I highly recommend Orthopaedic Surgeon, Janak R Talwalkar, MD and his staff. Dr. Talwalkar is knowledgeable, professional, kind and caring. He takes the necessary time to properly evaluate and treat, so you don't feel rushed. I plan to see Dr. Talwalkar for all future injuries and orthopedic problems. I'm so thankful my rheumatologist, Kelly Cole MD, referred me to him.

Dr. Talwalker provides both professional and personal care. I have been a patient for many years and for different ailments. From minor injuries to one major surgery, he has provided the upmost care. His explanation of injuries, treatment options, recovery and emotional support overwhelmed me. Even though he is no longer in Danville, I will return to Dr. Talwalker's practice in Lexington, KY
