Real good doctor , very professional and his staff is also very good. Nowadays trusted good doctors are very rare , most of the MDs are trying to make money , prescribed too many medicine, too many visits but he is exceptionally good .

What a great doctor... I would trust him with my life. He relieved my pain in my knee and was very specific about the possibilities of what was to come next. He was a little apprehensive about going into a knee replacement when he has other avenues of relief. I am playing golf again and really...more
