Dr. Royer takes the extra time/care on surgery to ensure the best outcome possible. I heard great things about him from the entire crew at hospital regarding how good he is and how much attention he pays to detail. All of his healthcare peers, including physical therapy staff had nothing but good things to say about him. Coming from a healthcare profession family, when the nurses and PT, et al say good things about a Dr., they aren't kidding and those compliments along with Dr. Royer's excellent reputation are hard earned and well deserved.
