I have to say it was the most efficient and effective office operation I've ever seen: took me right on time, technician took x-rays in 4 minutes right in their office suite, then led me to his exam room where the x-rays had already been transmitted and displayed on the screen, and then the doc saw me within 2 minutes... ten minutes later, I felt fully informed and with a game plan.. super impressive. End to end, it was less than 30 minutes...

Oh my gosh I can only say one thing here. He is the best of the best. I had both my knee's done at the same time. I was in my late 70's. I am 80 now. I spent 2 (maybe less) in rehab right there at the hospital. Had a PT in my home for 2 weeks. I was out and about in less then 3 weeks. Today my knee's are still going strong. Can I say I love Dr. Petersilge. Well I do. :)

I had a wonderful experience with a full knee replacement at Ahuja. I was so pleased with both Dr. Petersilge and his office - they were very responsive. I was also pleased with the wonderful care I received at Ahuja.
