    While I don't disagree with the doctor that my spine is a problem, it did not seem like he was willing to listen to me, and being told that my spine is causing me nerve issues, that does not negate the extreme loss of mobility I have in my hip joint. I did not feel like the good doctor saw me as a credible witness to my body.

    Dr. Willick is a great listener, and takes time to understand the event leading to a sports injury to understand how it relates to the diagnostic data. He is a rare combination of expertise in orthopedics and wonderful interpersonal skills, including a sense of humor. His patient-centric attitude builds even more confidence in the diagnosis and steps for recovery.
