Dr. DiNicholas provided me with a gold standard knee stabilizer. It was greatly better than the one provided in the ER. It has made management of my broken leg so much easier and more comfortable. He gave me great advice about traveling and seeing an orthopedic doctor in Minnesota. He was kind and attentive.
