Great guy, very personable. He offers the latest treatment options that are not locally available. I traveled to see him and it was worth it. I highly recommend him.

He literally put my arm back together after I pretty much destroyed it. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs quality orthopedic care!

Very informative. Treated my shoulder condition when other area doctors could not. I've sent two of my friends there and they were both happy with their results also. Would recommend.
