The most thorough doctor I've ever encountered , love his bedside manner ,he explained to you what and why he's doing what he's doing and he really puts you at ease. Office staff is very nice and when you have an appointment your scene at your appointment time unlike many other doctors .

Horrible Dr who shouldn't be practicing medicine. I only needed a routine bunionectomy surgery and instead he convinced me to do a more invasive lapidus arthrodosis with 2 screws in my foot and a big awful scar that looked like a 5yr old did it. I was on crutches for 4 months when he said only 2 months and I've had complications ever since and have had to have 3 other corrective surgeries. This has totally changed my quality of life and I have constant pain in my foot everyday. HORRIBLE
