"I really like the way doctor shakes your hand the minute he walks into the room, asks how you are and listens to what I have to say. Like I tell everyone else I meet, if they need a doctor for a hip or knee, get Dr. Dimitris. He explains everything and tries to explain why I would be having a problem, and asks me if I want to do more PT, of which I jumped on being a truck driver and needing to be able to climb into a semi-truck. You can't find a better Doctor for a knee then Dr. Dimitris. I only wish I would of had my surgery sooner." – Roger L.
