Dr. King is fantastic. He was recommended me by my wife. He was extremely friendly, thorough, and effective. I had been suffering from shoulder pain for almost a year and was afraid that I would have to wait even after this appointment for some treatment, I was delighted when Dr. King proposed and conducted an injection that provided almost immediate relief. Dr. King also did an excellent job explaining to me the physiology of the shoulder joint and what was causing the various pains I had. He also talked me through the x-rays which had been taken months ago but which I had not seen. A great caregiver!!!

Dr. King was the best doctor I have interacted with a long time, if ever. He was so personable and kind. He cared about me as a person and was not just focused on my issue with my wrist. I also did not feel rushed. He listened to what I had to say. I wish he was my primary care physician. I often feel like a walking dollar sign to doctors and not cared for as a human being (I understand they are often rushed and stressed, etc. but still). However, this was not the case with Dr. King. I'm just really grateful to get help from a compassionate and knowledgable doctor. Other doctors could learn from him!

Prior to my visit with Dr. King, I had made the same appointment with Dr. Konya @ Twinsburg in March because she is a closer drive for me. COVID-19 changed that and the appointment was moved to April/May with Dr. Konya. This is a three week/once a week appointment for knee injections. The appointment was then cancelled because Dr. Konya was not going to be available. Then the appointment was moved to a different physician. Three days before my May appointment became available I received a call. My appointment was once again cancelled and moved to the end of July 2020. The receptionist told me that the doctor did not want to take another physicians patient. I have Euflexxa knee injections every 6 months. All of these cancellations made me three months overdue and my knees very uncomfortable. I phoned Dr. King's office and expained what had taken place. They pleasantly got me in the following week. I love Dr. King!! He has taken care of my knees and other orthopedic issues without fail. I was only trying not to drive an hour and 15 minutes. Twinsburg is 50 minutes for me, however I'm not going to try making an appointment with them again.
