Frequently Asked Questions
For whom do you provide care?
We care for individuals of all activity levels and all ages, from newborns to our most senior citizens.
How far in advance should I make an appointment?
Dr. Besh understands the importance of attention and quality care. Therefore, he tries to see patients within one week or the same day when possible. Please call the office as soon as you need an appointment.
Why visit a hand surgeon?
If you have an eye problem, you see an eye doctor. If you have a heart problem, you see a cardiologist. If you have a hand problem, you see a hand surgeon. It’s that simple. If you have pain in your fingers, hand, wrist, forearm or elbow you should consult a board certified hand surgeon.
What can I expect from a hand surgeon?
You can expect an evaluation of your condition which may include a physical exam and diagnostic testing such as Xray or MRI. Should you need treatment, conservative treatment would be the first step. Not every visit to a hand surgeon results in hand surgery. Hand surgeons often recommend non-surgical treatment options to assist you. You may be referred to a hand therapist for collaborative treatment.
