Patient Comments (1)
in Rome, NY |
Dr. LaFrance surgically repaired my rotator cuff, bicep, shaved my shoulder in one surgery. A year later cleaned out my knee via meniscus repair. He is an excellent surgeon. He takes the time to do a thorough evaluation and provide options (not always surgical). His follow-up care is excellent. I highly recommend Dr. LaFrance not only because of his excellent level of care but because he will be very frank in ensuring you do your part in your recuperation and therapy. Thank you Dr. LaFrance.
