" I was very pleased coming back to Dr maccullum. I had left Dr maccullum and went to another doctor and had a knee replacement. It was awful. I had to have another revision and my knee still is not right. The worst thing I did was leave maccullum. The biggest mistake I made. I came back because it is my opposite knee that is bothering me. I am so glad I did.The caring and taking time. "
