He arrived to the office an hour after my appointment was scheduled. The other patients waiting said this was normal. The medical assistant couldn't figure out how to put the blood pressure cuff on my arm. After 3 tries, she made something up and wrote it down. No one apologized for keeping me...more

He knows his stuff where another orthopedic surgeon completely missed the problem. I have great confidence in his skill and professionalism.
