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-raytechnician cracked a few jokes to make me more comfortable.

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 withwhich I was most comfortable, which is what a physician is supposed to do.
