Dr Early has been amazing with three generations of our family! He was the on call orthopedic surgeon when my grandma fell and horrible breaks to her left leg and foot. Despite being a 'pediatric' doctor he did amazing with her and all of her complicated medical conditions and medications. A few years later when I had a fall of my own I called to see if he would be willing to take an adult for a nonemergency and there was no problem. My daughter broke her foot and he was amazing with her.

Five stars? Really? REALLY! Four surgical procedures; a dozen follow-ups .. for this that and the other thing. Every single procedure/every single visit, I felt the love. Dr. Early is a gift to those who of us whose lives got plopped into his hands. All true! (and then some)
