At OANO, we believe in direct patient care. In today's world-where it is almost the norm to be treated by nurse practitioners, physician assistants, residents, or some other form of "physician extender"-we always see and examine each patient ourselves. As board certified orthopaedic surgeons, we perform all of our own procedures and surgeries and rounds in the hospital on our patients. We do not use an automated phone tree for scheduling or emergency purposes; a member of our trained office staff is always available to speak with you. We believe that this philosophy provides the best outcome for our patients.
