Dr. Kane's Reviews

I have arthritis in my left knee . I came to see Dr Kane because he did hip surgery on me years ago and I have recovered very well. Been able to work and enjoy life.Recently I have had trouble with osteoarthritis and once again am receiving excellent care from all of the medical staff and Dr Kane. Thanks to everybody.
