Dr. Sweet has replaced both of my knees over the past 3 years. I am completely satisfied and certainly rate him as a five star doctor.

Dr. Sweet was quick to assess the problem, efficiently explained it, answered my questions, and provided valuable options available for treating and managing. He was very thorough and pleasant to converse with. The staff were friendly and top notch. I was in and out in a flash. Previously seeing my husband through two extremely successful knee replacements, I wouldn’t trust mine to anyone else. He has a gift for knowing what works best and is an expert in his field.
