About Me

Every patient is different. I explain conditions and situations fully to each patient and involve them in the decision-making process. Most patients have a pretty good idea what their problem is and how it is affecting their life. My job is to guide them to the best solution for their particular situation. I help my patients understand their condition so that together, we can make it better.

I was reading the reviews and noticed someone else mentioned the disappearing review... this, too, happened to me. I reviewed him a year ago and it has disappeared. He did a lousy, botched job with my surgery. Had to go to another orthopedic surgery for correction. Will see if this reviews remains up. Bottom line I guess you cant trust reviews.

The staffers was warm and friendly, they get you in and out in a relatively quick fashion. Schedualing and rescheduling is quick and easy.
