My husband had trauma injury with a broken femur, and ambulance made recommendation to upstate local & we were very fortunate to have Dr. Kistler as his surgeon. Great bedside manner & highly recommend. We are from out of state but will be making the trip back up for the follow ups. Would not want to take the chance of getting Dr. Involved. Very pleased
