I will tell you about my visit,...useless, it wasted my time, no records of previous visits for wrist hand problems. I suggest it would be wise to save time and money and go to local Urgent Care Center, better diagnosis, less annoying and less expensive.

Doctor Goitz operated on my carpel and cubital tunnel issues in one surgery. I had absolutely zero pain. 6 months later my hand movement has returned to near normal whereas before, I could not fasten buttons on my shirts.

Dr. Goitz performed a surgical repair of a ruptured distal biceps tendon on me. Excellent results with no post surgery issues. I regained complete function and strength in the injured arm.
