This was a great experience

Dr Muscal was the surgeon who operated on my son for his ACL. When I tore my ACL, I was certain that I wanted Dr Muscal to do my surgery. He is an outstanding professional who provides excellent care to his patients. He is an excellent surgeon who is also compassionate and caring. I am thankful to be in his care.
