Patient Comments (2)
East Lansing, MI |
Dr. Taunt is very nice. He got my husband in very quickly. He was very confident that he needed surgery and it couldn't wait when another week. We talked to 3 other orthopedics and all of them said surgery wasn't necessary and it didn't need to be so rushed. We didn't get the surgery done and it worked out and we didn't but have to spend tons of money.
in Chesaning, MI |
Had both knees replaced, 8 weeks apart. Never experienced any significant pain. Was off prescribed pain medication within the first week, some use of Tylenol thereafter. Excellent experience, both pre op and post op. Feel years younger and healthier. Dr. Taunt and team are the of the best caliber a patient could hope for!!
