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.
