I've been a patient since 2014 with three surgeries. This is the place to go. Physical therapy is also top notch, however, there needs to be more Therapists that can take later appointments.

please teach your staff how to wrap toes. My first dressing came off once I left the room. When I got to the elevator both my bandages came off. There was no one there for a half hour to get them redressed

It was good. I just wish I had been able to see Dr Michael Thompson sooner. I injured my foot on 8/27 but wasn't able to see him until 9/14.
