had a knee replacement and found his followup visits to be less than ideal. Downplayed the challenges I've been facing as a result of his surgery.

Just not happy

Went to see him for pain and weakness after knee replacement, saw him 3 times, he couldn't see anything wrong on x-rays, so he said there was nothing else he could do. After seeing another Dr, I found out the knee was loose and slipping just like I told Dr Specht.
