Dr King did my knee surgery in 2007. Did a great job. I was coming from Knoxville Tn. He saw me when no orher docs in Knoxville wouldn't because of Tencare. He felt that if someone needs to get something fixed, then just do it instead of giving people the run around. I really liked him and his staff. Its 2017 now and i still remember how well everything went.
