Outstanding doctor

Dr. Gilbert and his staff are very patient oriented. I had my right knee replaced in September 2010. Prior to my surgery he discussed everything with me as what to expect after the operation. Thanks to Dr. Gilbert, I was able to play tennis in five and a half months. I had such good results with my right knee I had him replace the left knee January 2012. The recovery time for the second knee replacement was shorter than the first. Thanks again to Dr. Gilbert and TOA I am back on the courts enjoying tennis again.

Dr. Gilbert is AWESOME

I went to several orthopaedic doctors prior to Dr. Gilbert over a 2-year period. Everybody said I had back problems from just being old and worn out. Dr. Gilbert came in to see me the first time with a copy of my x-rays and said “here is your problem right here, and it can be fixed.” Less than 30 days later I have a new left hip and 3 months later, a new right hip. I am 70 years old and came BACK TO WORK FULL TIME in 5 weeks after surgery. My life has changed completely. I can shop with my granddaughter again and am back to my hobby of quilting/sewing. Life is wonderful and Dr. Gilbert is AWESOME. I owe my freedom of movement to Dr. Gilbert. Thanks for putting me back out in the world again!!!
