    All is well with my knee replacement, except for occasional pain around the kneecap. Rating would have been a five if I got to see Dr. Schoifet each visit.

    Dr. Schoifet explained everything to me before my surgery and everything he said was exactly consistent with my experience. The emails prior to surgery was very helpful and reduced any anxiety I had. I never had any pain. The hospital staff -- nurses and techs were helpful and they smiled!

    My experience at Virtua Hospital with Dr. Scott Schoifet has been excellent in every way. The professional that was evidenced at every level was first class. Dr. Schoifet is a surgeon par excellence and I feel confident that my second surgery of a knee replacement will be very successful.
