    Great doctor all around Very knowledgable in sports medicine. He takes the time to explain your procedure and never rushes in and out at your appointment. He performed my sons shoulder surgery and he is so happy with the outcome. Also the hospital staff at Dekalb are great!!!! We have used him for many years and several family members.
