“I would like to thank you for your special expertise, great kindness and alacrity that you gave to my “two knees” and their replacements!! My entire experience with this seeming debacle was one of trust and appreciative understanding of your prowess and empathy to my situation and I am very grateful. Also, your entire staff, especially Amanda, who was so willing and thoughtful to help in any way, was wonderful.”
