Terrible experience

Went to have my knees regenerated,my left knee was marginal but functional,my knee swelled and he withdrew fluid,happened at least 3 times,when the swelling finally subsided my knee was completely worthless,and I was forced into having a knee replacement.I thought there was no downside to having a stem cell procedure,I was totally wrong.

Dr. Buford has excellent communication skills and is willing to try alternative treatments too. I am excited to use my own body (plasma) to repair my knee!

This doctor spends more time trolling his competition that he does worrying about his patients.

Dr Don is obsessed with trashing his competition. How could anyone trust a paranoid doctor like this. Due get a life and concentrate on your patients vs your profits and obsession with doctor more successful than you.
