Been seeing him multiple times over the years for various hand problems for myself and my family members. He is thoughtful, and compassionate. Not quick to just resort to surgical fixes. I trust him. He is experienced and knows his stuff. Nobody better in Chicago for hands.

Would have liked to spend a little more time with him since it was my first visit.. That being said, he has a great bed side manner, good sense of humor. Diagnosis was on target. I would definitely recommend and go back if needed.
