What People Say About Us!

Super great, caring surgeon. I had both my knees replaced and he was great through the whole process. He explained what to expect , and emphasized once surgery was done I had to do my part and do all the rehab excersizes diligently or it would all be for nothing. I did and have excellent flexibility. It's been years ago now and I'm so grateful I chose him.
