I felt Dr. K. was concerned about me from the first time I met him; he was glad that I preferred a conservative approach to my arthritic knees, and was supportive of the strength training I was doing, with a local trainer. When eventually my left knee left us with no options, I had seen him enough times to trust he was the right doctor for the TKR. He insisted I be faithful to my post-op PT, at home and outpatient, and I credit his emphasis on that with my keeping PT a priority. He's the best
