in Rehoboth Bach, DE |
Came to Ft. Lauderdale from DE last winter. Had a torn meniscus and needed it attended to. After on line research, I found Dr. Wells and because of his high ratings and location I made an appointment with him. The appointment was made quickly and after my initial meeting/examination I decided to have him perform surgery to fix my problem. Surgery went very well as did the follow up care, exams, and therapy. Dr. Wells is highly professional but also exceptionally personable and efficient.
