    Dr. Ireland is a fantastic surgeon who is equally knowledgeable and friendly. She always goes above and beyond with her professionalism and her bedside manner. She tells it like it is in a courteous and respectful way. I can tell she really cares about her patients - probably because she is a great athlete herself and understands not only the physical aspects, but also the mental aspects of what her patients are going through. Dr. Ireland is a top-notch doctor. UK is fortunate to have her. Others should learn from her.

      Concern or worries: seemed to simply be pleased that I was better after the surgery even though to me, my expectations of how I would rehab was different than my current level of functioning. Decision Making; This is really N/A since this is post op. Discussion of proposed treatments: She really just ran through the same options for other treatments that I had already heard Likelihood of recommending: I know her surgical skills are quite good, so sure I probably would recommend her.
