I just wish he took my Medicare Aetna because of this I am going to have to drop him. As far as I am concerned he is one of the best. I have had three operations performed by him. He was my first selection of "bone" Drs as one of my grandfathers would have said. I healed really quick after the operations and accused him of praying beforehand. He just walked out the door with that grin of his and I do believe he does but praise God he does, we needs the Great Physician helping and leading. I think I'm a little bias tho. There's just something about him and the official you don't find. A quiet, strong strength like someone's in charge and they are following. I now have to find a find a strong strength pocketbook to pay for I did not know he was out of my insurance. I thought I had asked but with m. P. U never know who Dodgers and didn't. Oh well life goes go. Please tho make an appt and go see one of the best you will not be sorry you did.
