Very thorough in discussions and answered all questions; wanted to make sure we understood the information we were given. Explained the treatment options available and why he might choose one over another in my particular case which was very helpful.Took the extra time to locate a ring-cutter at the clinic so that my wedding band could be removed from my increasingly swollen finger before injury occurred...above and beyond!

Couldn't have asked for a better orthopedic doctor. Dr. Hodax had explained everything to me and had answered all my questions that I had pre and post surgery. He made sure he answered all my questions and made sure I asked all the questions that I had. Dr. Hodax also came into the room every time with good bedside manners. Dr. Hodax also gave me options and let me make the decision without pushing the subject on what he thinks is best. He let me make the decision of what I wanted to do and went from there with what my decision was. He also took the time to really listen to my concerns I had.
