1st visit - Everyone is very nice and don't get the feeling of being "herded" thru the process like some others local orthopedic Drs. do.

Has many approaches to treatment. Tries several to see which works best. Glad I can delay surgery for a while thanks to him.

Offers several treatment options in addition to surgery. Focus is on the patient. Only one instance of overly long wait & the doctor himself apologized.
