Patient Comments (2)

I had an amazing experience with my total knee replacement by Dr. Plaster. The entire experience was well organized, efficient and friendly. Appointments were right on time. My pain level was so low that it was controlled by OTC pills and I used no opioids. He does not use the "torture machine"....more
