Thanks to Dr. Kindsfater I am able to move again. He did both of my knee replacements and I can now ride a bike again. He listen to not only my concerns but my husbands as well. Because he did such an excellent job on me, my husband went to him for his hip replacement. Again, my husband is doing great. Thanks again to you and your staff.

Excellent Doctor but spends very little time with you. He doesn't even come out to talk to the family after surgery. He has someone call them
