Patient Comments (2)
in Roseville, CA |
This doctor is subpar. First, I saw him for a knee injury secondary to old hardware placed. His solution was to remove all the extensive hardware in my leg to fix the medial aspect of my knee. Very aggressive for a small problem. I declined and was able to fix my knee entirely on my own by starting hot yoga. This surgery could have been catastrophic. Second, a family member of mine recently had knee repair completed by him, basic, and now has to travel out of the area for repair of this.
