Patient Comments (1)
in Boca Raton |
Did my sons double hip osteotomy. Great bedside manor... always takes ample time to meet with us. Only minor complaint was that a bad wound on the entire back of his heel caused by the cast rubbing against it was not taken serious enough. We ended up having to see a wound specialist and caused his healing processes to be that much more painful and slower.
