This visit was to further assess carpel include current pain, options and potential for surgery. This provider and the team that I encountered were very professional, proficient, easy to talk with, and demonstrated a willingness to listen, understand and offer the best clinical information.

First time at this provider. I wanted a second opinion on a procedure for my left hand thumb. After discussions between provider and his staff and my wife and I we decided this provider had a better procedure for fixing my problem and scheduled surgery

time spent in the exam room was minimal and felt as if he was rushed...this was a follow up appointment after having elbow surgery nearly 3 months ago and I would have expected some time discussing what was to be expected next regarding physical therapy and physical limitations
