IMO, Dr. Suleiman had a very nice manner about them, came across very aware of my situation (from either the x-rays, or listening to their junior doctor, or both), and presented my knee challenges and potential alternatives well. Plus, it was nice to have a Doctor give me realistic options, and not immediately go with medication or surgical routes.
