Jonah B. Hulst, MD 

Dr. Jonah B. Hulst is one of the BEST doctors in my practice. He's very knowledgeable, professional, caring, honest and he will spend all the time with you until he will find the solution to your problem. I recommend him!!!

Grant R. Lohse, MD 

Dr. Lohse not only did an excellent job on my Carpel Tunnel Surgery on both of my hands but I was very impressed by his professional manner during the surgery... In addition his consultations both before and after the surgery were very informative and helpful. In addition, he showed that he really cares about his patients by the way he talks to you. I would not hesitate to use him again if I need his services.

Michael J. Sailer, MD 

Let's just say he has put me back together more than once and may not be the last time. Love this guy. Always has a great smile and his assistant handles his business. I implicitly trust Dr. Sailer. He gives options with a smile. One year I tore my bicep tendon off. Had me under the scapel the next day and his anesthesiologist had me wake up like clock work as if I had the best nap ever.

James D. Bruckner, MD 

Dr Bruckner is extremely skilled and his team took great care of me. I am so thankful I was referred to him.

Thomas H. Castle, Jr., MD 

Dr. Castle is an amazing surgeon and the only surgeon I would trust my knees to. He is very personal and professional and gives you quality time and answers. He is good at explaining everything clearly and is knowledgeable and up to date. Two big thumbs up for Dr. Castle!

Thomas D. Chi, MD 

Dr. Thomas Chi is a very bright, competent and personable surgeon and I feel very lucky to have found him to repair my foot. He spends the time needed to thoroughly explain things and to answer questions. It would be awesome if all health care providers took care of their patients the way Dr. Chi does!

Gregory A Komenda, MD 

I had to have 2 shoulder surgeries. Dr. Komenda and his staff did an excellent job making me comfortable and calm. He did a fantastic job. My shoulders healed fast and I have very small scars that are almost invisible.

Silas T. Marshall, MD 

I was lucky! I hope you can have the best too. I shattered my right knee (tibial plateau fracture schatzker level 6) and was lucky! Dr. Silas Marshall was the on-call orthopedic specialist, the best in the area. Dr. Marshall is not only a gifted/skilled perfectionist, he listens intently and answers every question.

Dayne Mickelson, MD 

Dr. Michelson is an incredibly skilled, prudent, caring surgeon. Yes, caring! He followed me closely, responded immediately to complications, and thoroughly and consistently kept track of my progress. I trust him completely and enjoyed working with him.

Tyler J. Nathe, MD 

I found Dr. Nathe to be professional and personable. He perform surgery on my right knee, extracting a bone spur that had broken loose. He explained everything in a manner which I could understand and welcomed questions. I never felt as though I was being rushed through my appointments. I had a wonderful experience and would definitely refer my friends and family to him in the future! Thank you Dr. Nathe!!

Ash C. Patel, MD 

Dr. Patel has operated on my wife and several of my friends. He is an outstanding surgeon, who makes the correct diagnosis, operated only when there is a high probability of success, is compassionate and explains everything well. I highly recommend him!

Ash C. Patel, MD 

Dr. Patel was cordial, patient, and provided excellent care. My back surgery was complex, taking 10 hours, and he ensured I received quality care in the hospital as well as regular, supportive follow up care.

Matthew J. Robon, MD 

Dr. Robon provided excellent care, answered all my questions completely and in reality, made me feel like I was his only patient. That type of care is unique and I feel fortunate to have seen him. Plus, my broken finger works well again!

Trevor Scott, MD 

Dr. Scott is fantastic! I had injured my knee while running and was unable to walk when I first visited him. Dr. Scott quickly got me in for an MRI, and was able to make a diagnosis and recommendations for treatment within days of my injury. He helped me weigh my options for treatment and I decided on surgery. Dr. Scott took a lot of time to explain the surgery and healing process with me, and answered all my questions. My surgery with Dr. Scott was successful and 7 weeks later I'm back to running with zero pain. If I ever need help like this again (which I hope I don't) I will most definitely be going back to Dr. Scott. I highly recommend him, he's patient, knowledgeable, extremely capable, and has an incredible bedside manner.

Christopher Boone, MD 

Dr. Boone is the only surgeon who was honest about my hip and the surgery it would require. He really did his research and spoke to many specialists and researchers before proceeding with my rare and complicated surgery. If you have a hip problem (or something that needs to be put back together) I seriously suggest Dr. Boone.

Christopher Boone, MD 

If I could give ten stars I would. I went to at least 5 surgeons/specialists before I choose Dr. Boone to do my hip replacement. Dr. Boone really listened to me and my concerns and answered all of my questions. The whole process from beginning to end he displayed excellence. My surgery went extremely well and follow up from him and his team was way above average. If you are looking for someone that values you as a human being not only a patient..a number then he's the Surgeon you want!

Christopher Boone, MD 

I found Dr. Boone very knowledgeable, confident, positive and encouraging when diagnosing my hip reconstruction. I had a previous hip replacement by another Dr. and a fracture was discovered. This lead to leg length issues and the foot turning out. I can not recommend DR Boone high enough. If I could give more stars I would. I am now looking forward to getting back to my normal active lifestyle.

Cameron Schick, MD 

I had fractured my wrist and it wasn't healing for months. I decided to see another doctor and found Dr. Schick. He had me get 3d scan and decided to perform surgery on the wrist. It was holiday time but he managed to find time for me. Dr. Schick did a great job with the surgery... I'd recommend Dr. Schick to all my friends and family.
