    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.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

STAY AWAY!

Worst doctor I’ve EVER been to. I went in about a lump in my wrist. At the first visit, I waited an hour. When he finally got in the room, he poked the lump in my wrist, and said, “I don’t think that’s a ganglion cyst. We need an MRI,” and left. The visit lasted less than 3 minutes. I thought, “Wow, he’s really begin thorough.” I didn’t realize at the time it was his way of getting through patients quickly and racking up more visits. The MRI cost us $300 out of pocket (plus $20 each visit). The second visit, I waited over an hour, only to learn that they couldn’t find any MRI results. It hadn’t even been read! He shrugged and said, “We’ll just give it a cortisone injection.” I told him I didn’t want an injection without knowing what the lump was, and he said, “We would treat it with cortisone regardless.” So why the expense of the MRI?! I’d had cortisone injections before, and they were no big deal; I just didn’t cortisone without knowing what we were dealing with. As I was telling him I didn’t want a cortisone injection, he became impatient, grabbed my hand and jabbed the cortisone in. It was the most painful injection I’ve ever had. Pain shot up my arm and down my fingers. It was a full three days before I could even use my hand. A week later, my hand is still bruised and sore. After the injection, he said, “Schedule another appointment in six weeks” and he walked out. Dr. Horner is the worst doctor I have ever been to. He is incompetent, impatient, and uncaring—and yet, somehow in spite all those negatives, he is extremely arrogant. That is a very dangerous combination. STAY AWAY!
