I called for an appointment @8:40am and got in at 11:00 the same day. I arrived and in no time was take. back for X-rays of my knee. Those are very crucial for visit. X ray technician was polite and concern about the pain and discomfort and she took her time to explain and is very patient is positioning and taking adequate films. 10 minutes after, I was taken to my room for updated history and within 5 minutes, Dr. Hooks came in. He of course is very polite and gentle. He explained everything and then perform the procedure of aspiration and injection. Which of course is much needed. My pain diminished before I left the office.
