I could not have expected more from a medical provider. I had a knee injury that was preventing me from training for an upcoming marathon. Now, I am just a normal runner that was preparing for a bucket-list event -- nothing significant to anyone but me. Dr. Papendick and his staff went beyond anything I could have expected. They scheduled my surgery within a week. I was jogging again in 7 days. I completed my marathon 30 days later. I've had no reoccurring pain for more than 2 years.
