Great job. I had a very complicated case and was slowly finding myself in a wheelchair. Within 2 weeks after surgery I was using a walker and 6 weeks later I was walking on my own. Took time with me to make sure all my questions were answered and I was comfortable throughout. Highly recommend.

Would not recommend this idiot to anyone not even for the care of farm animals. If he is assigned as your provider get away as fast as possible because your well being is in danger

I traveled from a significant distance on the advice of a family member. Cannot recommend enough. He truly gets involved in his patients lives. Took time to explain everything.

Explained my condition and took time to review my X-rays and MRI. I had previously been recommended surgery by a different surgeon but he got me better with injections. Would recommend.
