Listens to complaint. Ask questions. Ask about at home treatment taken. Looks at x-rays and shows patient his observations from the x-rays. Suggest treatment to get patient back to better health. Discussions options to obtain maximum comfort and health.

I really appreciate that he didn't immediately jump to surgery and he listened attentively to my concerns. I do wish that he provided more info about the injections I received in both knees-e.g.what material was, expected length of effects/possible relief, possible side effects.
