I appreciated that surgery was not the first option nor pushed.

Dr. Sullivan is one of the best providers I've ever seen.
Patient | June 11, 2018

In order to receive the necessary care we have to explain the entire problem... the doctor... work they are the best doctors and assistants.
Patient | June 1, 2018

The provider is great, I like him as a person, and I have full confidence in him as a doctor. I understand he is busy, but I have spent maybe 5 minutes total with him during my last 2 follow up visits. I'd like him to spend more time explaining my current progress, asking questions about what and how I am doing in physical therapy, and explaining what to expect in the future. What are milestones I should be looking for? What is the timeline to meet to these milestones? Etc.

I was lucky, no, I was so Blessed to have Dr. Sullivan as my Orthopedic Surgeon. I had a very difficult injury. He happened to be on call at the ER in my hometown the morning this occurred.
