in port charlotte , fl |
Dr. terek operated on me in 2007. It was my 50th operation. A total right hip was installed. Today 5/25/17, still not an ache or pain in that hip. I have now moved to southwest florida. I hope dr. reese can do as good a job as Dr. Terek. I am having my left hip replaced. Dr. Terek is an excellent surgeon. If you can make it to his office, you be in great hands. Great surgeon.
