Patient Comments (1)
in Manlius, NY |
Dr. Nancollas literally saved my career. When another doctor's kneejerk reaction was to recommend amputation of half of my thumb after an accident (I'm a professional pianist), Dr. Nancollas' empathy and expertise with musicians enabled me to keep my thumb and maintain an active playing career. I can't recommend him enough. A brilliant, kind man.
