He periodically volunteers in the Dominican Republic with surgeons and fellows from the Curtis National Hand Center treating the local population for their upper extremity care. He has also volunteered his expertise treating the people of the Navajo nation on multiple occasions at the public health center on the Navajo reservation in Chinle, Arizona.

Office Visit / Follow-up

I waited 30 minutes to be seen and then the conversation with the doctor was only 7 minutes. $40 Copay for that was very silly. I've been very happy with the Doctor I just think follow ups should be done cheaper and over the phone.
