Very honest regarding surgery and risk, very thorough in his explanation of the necessary pre surgery protocol ( how to prepare) and PA was helpful in post op visit with what to expect in the healing process. Very grateful to Dr. Verner and his staff for assisting me in regaining quality of life in restoring mobility and independence.

Dr. Verner answered all my questions. My knee replacement surgery went very well and was followed by therapy with the X-10 machine. My outpatient PT was surprised at how well I was doing 2 weeks after surgery. My scar healed very well with no special care. He uses a waterproof bandaid that allowed me to shower. My experirnce was very positive. I would highly recommend Dr. Verner.
