My son hurt his knee skiing. Dr. Highhouse reviewed the MRI and stated confidently that he needed ACL surgery and was ready to schedule. We got a second opinion in Indy which stated that the ACL was in fact intact and would improve over time with NO surgery. We tried to call Dr. Highhouse to talk about the differing opinions. Over MANY calls to the office, NO call was ever made to answer our questions. 6 months now with no surgery my son runs, plays ball and new MRI confirmed ACL intact. INSANE!
