“The surgery center was so much better than a stay in a hospital. The nurses and staff including Dr. Hansen made my hip replacement so easy. I’m free of that horrible hip pain!”
“Dr. Stevens fixed an ankle that gave me problems for 40 years. No more pain. I can walk on it like I used to. Thank you Dr. Stevens!”
“VERY highly recommend Dr. Peterson. He did surgery on my hand for trigger finger back in June. Minimal scarring and haven’t had a problem since! His assistant is wonderful as well! You all are amazing. Thanks for taking good care of me.”
“Dr Sahota is EXCELLENT! He listens, spends the time you need to answer questions, and explains VERY well what needs to be done. I would highly recommend him if you are having back problems.”
“My mom had surgery on her back by Dr. Sahota and is doing great. I went to see him after seeing how nicely he took care of her. He got me better from my neck problem without surgery! Very caring. To the point. Honest. He went over my MRI with me and really explained everything in plain English.”
“I have had a hip and knee replacement with Dr. Merrell and Dr. Higgs, respectively. Both of the doctors and their staff have been wonderful, friendly, courteous, and provide expert service. I am impressed by the personnel as well as the results of the surgeries. PA Joe Webb has been especially helpful and the nurses have been wonderful. I can’t say enough about the Tri-Cities Orthopedics Clinic. Making appointments is fast and easy and I don’t have to wait.”
“I had seen another orthopaedic doctor about my hip problems, and he only wanted to try medication. Nothing helped, so I tried Dr. Merrell. He gave me options, explained the options, and we made a decision together. He performed hip replacement surgery on me six years ago. The surgery, recovery, and healing all went very well. I’m very pleased with Dr. Merrell and recommend him highly.”
“Great patient care, great concern for the patient and great doctor/patient treatment. I am made to feel I am getting the best care when I go here. Dr. Stevens is great. The staff is awesome. Thank you Tri-City Orthopaedic Clinic for being available for my treatment and care.”
“The whole staff was friendly, polite, and in a good mood. They all seemed as though they enjoyed where they work and like what they do. This made me feel more comfortable about my surgery.”
“I had this procedure done at the end of June with Dr. Breeden and I am very blessed to be able to say that it has worked wonderfully for me. It is very life changing to be able to live another day with no headache or migraines. So thank you very much to Dr. Breeden and his staff Laura for actually caring and being understanding. I am truly blessed. Thank you very much.”
“Dr. Perry is great. He takes as much time as is needed to explain what the problem is and exactly what procedure he will employ to treat the issue. The staff are professional and very friendly.”
“I just wanted to take time to tell you how much your amazing staff meant to us. My husband and I were very nervous and our son received outstanding care. We can’t thank you enough for taking such great care of him.”
“Dr. Merrell handles himself in a very professional manner. His staff strives to keep his appointments on time. The knee he replaced for me has been a godsend. I have had 0 problems since being discharged from therapy. I plan on getting the other knee done in the near future.”
