Dr. Mills is exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone
They are very professional and attentive. I was having shoulder pain. The wait was short and staff very kind.
Dr. David R. Mack replaced my right hip in June 2009, and my left in October 2010. I am already able to go places and do things on my own again.

For the first time in many years and many knee operations on one leg I am without any knee pain. This is a result of a procedure performed by Dr. Patel.
