Patient Comments (1)
in Pasadena, CA |
He did an excellent job on surgery I recently had for a microdiscectomy. He was excellent at explaining the procedure and following up with me afterward to see how I was doing. The team he has at Huntington Orthopedics was very courteous and addressed all of my concerns and questions throughout the process.
