Patient Comments (1)
Munster, IN |
Excellent doctor who isn't knife happy, takes a conservative approach first to try and help. He has helped me put off knee replacement surgery for 10 years with injections and I love him for that! I'm way to young to have surgery and would still like to wait 5 years or so until I'm in my 60's.
