"I was rather hesitant to have a knee replacement after all these years of pain.
Dr Patel said this was a difficult surgery, but he was up to the challenge and that he was!
Dr Patel gained my confidence in him as he listened to my

"Dr Patel explains everything, looks at your x-rays and points out what you need to know. He's been taking care of my knee for years, and between us (him mostly) I have avoided the evil knee replacement. I know it's coming, but with Dr Patel I'm not scared anymore. See him if you have knee issues, you will not regret it!"
