I would like to talk about Dr. Cushner. He has given me my life back. He did a fabulous job on my left knee and on my right knee. And I don't know what I would have done without him. He is just fabulous and I can never thank him enough for all the work that he did on me. I'm 100% satisfied and I always talk, talk to my friends extremely highly of him, because he deserves it.

Dr. Cushner - the best thing I can say about him is I met him 12 years ago. Walked into his office, told him what was wrong with my knee. When I went to a million doctors out on Long Island, I was in terrible pain, totally I needed a knee replacement. It's the best thing I ever did in my life. Anybody who uses him wouldn't regret it!
