Patient Comments (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....more
