Hi, Dr. King this is Erica Alexander. I appreciate what you did for me. But I went to my doctor & the hospital at least 6:7 times during these past 3 months & the hospital told me to go see my regular doctor which is Walters. At the hospital all they do is give me shots & meds that don't work. When I go to my regular dr. he does the same & say next time we're gonna take an xray but never do it they keep saying I pulled a muscle !

He's smart, thoughtful, and deeply cares about the success and health of his patients. He takes the time to explain things in detail.

Dr. King is the best orthopedic surgeon I could have ever asked for. He made sure that my scar wouldn't be visible or obscure. He tends to speak into his recorder often, but he takes notes on all his cases (for future reference). He doesn't give you detailed explanation--it's more of a you're doing good, I want to see you back in a year. However, he did an awesome job. I'd trust my spine in his hands any day. However, the office visits are extremely long.
