Dr. Lazaro was limited to a degree. Without An MRI at his disposal, it is kind of hard to really say with certainty what is going on with my right knee. He used his experience manually to gauge what maybe going on with my knee. I'm now scheduled for an MRI and I am confident he will be able to tell me directly what is wrong with my knee. He did say it may be a torn meniscus. And I trust and believe his diagnosis. My symptoms say this is most likely the case.
