Patient Comments (1)
in Twin Falls, ID |
Dr. Retmier has done numerous surgeries for me. I have degenerative disk/joint disease. I now have four artificial joints and Dr. R put in three of them (1 Knee, 2 hips) My other knee was done at U of U in 1990. In 2005, Dr. R rebuilt that knee. He is an outstanding and talented surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone who needed his help. He is caring, understanding and kind. Obviously, I trust him implicitly. He is not quick to do surgery. He is very good at explaining what will be done.
