Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego,CA |
Dr. Hacker has seen me as a patient for a few years due to issues with my left knee. I opted for injections for awhile but had to have knee scoped last July and then ultimately had to have a partial replacement in Dec 2016. Doctor Hacker is professional , personable, explains in detail why he feels each procedure is necessary and has been so accurate with what to expect. One of the most amazing talents Dr.Hacker has is his abilty to leave minimal scaring. Would never go to anyone else!
