I recently had knee replacement surgery at Valley View Hospital, and want to thank Doctor Adams, the nurses, and staff for the excellent care I received. Everyone was so kind and encouraging through a difficult surgery and recovery. Thank you to everyone who helped with my care. Your professionalism and courtesy were greatly appreciated!
