Patient Comments (3)
West Des Moines, IA |
Dr. Tewes was thorough in diagnosing my knee pain. He recommended specific treatment and potential surgery individually, rather than all out knee replacement. Contrary to some facilities where you feel like you are on an assembly line, he took the time to educate me on the causes and all alternatives. He knows his stuff and has an excellent rapport.

Dr. Tewes is the absolute best. He has helped me tremendously in many different cases and he's a genius. He is quick to find a solution and quick to act on the solution. If you ever need any sort of sports related injury advice or procedures he is your man!
