    He's a good doctor.. However, he should make himself more aware of what it like to be on the patients end of surgery and it's aftermath. There is a significant disconnect between what he thinks it is like and what it is actually like. I say this as someone who can tolerate a lot of pain, pain management, aftercare etc. please don't t take my feedback as that of a whiner. What he and his staff prepared me for ( I had similar surgeries on both feet two years apart) had little to do with the actual reality of what it entailed. If I were not as young and healthy as I am, if I didn't have the wherewithal I have, if I didn't have the support I have , the tolerance for pain, this would have been a very, very difficult experience to go through. Made more difficult because so many things were surprises I could have easily been prepared for of he or anyone on his staff k ew how to prepare me.
