Dear Mr. Robert P, I am sorry you found your experience dissatisfying. As your surgery was performed by another surgeon, I was consulted as the orthopedist on call for your knee cellulitis. I examined your knee thoroughly and explained the situation to you and treated you with antibiotics. CT scan is not indicated for a cellulitis diagnosis, especially in the presence of knee replacement as in your case. You gave a poor review of my office & staff, despite you were not seen in my office.
