    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Poor and UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!!!

We went in and this "Doctor" was being very rude and dismissive to my daughter's complaints. Not only was he dismissive to her, he began judging her clothing, makeup, and other irrelevant offensive things not related to her health. He should be more professional so his patients feel safe around him.
