Awful man! Did sx on my 15 yo with an open fx of the forarm. It healed in a 45 degree angle. He cont told me this was normal and needed no therapy. I took it up in myself to see another Dr. This surgeon was fit to b tied on how Geter left him He has had to go under 2 more surgery's with lits of therapy. His arm will never b the same. The Board of Or tho surgeons took action against him. Unfortunately he still practices!
