Des Moines, IA |
Seeing Dr Vittetoe was best thing I ever did. I had lived for 10 years in extreme pain in my knees. No other doctor would even consider replacing my knees because of my age. Last year I had bi-lateral knee replacements done by Dr V. I haven't felt this good in so long. I am so much happier and my life is 300 times better. He is awesome and so kind!
Thank you for taking the time to comment. We believe he is top-notch as well!
