In April of 2017 I fell and broke my humerus bone (and I can tell you it was not very… humorous that is) . Fortunately for me, Dr. Song is the specialist my insurance sent me to see. He scheduled surgery right away and did a fantastic job putting me back together. He put a stainless steel plate in my arm and I am completely healed and back to all of the activities I love. This was my second experience with Dr. Song. I fell a few years ago and broke my left wrist and he set the bone and got me back to normal in no time. In addition, many friends and acquaintances have also been treated by Dr. Song and every one of them rave about the great job he does. He really knows his stuff and his work is excellent. His staff is also very good. They have always been friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. If you have the unfortunate situation that requires a hand/arm specialist I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Song and his staff.
I HAD SEEN A DIFFERENT SURGEON FOR A WC BREAK. THAT CASE HAS LONG BEEN CLOSED, WC REFUSED TO RE-OPEN. DR SONG REFUSED TO TAKE MY CASE BUT REFUSED TO SAY WHY. ACCORDING TO HEALTH INS, IT'S BECAUSE IT'S WC. IT IS NOT AND THE STAFF KNEW THAT WHEN TRYING TO SET UP THE APPOINTMENT. I WOULD AVOID NEVADA OROTHOPEDIC AND SPINE AND ANY DOCTORS ASSOCIATED WITH THEM, TOTAL INCOMPETENCE
I would tell the world how wonderful this Doctor really is, he has helped me over and over again with pain and surgery on my hand and looks like I will be doing the other hand and wrist. Have been seeing Dr. Song about 6 years now, and think the world of him and his staff. If you are looking for a caring Dr. This is the one to chose, he is really the best at what he does. If you have questions he will be right up front with you and you will understand what he is telling you..He is looking out for you! Thank You Dr. Song. Your the best...You are a 10+ and your staff.
