Review for Dr. Mark Gitau, MD

He worked with my brother and father on their knees. He did an exceptional job with precise accuracy that lead to their recovery times being less than anticipated.

Review for Dr. Kevin Dahl, MD

Dr. Dahl has an immature mind that is stuck in the ego. instead of telling the patient he "does not know", he tells them it is not his job to know. I was not or ever will be his patient. My loved one was in the hospital under his care? I guess that is what he would call it.
