in Blue Springs, MO |
Fine surgeon, worked with him in the OR several years ago. Gentle technique, qiuck worker, doesn't muck about, trust him implicitly. When I needed my gallbladder out, he was the go-to guy for a good result. Still is. Great trauma surgeon too. Absolutely gold standard all the way in the OR.
