Phil Howden

The clinic is beautiful and spotless. The receptionists are always very welcoming and do everything they can to accommodate you and your schedule. The care I receive from the surgeon, physiotherapist and staff was exceptional with my first knee reconstruction. I even went back and got my other knee reconstruction here as well. I recommend this surgery above any other.
