I am very pleased with the duration and quality of your work. I also want to say the reason I went to another doctor was my wife needed an injection in her hip, while I was there I also had my consultation and said he could rush me in before the holidays and then we scheduled a replacement but had to cancell for medical reasons once everything was normal I wanted to have you do my hip with a proven excellent track record that I am very happy with, thx again, Mr. Censki.
