Over the past few years, my right knee was deteriorating from Osteo-Arthritis. Two years ago I began seeing Dr. Christie Heikes for knee injections. Her Physician Assistant, Katie, coached and comforted me through all of the injections. Dr, Heikes listened to me attentively, provided me with a total knee replacement when I was ready, visited me in the hospital more than once, honored all of my wishes, and restored full use of my knee! I will soon be using her for my other knee! ~Jeanie Fredlund
