I just felt that meanwhile I was reading my notes and making some questions to him, he wanted to leave the office. I felt very unconfortable by that. It was the first time I saw him after the MRI and I was due to have a surgical procedure and it seemed to me that my questions regarding the surgery and the post surgery were something that I was expected to know.
Dr Hechtman is the best around as an orthopedic Surgeon Make no mistake he operated on me recently for double bi lateral quad repair from an accident involving a fall. He met with me knew exactly what was the problem and performed the surgery with flying colors. I could only tell you he is the best ortho dr around
