We've seen it before

We strive to work closely with our patients and their families, other medical professionals, employers and insurance carriers to provide you with needed care. We know that the path to recovery from minor to major injuries can be a difficult one. Our highly specialized physicians and caring staff are interestedin your success. If you have a question or problem while treating with us,  we want to hear about it.

For example , at Baystate Medical Center our hand and wrist surgery experience for our three surgeons combined is well over  25 years as hand surgeons who have taken Emergency call for  acute problems and the most severe injuries. For overall experience with hand surgery we have even more combined years than that!  This give our surgeons and our office staff a high level of  wisdom and experience  that is put to work for you. If it involves the hand and wrist and upper extremity our surgeons and  staff have seen it before. Whether we evaluate you in one of our three offices in Springfield, Ware or Enfield or go to any one of the locations where we do surgery, this experience follows.
