Obviously, he is an excellent surgeon. He also has a very direct and open manner, answers questions, explains terms, and gives me a good picture of what is going on during follow-up. I think the fact that I'm very compliant in PT and work hard at getting stronger and reducing my residual pain helps our conversations. And he actually laughs with me occasionally.
