One of the best doctors I've ever had. When I met him, he had me get an MRI that same afternoon and saw me again after the MRI. Told me I had fractured my leg in various places, bruised bones, torn ACL and LCL. I had no idea the damage my leg was in. I was panicked and he calmed me down. I said I wanted another opinion and he told me to wait as he got 3 other doctors in the room, all telling me the same thing. I needed Surgery. He then fitted me for the brace I actually needed and told me to come back after a month of PT. I had surgery 2.5 months after meeting him. After surgery, him and the PA (Andre) legit the best. Best bed side manner. They knew when to joke, when to help. My rehab was longer than "usual" so I've seen them in the corse of 1.5 years. Supposed to go back at the 2 year mark of surgery in the fall. I cannot express how grateful I met him and he was the one who performed the surgery. This was a life changing moment for me, and I'm lucky to have had such an amazing team.
