The doctor was very short w/me. I mentioned a pain behind my knee then mentioned pain in the area where my ankle bands and he curtly said "I thought your pain was in your knee". I said it is but it is other places also.

All Good visits no bad visits.

Although this is the first time that I saw this provider, I left feeling comfortable with my upcoming knee replacement by him.

The Bone and Joint center is extremely well run. I have confidence not only in my surgeon, but in the entire staff.

overall liked how I was treated for the most part the nurse practitioner and the doctor we're somewhat hurried and it was noticeable. it tends to not allow the patient the time to really voice concerns or give explanations to health issues.
