Very Knowledgeable however I seldom felt my questions were answered even when I asked them directly. Avoided being direct which is what I prefer, sugar coated until later visits and then would announce more accurate information that I had continually asked over the months. I had a Tibeal/Plateau break with compartment syndrome any many surgeries. I developed a infection that delayed my recovery - I felt it was ignnored until to late. Poor advocate for pain. He did however, save my leg!
