I think Dr Seet is the best there is. He has excellent bedside manners as well as being a great surgeon.

I felt totally in charge of deciding when I was ready for surgery. . He explained the procedure to me so I understood what to expect. I believe him to be a very skilled surgeon. His PA, Kate Hamilton has been so helpful to me in the years that I have struggled with knee pain, I was ready!

Super nice and straight forward. Surgery is LAST option instead of first option.

Thanks to Dr. Sweet and his team, I am now pain-free after having both of my knees replaced. I experienced zero complications after both surgeries and received excellent care.

I had a great experience both with my knee surgery and his staff. Lots of compliments on how good and minimal my incision is! Only complaint is wait time in follow office visits. Minimal time was 45 min. Dr Sweet answered thoroughly any and all questions I had
