Explained the problem, asked questions, and listened and responded to me. He is in the room, in that he is engaged with the patient instead of aloof or thinking about the next room he has to get to. He also gave a difficult shot himselfand gave concern of follow up. Smiled. Seems so simple but you would be surprised at the number of health care professionals who are no personable.

I gladly refer patients to him at every opportunity. I am now trusting him, with my left hip replacement. I am confident that I will have a much better quality of life afterwards.
