I had total knee replacement July 2021 . The procedure went very well and easy. Dr King takes the time to talk and explain everything to you. The staff at the surgical center was great and very caring . I would definitely recommend Dr. King !!

Review for Dr. King

Seemly gruff at the outset as he’s direst and to the point. He is compassionate though and very thorough in advising you on your physical issues. He has a great smile, if you can get him to smile. This guy is one of the best in his field in my opinion

Review for Dr. Chartier

I was so nervous first time but Dr Burke being so nice I was able to relax. She really listened to my concerns and I feel she's a very caring Doctor. I wish my insurance prescribed her to me years ago. I highly recommend Dr Burke.

Review for Dr. Burke

He deliberately caused further harm to me with the speculum. It was slow and deliberate, not negligent.
