How likely are you to recommend Dr. Sullivan?

Dr. Sullivan was very good to me when I had bilateral knee replacement in 2016. He came to see me during my first couple days right after surgery, taking the time to actually sit with me and answer questions. He also came back another time during the initial recovery to see how well I was walking. He did two manual adjustments when I asked him to and saw me on two occasions when I was sure I had messed up my new hardware. I really do appreciate, too, that he agreed to do this surgery as another doc had told me he wouldn't do it until I lost more weight. Dr. Sullivan took one look at my X-rays and said "When do you want to do this? " I felt like he understood that I am a motivated person who would do everything I could, with swimming, PT, exercise, etc. to both recover and lose more weight. He showed the wisdom of being able to read and understand me as a person, as well as the most obvious fact that, of course, I couldn't go on with knees that could be felt & heard crunching!
