"Sometimes being old isn't comfortable. I am overweight and have trouble with my knees. Dr. Thackeray has been giving me shots in my knees to make it easier for me to get around. I really appreciate this. I don't want to be in a wheelchair and this has helped me avoid that. I do volunteer work and all my housework. They are always so very nice to work with. I couldn't do without them. Thank you so much." - Trina B.
