Patient Reviews

"I needed to have a re-do of my right knee due to a very  bad fall. My current physician didn't do revisions, so Dr. Thomas was asked to take over my case. He was an excellent choice and I'm so happy with the treatment and his care. I want to thank Greg Mellor, PA., for taking the time to talk with Dr. Thomas about my prior replacement surgery and for the need for the revision. It's good to know that good people working at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics care about the people who come to them for help. Thank you everyone." – Sandy B.
