Dr Degenfelder performed bilateral knee replacement surgery on me June 2017. He did an outstanding job! From my first visit he really listened and took the time to answer all my questions. His staff is efficient and so friendly and helpful. I just can’t thank them enough!

Dr. Degenfelder is knowledgeable in his field, conveys treatment options clearly and concisely, and communicated well with me. Though I had to get x-rays before the scheduled visit, I did not have a long wait to see him.
