Patient Comments (1)
in Downey, CA |
My wife had a spiral fracture just above the ankle. She had gone to St Judes In Fullerton. Two doctors in their Orthopedics Department told her she was healed after two months, but she still had a lot of pain and could not walk very well. She was recommended to Doctor Chambers by a retired Ortho Specialist. Dr. Chambers looked at her X-rays and determined immediately that she was not healed. He took over she was healed after a year. I could not ask for a better doctor.
