Dr. Engineer is a phenomenal physician. He's a subject matter expert that is great at speaking in terms that his patients will understand. He sets clear expectations for treatment and recovery and gives you the opportunity (and encourages) questions. Even better, he has an impeccable bedside manner, and has hired a best in class a team. I tell anyone who will listen about my great experience.

Dr Engineer has a great bedside manner. Took his time explaining my surgery, what he was going to do. What I was going to feel and not feel :) He also explained the healing process and how I would most likely be feeling.

Dr. Engineer was an excellent doctor. He was prompt, kind and courteous, and he spent as much time as necessary during appointments. He performed hand surgery, and the procedure was explained well, especially how I would feel after surgery and for how long. His staff was excellent, I would highly recommend him.

I would hesitate to recommend Dr. Engineer. I came in for issues in my left arm and he was extremely quick to offer surgery without suggesting alternatives prior. The injury was relatively new and no suggestions other than surgery were provided except one round of corticosteroids. In the end, the surgery had no effect other than lost work and bills. Very rarely do I review things online but in this situation I thought it might be important for future patients. He appears to have the highest

If you are reading this, look no further as you have found THE top notch hand surgeon. Dr. Engineer and his more than courteous and personable staff are undeniably the BEST in the hand care and, arguably, patient care industry! To say Dr. Engineer is knowledgeable in his field would be an understatement. He provides both experience and compassion in the delivery of his assessments of your diagnosis and next steps for treatment of the same. A huge THANKS to Dr. Engineer and his staff!

I dissevered a nerve to my ring finger. Dr. Engineer resectioned it. He explained the healing procedure and what I could expect. He was vigilant about my therapy and generally concerned. His description of the healing process was correct almost to the week! Very impressive doctor on all counts.
