Terry's new knee

Dr. Sambas gave me a full knee replacement and I am so very pleased with my recovery and the result. He had me do physical therapy before the surgery and my recovery was easier that anyone I know who had the same surgery. The Physical Therapy staff is outstanding!

great experience

Dr Symbas, Kelly, Victoria, and honestly everyone who works there have nothing but smiles for their patients. They are always so happy! Not to mention, there is barely ever a wait longer than 5 minutes and everyone takes their time to answer all your questions, of which i always have many. My A/C joint surgery - which i was never pressured into - could not have gone smoother and Im 2 months post op right now. Kelly and Dr Sambas both have seen me post op and Victoria was the most helpful surgery scheduler ever. Not to mention i would up paying zero dollars out of pocket, so she is definitely a special angel in my book. And Obamacare didn't hurt the process either :)All and all, it was one of the best experiences with a doctors office - and surgical procedure - Ive ever had. Kudos to everyone involved and thanks for the newly functional shoulder!
