Dr Verner preformed two knee replacements for me, two years apart . Both surgeries were successful. His office staff and the hospital staff are professional, efficient and caring.

I had a hip replacement and was back to work in 4 weeks. Dr. Verner is an excellent doctor. His anterior hip replacement is incredible, only a 3.5 inch incision. His office staff is awesome, never had to wait, very efficient.
