Do not let this doctor operate on you!

I went to this doctor for a meniscus repair. The meniscus repair ended up at only a 5% area on outer edge. He also decided to "clean up a little of that cartilage." I've been in pain and a trip around the grocery store is about all I've been able to handle these last two years since the operation. He did lubrication shots (no help, more money for him.) Finally he had me try a voltaren gel and said if it didn't help "I don't know what to tell you." That was when our conversations on the subject ended. I don't know how he can get these good ratings on here. Most arrogant, could care less doctor I've ever met with.

Right Shoulder Surgery

I DID NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT WHEN I WENT TO SEE HIM, I FELT I WAS RUSHED. I KEPT TELLING HIM MY SHOULDER WAS STILL HURTING AND I WAS STILL IN ALOT OF PAIN AND HE DID NOTHING EXCEPT GIVE ME A SLIP FOR MORE PHYSICAL THERAPHY. AS MUCH AS I COMPLAINED NO OTHER TEST WAS ORDERED AND I DID HAVE A DEEP TEAR ON THE SHOULDER AFTER ANOTHER DOCTOR ORDERED ANOTHER MRI, AND I NEVER WENT BACK TO HIM AND I WILL NEVER TELL ANYONE ELSE TO GO TO HIM. ALL THE PAIN I WENT THROUGH I WOULDN'T SEND MY WORST ENEMY TO HIM.

excellent treatment

I saw this doctor after I had shattered my wrist after I fell on ice. He did surgery on my wrist with pins and screws and I never had a problem after. I would highly recommend.

Good doctor

He did my mother's knee replacement. She is 80. He took the time to explain everything and now she is walking without any pain. He is on time which is rare these days.

Good surgeon

I was referred to this physician by a friend. After a bunch of xrays, he took the time to listen to me and do a full exam. Many times I have been to a doctor and all they do is look at a computer screen, He then took the time to explain my condition to me in terms that I could understand. He did not rush to recommend surgery as I had feared and now I am better.
