I was referred to Dr. Kostman by my rheumatologist back in 1998 because I was suffering from arthritis and bone-on-bone pain in both knees. I walked with a cane and at that time, I thought I would never walk without one. Dr. Kostman’s reputation preceded him as my rheumatologist had a wealth of confidence in him. After my first visit with him, he gained my confidence and eventually replaced both knees, one year apart. His expert talents, his bedside manner and his guidance changed by life by giving me such a better quality of life. I have every confidence in Dr. Kostman and I have referred a number of people to him and still refer. Needless to say, I haven’t used a cane since my knee replacements.
