I really like him as my dr but I dont like that he doesnt give me a direct answer to time off work after surgery, ex: Å“4 weeks then well re-examine after that.? He basically said Å“whenever youre ready?, making me feel like I just dont want to return to work when it had only been a week since surgery and I could barely walk, had two PT sessions, and was still in a considerable amount of pain. I dont even get my stitches out until this coming week. Pre-op he told me 4-6 weeks which made me feel very comfortable and now I feel rushed. Im not comfortable with this at all. Im scared to return too soon.

From our first meeting throughout this entire process, Dr. Behl was always focused on me as his patient not as a "knee case". Every step of the way he made sure that I was clear on what he was looking to accomplish, what was expected of me during recover and rehab, and that I was always tracking toward my goals following the surgery. His approach to healing is what I believe drove the positive outcome/result from this process. I am truly grateful for his time and expertise, the patience and knowledge of his staff (Nick) and the phenomenal work of Brittany in the rehab department. Thank you all so very much! I really appreciate all of your hard work and efforts. Please feel free to contact me directly (815-508-8366) if you'd like to chat about my experience in further detail.
