Excellent in making an appointment and waiting time. After x-rays we’re taken everything found was discussed in detail. We were never rushed and learned a lot about what was actually causing my husband’s pain in his back and legs.

My husband had both hips replaced within 8 weeks of each other. He had literally no bruising with minimal pain. Was walking without a cane within 2 weeks of surgery!

This man is the most uncaring, unsympathetic physician I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. He is an egotistical narrcicist who cares nothing for his patients. It is all about the money in his pocket. Do not walk away...RUN,!!

His notes are false! He did not do anything he said he did! ...Read More
