When I first thought of having a knee replacement, I dreaded it after hearing horror stories from others who had gone through it. My discomfort became so great that I had to do it whether I wanted to or not. While researching to find the best surgeon I found local people who recommended Dr. Wallis. It was the best thing that could have happened. From my first appointment at his office to the culmination of the knee replacement surgery, Dr. Wallis treated me like I was a family member. He explained everything thoroughly and provided me with plenty of reading material, as well as, medication. His beside manner is such that not only did I get well informed, he also allayed my fears. After the surgery, he visited me in the hospital, answered all my questions and showed he really cared. The surgery went perfectly with minimum pain and a smaller scar than others I have seen.
The nurses at St. Rose Hospital on Eastern Ave. went above and beyond to make sure my hospital stay was comfortable and they too treated me like family.
Dr. Wallis' staff has been helpful and courteous at all times.
All in all, my knee replacement experience was flawless. I would highly recommend Dr. Wallis at OIH for his professionalism, skill and bedside manner. When I need my other knee replaced, I will only have him so it.
