    Very thorough explaining my condition. Very knowledgable. Dr. Friermood does not do surgery. He is president of Panorama and responsible for building Ortho Colorado Hospital. He has moved Panorama from 5 doctors to 36 doctors. He is a brilliant business doctor and made Panorama a leading practice in Colorado. To give him one star is absurd.
