Busy but a Hero; for when you really need the help

Very impressive - intelligent, fast, and focused on getting a good result. I had severe trauma - he gave me options for therapy and wasn't just surgery. Not for someone who will chat or offer a lot of sympathy - but someone you can completely trust to get you back walking again if it can be done. My hero

This Doc is a GOD!

He's been my family knee doc for about 12 years. So I have known him a long time. He "is" the best! He's done both of my knee's and he diagnosed my daughters knee problems and corrected her problems without surgery. This man is a great doctor and regular guy. Very caring and the most important thing is understands that "we" all don't speak doctor jargon, so he breaks the info down in plain english so an idiot like me can understand what to expect. I give 5 rubber gloved thumbs up to this man!!!!!
