Not well. Still in recovery. Terrible after care.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had what was termed a minor meniscus repair or "clean up" with Dr. King last March. At follow up, my husband and I were very specific as to questions regarding when I could resume normal activity, begin to walk, etc. The response was cryptic, vague and less than satisfactory despite several attempts. Prior to this and during the first couple of weeks post surgery I called as my knee was hot, red, very swollen and painful. I was told curtly by the assistant Laurel that all of this was normal. Three weeks post surgery I was in more pain than prior. I was then diagnosed with a rare complication called osteonecrosis of the knee. The treatment told to me by Dr. Kind was to be on crutches for six months, no physical therapy, and sent me home to come back in three months. His assistant Laurel had a cold bedside manner during my follow up visit, which was a huge contrast from prior to surgery when she was engaging and warm regarding setting up my surgery. Needless to say, I do not recommend this surgeon. Many of my friends are doctors, trainers, etc and told me that I would completely atrophy if I did nothing. I am used to hard exercise daily and loved hiking, biking, and all kinds of activity. I am seeing another doctor who is more comprehensive, recommended Physical Therapy and also actually did treatment. My son had a surgery with Dr. King at age 12 and it was successful. From my humble assessment and all the photos on Dr. King's wall of young people I would say that he is good at repairing young persons knees but not so great with more well used knees, terrible at follow up and after care and never once have I received a follow up call to see how I am doing. In fact, this has changed my life and not for the better. I am still disabled, after 7 months and wish I would not have let Dr. King near my knee. These past months when I have been out and about hobbling on my crutches several people have come up to me, asked what happened, all over 4o or 50 and guess what, they told me that they had Dr. King and that he botched their surgery and no follow up, and that they all went somewhere else.

She is fabulous.  She is a great doctor and she listens.  She always gives good advice and good information.  She always follows up your test results.  She sends me on line advice and emails.  She gives me an update also and options.  She gives a lot of information which is great.  She is the best.
