Patient Comments (1)
Fresno, CA |
I had an appt for the 1st time Oct. 30. I was looking forward to getting the Dr.'s prof. evaluation re cyst on my wrist. I was not disappointed. He used an i-pad + ultrasound & showed me what my cyst looked like, (+muscles & arteries). This was helpful. He also talked to me about options for surgery but did not push one or another option. He gave me info. I needed, though I'm still deciding. (I can call if have more Q's.) (Sylvia C. was very helpful too.)-- I'd 100% trust Dr. H. as a surgeon!
