Verified Patient Reviews
His office is incredibly professional and super efficient. I was able to be seen very quickly and then also schedule a followup test and visit literally in minutes without any pushback or delay. His assistant was also delightful and the X-ray technician cracked a few jokes to make me more comfortable.
The visit was quite impressive, everyone showed professionalism. The wait time was shorter than what I thought..
He's got a great personality, easy to talk to and he wasn't all about surgery!!
He explained everything about his diagnosis to me thoroughly and concisely and detailed my near and long term options; showed me my x-rays and told me what surgery would or would not do, and then let me select the option with which I was most comfortable, which is what a physician is supposed to do.
He did a really good job. I can't wait for my next vist
