What a schmoozer. First visit.... this doctor was all charm, and jokes. He put me completely at ease. After the surgery, I felt like I was in a completley different doctor's office. He brought his large german shephard into the examining room. This was a little off putting. My hip is ruined. He and Dr Putney have dismissed me and recommended a pain management doctor. Really!!!!! I don't my pain managed. I want my hip and knee pain dealt with. I am now completely disabled.

Went in for routine arthro...came out with knee worse than it ever was...I totally reqret letting this Dr. work on me. I would not put a review forth that was not truthful. Went back a few times because it hurt so bad.Got the requisite cortizone injection,short term fix... but my knee always went back to worse than it was before he touched it. Now, because I walk favoring that knee, my hips out of whack, so I'm looking at surgery on it. This is unacceptable. My athletic life is over. shameful
