Dr. Day gave me my life back when she replaced my two worn out hips and two worn out knees when other doctors would not do it for me because of complications. I was a very complicated case but she make sure that I have the correct medical care I deserved. I cannot thank her enough! Thank you Doctor day

Dr. Day replaced both of my knees over 10 years ago. I was delighted to feel so much better, sorry that I waited so long, and grateful that there have been no knee problems since. Her kindness and directness impressed me, from the way she focused directly on me at my first appointment to her kind manner toward me just before surgery. The second time was even better. She made certain adjustments in both surgery and rehab. My recovery was easier. I continue to recommend her.

I had both knees replaced in the fall of 2006, one on a Wednesday and one on the following Friday. It changed my world. Zero problems since. Great doctor.

My experience with Dr.Day is her and her staff will tell you what they think you should hear but don't listen.I let this Doctor talk me into getting BOTH knees replaced at the same time...I kept complaining about my left knee and they would not listen..Her response was its the way your walking.. Yeah because YOU made me walk this way..after 4 long years if pain and falling I was referred to a new surgeon who removed the old replacement that was loose and put a new one in and what a difference.
