We had a very professional and delightful experience today as we met Dr. Booth and his wonderful staff for the first time to speak about having double knee replacements. They were all extremely knowledgeable and informative, very friendly and down to earth. We left feeling both confident and relieved knowing we would be in good hands for upcoming surgery and recuperation procedures. We also saw first hand how the front desk staff went out of their way to help someone who was distressed.

Dr. Booth is the absolute best knee surgeon. I have recommended him to many of my friends and acquaintances. I have taken my father to him for a bilateral knee replacement. I wouldn't trust any other surgeon with my elderly father. Dr. Booth called the evening before my surgery which was a double knee replacement After surgery I was in the hospital one day and then transferred to the Moss rehab unit right in Aria Bucks. The whole experience could not have gone better. He is the best.

Six years since my knee surgery. Had both done at the same time. Best thing I could have done to improve my lifestyle. Have recommended two of my friends to Dr. Booth. Dr. Booth and his staff were fantastic. Have had no problems with my new knees.

First of all I had my left knee replaced by Dr Booth on Aug.2, 2016. He started by calling me the night before. It made me feel just as though he really cared about me. He is the absolute best Doctor..His team is wonderful The Physican Assistants there always got back to me promptly when I called. They were all so very helpful and kind. I couldn't have done it without them. If you want the best of the best go to this man. I will always be grateful to him and his staff. God bless them all!!

Dr. Booth has given me a new life and my family and I are so thankful. I've recently had both of my knees replaced and returned to work. He's such a caring person and motivator. His positive attitude has made me succeed in my rehabilitation. God Bless You my hero. David Sanchez

Awesome.........the very best! Dr. Booth sincerely cares about his patients!
in Bensalem, PA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Booth as he took on a more difficult bilateral knee replacement. My right knee was a redo as it was loose and misaligned (only two years old). The left knee needed to be replaced as well. Three days post op, my right petella tendon partially tore and back into surgery I went. Dr. Booth did a fine job saving my R knee as he used wiring to reattach the tendon as it heals. It has been over three months and I still have quite a lot of healing to go, but he saved it.

Cannot be trusted.

Dr. Booth pretends to care about his patients every one of the patients that he works on is strictly a number a dollar sign he gets paid for every knee that he replaces he promised that he would help me should I have any problems I called 29x his office didn't even have the decency to call me back once my father had an extremely hard time with his knee replacement ..dr Booth spent 17 minutes in surgery with my dads knee...he called me after saying he was fine and that was it.heed my word stay aw
in Philadelphia, PA |
This is the most pompous man I have ever met. He treated everyone that worked with him with absolute disrespect. He talked badly about EVERYONE, sometimes right in front of them. If I had met Dr. Booth before the day of my father's knee operation I would have told my father to go anywhere else.

He is extremely knowledgeable and the entire office staff is there for you at any given moment.
