Dr Pope has a very warm bedside manner. He explained the extent of my wrist injury and the type of surgery needed to fix it. His willingness to answer all of my questions and not feel rushed will definitely a big plus. The entire staff was wonderful & welcoming! I will definitely go back in the future if necessary!
