I was given this info from the PA, which allowed me to process a bit, and then the doctor, which allowed me to ask some deeper questions and I appreciate this method.

He listened to how the injury happened, what I'd done thus far to care for it, my concerns moving forward, honored my personal convictions about a more holistic care approach, and provided a very conservative/non-alarmist care plan that gave my body a chance to heal on itself on for a reasonable amount of time before checking back in. I was concerned about one particular bone/ligament, and he took the time to explain what was happening in there and assured me.

I appreciated Dr. Casstevens' sense of humor, ability to quickly diagnose the problem with my hand, and even said that the condition may resolve itself without any intervention so waiting a while is a reasonable course of action. I just like him as a human being, and appreciate how he helped me with my hand a year ago. Great doctor!

I saw Dr. Casstevens for a problem on my left hand, that I had previously undergone surgery on for my right hand. Dr. Casstevens provided me an easy quick and trouble free solution that I am really disappointed was not offered to me by my first hand surgeon, who is not in your system. My first hand surgeon gave me general anesthesia and open hand surgery, with a bunch of rehab. Your doctor? A 15 minute procedure and I was on my way. He is tops.
