I saw his handiwork on my estranged husband when he had to amputate a finger back in October 2020. He was very meticulous and how everything was done even as much as doing the work himself as far as dressing the wound he explained everything thoroughly was very tentative and very straightforward. This gave me every indication that he is an excellent doctor as well as the surgeon in his specialty.
