not impressed. did not listen to patient concerns. also, was unable to see the break/fracture that the ER had already found and diagnosed. awful. wasted money and time. now we have to go through this process all over again and hope the bone doesn't grow back wrong in the process.

Everything went well during my first appointment, great staff and doctors. I'll have to come back for a follow up, but so far I have liked the experience. It may be a little bit expensive, but I guess it depends onthe insurance you have. However, I felt comfortable with the attention and the doctors, so for me it was worth it.
