“Dr. Lourie, My wife Debbie and I want to convey a sincere thank you for your care and professionalism following both of my carpal tunnel surgeries performed over the past several months. I could not be more pleased with the outcomes; having full use of both my hands and being able to actually sleep at night has restored my quality of life. We also want to recognize and complement your entire staff. They have all been extremely professional and supportive every step of the way. This includes in the office Brittany, Ashley, Allie, Connie, and everyone at the reception desk, the surgical team of Cindy, Vickie, Trey, Elizabeth Ann, and Leslie, and Elisa handling the physical therapy follow ups. All of you are the best...thank you, thank you and thank you!”
