    Dr, Curtis replaced my left shoulder Apr 2010; He then replaced my left knee Dec 2015 and my wife's right knee Mar 2016. Unfortunately, he doesn't do hips so I had to go elsewhere for that surgery Sep 2011. Bottom line, he has a "Best in the City" reputation. We wouldn't even think of using someone else.

    Patient care after surgery is TERRIBLE. He has rescheduled every post-op appointment I have had (4 so far), and you can't get another appointment for a minimum of two weeks. This is a huge problem when you are post-op and are waiting for clearance to return to activities such as driving and start PT. I had to start my PT 4 weeks later than I should have and stayed in sling for 4 extra wks. When I asked to speak to Dr. Curtis regarding these concerns on two occasions, his coordinator refused.
