Please save yourself serious disappointment and find another hand surgeon in San Francisco. My experience was awful. Unprofessional and highway robbery are two terms which predominate my feeling about this doctor.
There were two doctors my primary care physician initially recommended for my wrist injury; Dr. Edward Diao and Dr. Richard Sherwood. I went to Dr. Diao first simply because his office was physically closer. Huge mistake.
After my initial visit and the subsequent $750 consultation for a five minute tops visit (during which he stepped out to take a personal call I might add), I couldn't go back. Went to Dr. Sherwood subsequently and he was AWESOME. Could not have been more than night and day between these two doctors.
Please, please trust these reviews. I honestly wish I had checked first.
