I just really liked his straight forward attitude with my procedures. He's operated on me twice. Both my knees. He's easy to understand and I didn't feel intimidated to ask questions.

Dr. Sutherland seems to be a master in his profession. Had a very successful knee replacement . He is very relaxed. Technically focused. Not the fastest to warm up to. But very dedicated !!
