Dr.Phillips is an excellent surgeon. I have always heard good things about him. He did an excellent job on my knee. within 3 weeks I can see the difference already. I will be having my other knee done in May. He is the only one I would let do my surgery. Excellent!!

On a recent visit to New York I fell broke my hip. Dr. Phillips operated on me and did a FANTASTIC job. I was in rehab facility for two weeks and after a check up with Dr. Phillips I was allowed to come home to VIRGINIA. Would highly recommend him for surgery. Thank you Dr. Phillips.
