sister to curtis jones

called Dr. Shenkman and they had no record of my brothers surgery, he's in Winter haven in rehab and after a week they want to send him home. The lady at the Dr. office was rude to me and said I wasn' t on his hipa form but she couldn't find Curtis sugery either. To bad the Dr's don't know what kind od crappy staff they have in the front office. Day labor....

Dr Shenkman know knees!

Dr Shenkman has been my Ortho Surgeon for 10 years. He takes the time to explain and discuss. I have had 3 knee surgeries by him. Two meniscus repairs for both I was up and active in a few days. And a Total Knee Replacement which I was up walking unassisted in 5 days, riding a stationary bike in 7. My knee has not felt this good in over 30 years,
