He replaced my knees - did a wonderful job and has followed up thoroughly and often.
in Albuquerque, NM |
My experiences with Dr. Junick have been terrific. He did two total knee replacements for me and he did a terrific job both times. I would be in a wheel chair if it wasn't for him. After less than one year out of the last surgery, I can walk two miles on the beach--and I LOVE IT! Dr. Junick is personable and friendly and so is his staff.
