Dr Booker did my total knee replacement last year, and will be doing my other one in a couple of weeks. I like the fact that he uses glue and internal stitches, which makes for less scarring. He has excellent bed side manner, and is kind and compassionate. He's always apologetic when he runs over my scheduled appointment time. I'd highly recommend him!

Dr Booker is an excellent surgeon, I would definitely recommend him to family or friends. He listens to what the patient is telling him, and I really appreciate a physician who actually LISTENS. He repaired my torn bicep, cleaned up some bursitis in my shoulder, and performed a carpal tunnel repair. I consider him top notch in his field... GREAT ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON!
