Great doctor with excellent surgical skills and bedside manner. Very down to earth and approachable with all my questions. Explains your surgery in layman's terms. What more could you ask for in a doctor.

Dr Paul may be a good surgeon, but his office staff is terrible. You can expect lengthy wait times to see him (more than an hour) because they cram so many patients into a day, no apology for the wait, and no notification if they are either unprepared for or cancel your appointment. When you express your dissatisfaction, they terminate you and your entire family as patients.

He recently did a carpal tunnel release on my right hand. The incision was very tiny and did not cross over the wrist so the recovery was quick and painless. Going today to have the stitches removed. I have been putting off my knee surgery for 3 years but this surgery went so well and he is a great doctor.

He did a total hip replacement on me 4 1/2 weeks ago. Everything he told me about the procedure and what to expect happened, there were no surprises. I feel I was given the best care I could ask for from Dr. Paul and his staff. In my dealings with everyone at OSI it has been a very positive experience. After this I have never felt as good as I have in almost a year. I highly recommend this team to anyone with the confidence they would say the same.
