Patient Reviews

“"Today, Dr. Nelson did an arthroscopy on my left knee. Everything went as planned and everyone from the staff at Heartland Orthopedics to everyone today for the surgery at the hospital was friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. This was my 4th surgery, and I have always received excellent care and appreciate everything that has been done for me through all of these surgeries. And of course, to Dr. Nelson a big thank you and GO HUSKIES!" --Vicki M.”

“"Everyone seemed very competent at my first visit, especially Dr. Sticha. My surgery went well, my pain was managed, especially staying ahead of it, proved to be best! I especially appreciated calls I was able to make with another patient, with same surgery only two weeks earlier.  It was ALOT more major than I had expected, recovery time longer, but in the end I feel blessed to have competent professional staff through my whole experience." -- Sally B.”

“"I would like to thank Dr. Dennis Weigel for the good job that he did is fixing my left shoulder and clavical. If he hadn't done such a good job I wouldn't be able to use my left arm anymore. I had started to fall and not thinking I grabbed the railing to keep from falling. It didn't hurt until the next day and then it was on a Saturday and so I waited until on Monday to call my doctor and he had an X-ray taken and told me that I had arthritis in the shoulder, so he gave me a prescription filled. This went on for over a month. I went back to the doctor and told him that I wanted to see a specialist. So he got me an appointment with Dr. Weigel. He gave me a shot in the shoulder and said to try that. Well I called him in a week and I got another appointment with him, and he suggested surgery. I said yes, so he got an appointment set for the surgery and if it wasn't for the surgery I wouldn't be able to use my arm. I want to thank Dr. Dennis Weigel for the good job and the good care that I got at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists. The personnel there at Heartland are all very concerned about the patients and they give 100%." -- Carrie V.”
