"Dear Dr. Dave, Just a quick note to thank you for assisting with my knee replacement.  After your wonderful care for the past 12 years, I was just so appreciative to see your smiling face prior to going to the O.R. that morning.  Tom and I knew from the beginning that you didn’t do the replacements, but you kept your word when you told me you’d do your best to help the surgeon.  Dr. Gesell was a great recommendation…thank you for that as well.  I feel like I’ve gotten the best of both worlds…two great surgeons and functional results!  Now I have two surgeons to walk me into the future (one I consider a dear friend). Thank you again."  - Carrie M.
