I like the way Dr Topping talks you through the procedure (in my case a knee replacement), explaining each step plus what to expect before ,during and after, and makes it easier to make the decisions that must be made. Time is taken to answer all questions. I recommend him.

Dr. Topping is a very good Dr. I had a hip replacement three years ago and have had absolutely no problems since. I'm having problems with the other hip now and wouldn't go any where else.
