Dr. Pinkowski did my total knee replacement just four months ago. I feel great! I did 3 months of rehab and am now doing water Zumba three days a week. His bed side manner is wonderful. He doesn't force you to have surgery he tells you that when you are ready you will come to him. I really liked that about him. Great Doctor would recommend him highly.
