Dr. May was accurate in his diagnosis and straight to the point. Does great at answering questions thoroughly and as a teen made me feel very comfortable and sure throughout the process. Even though the injury ended up being worse than the MRI showed he did well at ensuring the injury was corrected without complications. He even came to check up on me after my follow up appt to make sure all was well.
