excellent clinician. thoroughly explained problem.

He took the time to show me exactly where the fracture _____ is and how it will be healing. Sitting expectations was a good thing as I tend to be inpatient about such matters.
December 2017
I would have preferred to know ahead of time that I was seeing a PA-C rather than an MD. He was great, but it was a surprise when I was expecting an MD.
December 2017
The man knows what he´s doing and has a great personality too.
November 2017
When meeting him for my appointment he was extremely rushed and it felt like i was being ushered in and out of the room as fast as possible. This does not make me feel confident for future care. While he may have been over booked or had other unforeseen problems arise, no patient should have to be rushed in and out of the office in this manner.
July 2017
The provider spent time with me explaining what was happening to my body and what I could expect in future years. He also mentioned potential options we might explore in the future if the current remedy stops providing relief.
June 2017
Very friendly. Explained issue clearly. Spent adequate time with me, took extra time after appointment to tell me something he discussed with surgeon, very happy with care, seemed genuine.
June 2017
