in Mesa, AZ |
I had my legs crushed by a drunk driver and had seen other doctors prior to finding Dr Chick, and what a difference. His expertise and wealth of knowledge as an Orthopedic Surgeon is off the charts. He is the only Dr. I would recommend after needing 7 surgeries and 25 years, pain free!
