.Crackling in the knee cap area --sometimes when I take a step.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Jan. 2017 Broken clavical. Dec.2016 minor whiplash from a minor car accident. Had cortisone in my right shoulder 8 years ago after having surgery and it cleared up any pain to this day. Today I am 200 lbs. and 76 yrs. old. I definitely do not want my knee to give out again.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
