He is excellent. He took a look at an MRI I had taken some months ago and gave me a straightforward diagnosis of what's wrong. He gave me some treatment options, and he will be there when it is time forthe surgery. He also didn't waste my time or money with unnecessary x-rays or PT appointments. Very efficient.
