Hand surgery in Cincinnati

The best surgeon in Cincinnati. The hand operation went quite well. My little finger had a vein injected into it, which helped straighten it up like the others. Dr. Jay Johannigman was extremely kind and detailed in his explanation of the procedure. Thank you very much.

I've never seen a medical office that is so well-organized and operated. There is no commotion, no annoying music, and no television. Every single individual I encountered was clean, professional, pleasant, and friendly. I have no hesitation about recommending your facility. Thank you for a pleasant experience.
