Dr that truly cares about his patients as demonstrated in all interactions. Asks questions, listens to you and answers at a level the patient can understand. I just had my second THR by him and his surgery protocol and team focus on doing all possible to avoid the complications of infection and blood clots while making you comfortable with the procedure. You are in good hands with his orthopedic team!
