I would highly recommend Dr. Raven111 he is very knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. He and his staff went way out of their way to help my sister whom had cut off the tip of her middle finger. We were so concerned and stressed but Dr Raven and his staff put us at ease. I'm so grateful and fortunate to have found Dr Raven and would highly recommend him and his clinic.

Dr. Raven III's Care Philosophy

Dr. Raven believes in a multidisciplinary approach and always maximizes conservative treatment before considering surgery. This includes physical and occupational therapy, complementary and alternative medicine, prescription medications and steroid injections when appropriate. If conservative treatment modalities fail, Dr. Raven may recommend surgery using state-of-the-art techniques. All treatment is aimed towards pain control and improving hand and upper extremity function.
