Dr. Bicalho explained thoroughly what to expect on my 90 yr old mother's partial hip replacement. Great bedside manners. Even heard from nurses that he fed my mother and ordered her supper while checking on her. I know of no Drs that show that much compation and patience . I will definitely let others know the patience and care he showed mom.
