I came to GA from SC in search of a hand specialist capable of saving my severely damaged pinky finger. I interviewed 2 surgeons, decided on Dr Pope and now that I have seen him for the last time in follow-up to surgery, I don’t regret my decision. He saved my finger and it looks good. He has a wonderful personality, his explanations are clearly stated and in my experience, his work is impeccable. It is my opinion that he knows his craft very well and his work proves it.
