I have told many people how the doctor's there are very respectful. All of the doctors that I have seen have good bedside manners. Also the Dr.'s explain so that you understand what is going on now, and other options that he could use if it does not get better. Plus ortho west is up on the latest technology.

You could improve by me not having to tell my Story 3 different times. I told the nurse and then a PA and then the surgeon and the doctor and then I still had to wait a little bit for my injections. So I think if they could read the chart as that happens, and there was something with the new dictation system, but I wasn't very fond of so, but I do really like him and the staff is great. Thank you.
