I have been very pleased with Dr. French and his staff. I do not hear and he and his staff went out of their way to understand me and explain everything going on with my hand surgery. Even in the hospital all the members of the team made sure that I understood every movement made and why. I would definitely recommend Dr.. French to any one needing orthopedic surgery. LRF

Dr. French is a kind, compasionate and excellent surgeon. He did an excellent job repairing my rotor cuff. I did not feel any pain at all after the surgery (I was told by people who had this surgery done by other physicians that it was extremely painful!) He always had time to listen to me and answer questions I had, no matter how trivial. He is a doctor that cares! I would most definitely recommend Dr. French to my family and friends. He is wonderful - my shoulder pain is gone!

My son needed surgery and it took 3 weeks to get his appt and insurance info straight only to have his offce call me an hour before the appt to tell me they don't take his ins. The incompetence of his staff for me is huge red flags as to how he runs his practice and I do not want my son anywhere near them.

Poor bedside manner. Always in a rush and doesn't seem to care much.

Had an absolute terrible experience with him. He performed a ligament reconstruction surgery on my right wrist that is causing me way worse pain than before. Got a second opinion on my wrist and found there was way more to my original injury than he thought. He took the wrong steps in diagnosing my injury; which has left me partially disabled in my right wrist. When confronted with issue, Dr. French blamed me for the pain and said that I must have injured it. He would not put any effort in it.
