I had my knee replaced earlier this year by Dr Christal and have been very pleased with the whole process. I first met him at a public seminar on joint replacement, which he offers through Swedish Edmonds hospital. My clinic visits were smooth, the office staff wonderful, and Dr Christal was always willing to spend as much time with me as I needed. I felt very informed throughout the entire process. My hospital stay was seamless and now I have a new knee! My pain before the procedure limited my activities every day, but now I am taking walks every day and out in my garden without any troubles. Thanks Dr Christal and the Edmonds Orthopedic staff!!
