I am very happy with all who assisted in my care on March 4 and so glad for the injections given in both knees by Nick assisted by Dr. Canedy and also the x ray tech. helped with painful turning to get through those x rays. She was wonderful. The tech. who was so helpful with getting my shoes back on when all was done. I only wish I had of asked Dr. Canedy more questions than I did about a treatment he mentioned if needed in the future dealing with deading nerves regarding knees with bone on bone issues! My bad, but it can be resolved in future visits cause I will make notes! Thank you to all involved!
