Incompetent

When asked a series of basic questions - the response is "I went to medical school for 7 years". THat's great, but I wanted to understand my condition. What's wrong with a question. Only insecure people with deep questions about their personal competence respond so defensively. 2nd opinion revealed "Dr." Ross overlooked a critical issue in my wrist. Jerk. - No, incompetent jerk and he knows it when he looks in the mirror.

great doctor, great surgeon

Dr. Richer was personable and intelligent. He made the correct diagnosis after other physicians failed to do so. He operated on my wrist and it has never felt better. He makes you feel like you are family to him. Highly recommended.

He seemed rather uninterested. He did not provide recommendations to help with my injury. In fact, after 8 months, it is still not healed and I tried his recommendations...
