I went to see Dr. Curtis because I've dealt with knee pain for over 10 yrs. and have come to my breaking point.

Been his patient for years. He took care of my carpal tunnel surgery and replaced both of my knees. He's an excellent doctor and always takes time to explain everything. He takes good care of me and will take care of you too.
