Patient Testimonials

“I was very concerned about having knee replacement because I was worried I would have to have the other knee replaced later. But Dr. Diminick did an x-ray of my second knee and advised me it was not likely that knee would need replacement. I never had the 2 days of horrible pain that even a doctor had warned me about. When I was sitting in a chair 5 hours after the operation looking at Dr. Diminick, I asked him where the 2 days of pain was. He replied that he guessed he left that out! Obviously, I had an extraordinary surgeon at OrthoVirginia. My recovery was rapid and my pain minimal. One of Dr. Diminick’s staff called me on a Sunday because I was having a reaction to one of the prescribed medications. Dr. Diminick and his entire staff were kind and knowledgeable throughout my recovery and beyond. I am still in shock that I did not have 2 days of intense pain the way every person I know who had knee replacement did. Thank you, Dr. Diminick. And I thank you staff. At 77 years of age, I walk 1/3 to 1/2 mile every day with joy!” – Vicky W.
