    Dr. Flying Cloud is my son's new favorite doctor. Personable, appropriate, thorough and engaging, he addressed each concern with patience and details, suggested alternatives and made sure all required information and tests were available and complete before proceeding. He and my son connected immediately and Dr. Flying Cloud was careful to phrase his communication respectfully and with disarming charm. My son's modesty was respected, and all referrals were given only once geography and other specifics were considered. I would strongly recommend Dr. Flying Cloud for any pediatric orthopedic needs, and wish now we'd invited him to Thanksgiving dinner. Wonderful guy.
