He was arrogant. He Perceived our questions as argumentative and not fact finding. I was glad I had a family member with me to debrief with after this very weird consult. I am sure he is a fine surgeon but This is not the experience I am looking for in a consult office visit.

My medical challenge is a possible right knee replacement. I was received promptly for a scheduled appointment; however, I was left to wait in the treatment room for 35+ minutes. Upon being treated, I was pretty much left with the impression that there was nothing that could be done to help me. It was stated several times that I was too young and that I needed to fully wear out my current knee. My issue with this assessment is that I have been burdened with my condition for over 30 years. Being told to continue to suffer for many more years does not provide me any service what so ever. I am totally fine with being offered a new path for treatment, but at least offer me a pathway to an improved quality of life. Ultimately I was presented with the offer to inject my knee with steroids. I accepted based on the recommendation, and this has been a huge mistake. My discomfort has been greater since my treatment than it was before. My knee now feels as though I have debris floating around inside of it, and when it gets positioned wrong it is extremely uncomfortable. The knee has been swollen and stiff, as well as unsteady. Before my treatment, my knee was simply painful. After the treatment, my knee has been more painful, as well as unsteady, swollen, and unpredictable. I am not a fan of this treatment or the lack of information relayed to me in the process. Again, if I do not need a replacement that is terrific, even though other doctors have disagreed. However, at least offer a pathway to a solution.

I came in to address the scar tissue and adhesion from previous surgery. he refused to even look at it, even though my PVP recommended that I see him about the problem. It was a complete waste of time. I will not be back. I still have the problem but am looking (outside S&W network) for a qualified surgeon who has the courtesy to at least look at the problem I came in for!

very conscious provider. helps patient weigh options and attitude about major surgery seems to be, you will have to get it fixed eventually, but if you still can maneuver with tolerable/more than tolerable limitations, let\'s wait to do surgery.
