Super painful swelling on wrist

Unlike that other Hand Surgeon (who will remain unnamed here), Dr Ertel showed caring. He SHOWED ME MY X-RAYS and explained his diagnosis, which is not the case with every Doctor. He also did not push Surgery on me - which I liked.

Saved my hand

Dr. Ertel took the time to look at the options of my wrist. Other doctors said I would have a bad wrist and really could not do anything for me but Dr. Ertel stuck with me and gave me back the use of my wrist. Thanks
