I was very pleased with this care provider and his staff. I saw the provider on-time and was taken care of in a quick manner.

Only negative is for the Delatore Co that gave me my boot. It is ackward and I know other providers have much better equipment, especially better fitting boots for a sprained ankle. I spoke to the doctor and he tried to make it work but the boot I have is the only one Deletore uses. They should carry more types.

This was the one-year followup on my hip replacement that I had 10/17/2016. This experience has been a very positive one. Dr. Gaffney gave me my life back. The surgery went very well and the healing has gone very well.
