Thank you Dr. Bray!

I feel so fortunate to be Dr. Bray’s patient. He gave me the most current information on my condition so I was able to make an informed decision on whether to have surgery on my knee. He genuinely cares about my pain level and has given me a number of options to gain relief. I trust him and feel confident that he has my best interests at heart. Thank you, Dr. Bray!
