Associated Ortho Testimonials

"Dr Hinz is absolutely the best. I needed a complicated reconstrucciòn surgery after being hit by a car. All my leg ligaments were pretty much destroyed and my knee was also shattered. He did a surgery that was two in one. He always listens and he's always been kind as well as his staff. I'll give 10 starts if I could."

-Susana T.
