hills.

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.

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
