Patient Reviews (1)
in Decatur, IL |
It has been nearly 4 years since I've had both knees replaced. 1 in May of 2013 and the other in October 2013. I cannot say enough good things about the Doctor and the staff. I didn't know I could write a review, or I would have done it sooner. This procedure was a life changing experience for me. I was in such bad shape, I wouldn't want to walk any distance. Since, I walk 30 - 60 minutes a day, NO PAIN. I've lost weight by becomming mobile again and am so pleased with everything.
