Delays run about 45 - 50 minutes. One was 1.5 hours. Doctor fails to thorough listen and thus prescribed meds that I am allergic to. Brief moments of kindness but an mostly arrogant surgeon.

Dr Guy Guilfoy performed a TKR for me two years ago. I did a lot of research and his experience and honesty had me settle on him doing my surgery. I was walking without assistance in a week and now I'm climbing mountains and backpacking pain free. Before surgery I could barely walk. My recovery went smoothly and his pain med protocol worked magnificently. He's doing my 2nd knee next year and I have no worries. For me the recovery was easy. I climbed Mt Ralston 4 months after surgery and completed a 30 mile Sierra Backpacking trip 8 months after surgery.

I don't have many health problems so I rarely need specialty care. I broke my ankle while hiking on a Sunday. I called my internist, Dr. Robert Debruin, and texted copies of the urgent care xrays to him. He arranged for me to see Dr. Guilfoy on Monday morning. Dr. Guilfoy explained the complexity of my fracture and the need for plates and screws to correct the two broken bones. I had surgery on Friday at Folsom Surgery Center. The anesthesiologist, Dr. Brown, did a great job, as did the rest of the surgery center staff. I am now out of my cast and learning to walk again. The wounds are healing nicely, I appreciate Dr. Guilfoy's expertise immensely.
