Patient Comments (2)
in syracuse ny |
Him and the practice use older methods of surgery for the brain which resulted in increased issue changes and then pushes seeing you for situations that need to be addressed before your appointment which is months away resulting in a hospital visit just for them to say contact your surgeon. My whole upstate experience is horrible.
in Carthage, NY |
At our office visits, he was very upfront about what I was facing and went over everything, step by step. I left his office knowing exactly what my diagnosis was, what surgery would entail, and what to expect after surgery. At surgery, he went over all the details again, for my husband and family, so that we were all on the same page about what was happening. Great bedside manner, very knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. Highly recommend!
