I was very appreciative of the time he took to walk me through my X-rays, educate me on the structure of my wrist and really help me understand what was causing my pain.

This has by far been the best appointment ever. I was ten minutes late and they still took me in. Paperwork was electronic and took 5 min to fill out. Dr explained all my x Rays one by one and then explained next course of action. Definitely go see him!!!!
