Patient Comments (6)

Excellent! Dr Race did my hip replacement and within about 4 days I had gone from a walker to a cane to walking without any aid. I was released from therapy within 4 visits and within 11 days I can not believe how great I feel! I highly recommend Dr Race! The entire Joint Staff are fantastic!
