Dr Rosa and his office staff are fantastic. For years I had extreme knee pain and could hardly walk. I had knee replacement surgery 3 weeks ago. I am now up and walking with very little discomfort. I would recommend Dr Rosa to everyone.

I finally decided after 10 yrs of going back and forth to have knee replacement surgery. Let me just say I wish I had it sooner. It's been 2 months since the surgery and no more pain from arthritis and I'm on the road to recovery thanks to Dr Rosa and his team I'm getting back my quality of life!
