Selecting The Best Surgeon
My previous MDVIP physician, Dr. William Lee, recommended further evaluation of the loss of mobility due to my knees. During the knee condition evaluation period, Dr. Lee retired and Dr. Scott Hoffman became my primary physician. My knee condition evaluation was completed and complete replacement was recommended due to bone-on-bone contact in both knees. The surgeon originally assigned was not recommended for the knee surgery by a former associate. Dr. Hoffman worked closely with Dr. Lee to correct the situation with the assignment of a well qualified surgeon that was acceptable to all parties involved. The first knee surgery (right knee) was completed successfully and the recovery process is proceeding well. The left knee surgery will be scheduled for later this year. Thanks to Dr. Hoffman with the assistance of Dr. Lee for the prompt response to my concern.
