Completed partial knee replacement Dr Sutherland was open, direct and patient business like and you can tell he likes what he does. Meet more With his PA Brian Thorpe. He is the best - listens, kind, funny, and trustworthy. I did not have good experience at tattnall. No communication about Surgery delay and evening staff was slow in responding to pain etc
