He is caring, professional and very up to date on orthopedic procedures and knowledge. I've seen him for both shoulder and knee surgeries. Most of the time, I have complications from surgery, but he is very watchful and proactive. I had very successful surgeries and continue to go to him for other orthopedic issues.
Thank you for the review, Beth.
