This Dr. has been such a blessing. A Class Act. Kind, professional, attentive when I ask questions and thorough. His office staff are the BEST. I just love them. Alexa is so sweet. I actually look forward to my appointments because I know I'm in good hands.

I have been with Dr. K since May of 2000. Rt. knee meniscus tear, orthoscopic repair. 2002 left knee meniscus repair, 2006 right knee repair, 2013 right TKR. I trust him with my care and he has proven to me that his patients are important. He is dedicated, smart, funny, caring and a "NO NONSENSE" kind of doctor that is respected in the office, in the hospital and in life. From injections to surgery he is the best. I have referred a few close friends to him. (I try to keep him a secret!) BEST!!

I the last 25 years I have had 17 joint surgeries due to many old an current sport injuries ( these include knees, shoulders, elbows and wrists. I have been very pleased with Dr Krinsky and everything he has done for me. I am walking and still playing some sports. I am able to have fun with my grand kids on their sport court thanks to all my joint surgeries that Dr Krinsky performed-----He has kept me going. Thank you Dr Krinsky.
