How likely are you to recommend Dr. Ip?

(Select your rating)
I presented with ‘Trigger Thumb’ a most painful condition! The alternative Thumb had the same issue the previous year which was repaired - but by the ER not a hand Specialist, and was a little Chaotic. Dr. Ip, M.D. explained only 2 Cortisone injections can be given and they being 30 days apart - if not completed such damage To the hand can be severe. I asked Doctor IP - what further help can be offered if the first and second Cortisone injections failed. His positive answer as I would need to undergo Surgery. As appears common with health conditions for me, my body just could not resolve with the two injections- I required surgery. Surgery was arranged and when I came to from Anesthesia (I had expected a simple freezing of the site) no more pain. Being immunocompromised I had to be totally compliant with Doctors orders to avoid infection. Two weeks later bandages OFF/Stitches removed I again have full control of the entire hand. Thank You Doctor Ip.
