Dr. Seales recently performed a total knee revision on my left knee. Three days after surgery, I’m in less pain and walking better than I had since my first knee replacement in 2021. While in the hospital, many staff employees commented on him, claiming he was the best. I agree 100 percent.

Dr. Noble has guided me through consultation, therapy, and shots. The next step is surgery on my back. He wanted to be sure we tried all avenues of treatment before surgery. Dr. Noble is a caring doctor, and I'm very glad I started with him.
