Dr. King and his Team are are an extremely skilled and compassionate group of medical professionals. I've had three joint replacements done by them (one hip in 2005 and and both knees (2018 and 2019). They quickly and effectively addressed any questions and/or concerns I had. I followed their protocols for pain management and PT and have had excellent results. I can now golf without knee pain and without having to wear a knee brace. 5 stars aren't enough to describe how great they are!

I had visited a couple of surgeons before opting for Dr. King and it was the best move ever. I was so impressed with the whole team he has, front and back office, nurses, PT's and the surgical team. I was up and around the same day. No extra pain meds needed. I was very informed during the whole process. Thank you so much everyone.

I was in a lot of pain in both of my knees since I no longer had any cartilage left. I had several cortizone shots and a series of 3 shots that were supposed to give me some relief. My Dr. at the time wanted me to wait 10 years to get replacements. People, even strangers saw that I was having a hard time walking and getting by day to day. Several people mentioned Dr. King to me. My husband and I set up an appointment to meet with him. After speaking with him both of us walked out of his office and knew he was going to be the one to give me new knees. I had me right knee replaced in 2017 and just had my left replaced in January 2019. Both experiences were great for me. The staff was good and helpful, the PT (in home and out patient) was great, and being able to come home right after surgery was the best recovery I could have had. I am so happy with the outcome so far and that I am relieved of the constant pain I was in. I have and would definitely recommend Dr. King to others.

I had a knee replacement performed by Dr. King. The experience has been amazing. Dr. King and his entire staff took all the time needed to explain everything and answer all my questions. His protocol of performing as an outpatient meant I was in my own bed the same day which was great. Working with the CPM machine has given me amazing early results. Absolutely recommend him.

Dr. King once again came through as I knew he would...Another new hip and 3 weeks later new knee on the same side. No pain to speak of. Amazing, kind and super bed side manner. He totally is not a drug doc. Never needed pain meds for either surgery going home.

Dr. King replaced my knee joint 11/17. He's a master craftsman. I'm grateful that my sister told me about him. I can't imagine that there could be a better surgeon around. Thanks Dr. King

I had bilateral total knee replacements on July 18 2012 (both at the same time) I was downhill skiing in 5 and a half months. Dr. King and his entire office were wonderful. They don't sugarcoat the truth. He gave me the information I needed to make all my decisions and then worked with me on my goals and expectations. I wish I hadn't waited so long to do this. It was life changing. I am almost 60 now and more active than I was at 50. Thank you Dr. King and Team -Jean S

Dr King did both my knees 4 weeks apart. I came home the same day, with very little pain. I went from not being able to walk from room to room without horrible pain. My knees were very arthritic bone on bone, they were both completely worn out. I am now walking 3 miles a day NO PAIN. I'm a new person thanks to Dr King. I would definitely recommend Dr King he's the best.

My experience with Dr King was horrible. I had day surgery for a total knee replacement because I was having a hard time with stairs. Now 5 months later, I cry daily because of the pain I am in. I have been left with my leg .5 longer and the thoughts are it is misaligned. I also now have a herniated disk in my back that I did not have before. Dr King said as far as he was concerned the surgery was a success and put me in the care of a physiatrist. Horrible bed side manner and just doesnt car
