A. Dpain-free

For the first time in ten years I don't have pain in my knee.

D. Nkind and patient

As always your kindness and patience astounds me. It's a good thing you are so calm and grounded so you can keep me from totally freaking out.

D.BThank you for all you have done for me

I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for me. I am sure I have said it to you in person, but I just wanted you to know that I thank God that I found a doctor that could help me with my knee. It is hard to find a good doctor in these days and times. I just want you to know by one of your patients that you are truly appreciated for what you do and the care that you give.

S.LNo pain!

Happy new year to you! Thank you for the best Christmas present I have ever received! No Pain!!!!!

K.PYour expertise is unparalleled!

The upside of my bad knee is that I had the opportunity to meet you, your expertise is unparalleled and your patient care is above anything that "thank you" would cover. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all you have done.

J.MThank you again!

I want to thank you again for the time you spent with me. I really felt as though you have a heart and never felt that you were trying to sell me a surgery.
