Dr. Prinz was very thorough in his exam. He explained all the options for treatment. I liked that as a handsurgeon, he prefers to do surgery as a last option. He was very kind and caring. He took his time with me, and was concerned about my comfort in getting a shot in my thumb. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
