I have had 3 occasions in the past year to see an orthopedic specialist-- for an injured shoulder, a wrist fracture and glass embedded in my hand. I went to Dr. Monica all three times and I am really glad I did. He is an excellent doctor, who is knowledgeable, professional but also exceedingly personable. He doesn't rush through appointments and you won't find a nicer guy anywhere. He also followed up with me all 3 times to see how I was doing after my appointments. I would recommend Dr. Monica very highly, and this is the first time I've ever taken the time and trouble to rate a doctor.
