in Saunderstown, RI |
Stay away. got infected with both knees, surgery failed and have to have surgery again to correct what he did. I was told by several top doctors the surgery he did was antiquated.
in Westminster, MA |
Dr Minas was the third doctor I had seem about my knee. He immediately put me at ease, took the time to explain all my . He listened to my concerns and then explained why he felt one course of treatment was better suited to my situation than another. He really took the time to listen to me as a patient and a person. I could not have made a better chose of surgeons for my knee.
in Boston, MA |
While specific information about how the arthroplasty would be performed and what the post-op experience would be like was hard to glean at the pre-op stage, Dr Minas showed a confidence and professionalism that made me feel quite at ease that I was making the right decision at the right time in my life.
