Excellent service staff is exceptional friendly. I had my surgery 3 weeks ago and have never felt better. My hip surgery was a blessing and I can't thank Dr. Mihelic enough everything went according to plan. Thanks a million.

I met this Dr in the hospital in Hilton Head SC due to a broken arm while on vacation. He truly has a great bedside manner and shows care and compassion to patients. I also had to visit his office and I must say the overall experience was awesome. I would highly reccomend.
