Review for Dr. Register

Excellent, caring doctor! He did a total knee replacement 4 days ago and my recovery is incredible. Very manageable pain. Leg bends easily. Can’t say enough good things about this wonderful doctor.

Elizabeth Milner Dec 04 2021

Review for Dr. Manfredi

Very professional and thorough. Does not rush through visit and takes time to explain everything well. A little bit of wait time to see him, but well worth it. I felt he really cared about my health and wellness. The office staff are all wonderful and a pleasure to work with.

Sandra Ash Dec 04 2021

Review for Dr. Ashford

Dr.Florence replaced my hip. This was my second replacement and this one was much more conducive to healing and recovery. Dr. Florence has a patient friendly process that helps the process move smoothly.
