I had surgery on Mon., got out of hospital on Thurs. and was at our church yard sale on Sat., without a cane or walker. He had prayer for me before surgery. I thank GOD for the knowledge and talent that HE has given to Dr. Christensen. I think most importantly you need to do the therapy as I think it helps you to have a speedy recovery. I'm now going to have surgery on my other knee soon. I highly recommend him and his staff.

We learned more in 5 minutes than we had learned in numerous visits to other doctors. Dr Harrod was kind and very informative. He spoke to us and not above us. I highly recommend Dr Harrod.

Great dr He's short sweet and to the point. He's truly concerned about his patients wellbeing. Had CTRS 3 yrs ago now on left hand and I'm returning for surgery on the right. I wouldn't trust my hands to anyone else.

Dr. Harrod is friendly, very knowledgable, professionable and easy to understand. My experience was very positive. It is refreshing coming away from an appointment feeling that your doctor really cares and wants to help.

Dr Huff is very knowledgeable & caring. He treats his patients with respect and has always made me feel at ease. I wouldn’t want any other orthopedic dr but him.

I liked the clear, direct and concise approach. I liked the fact that there was no hand wringing ‘oh, you poor thing’. It is surgery, nothing more nothing less. The doctor is confident, a good thing, and offered great insight into... I liked the clear, direct and concise approach. I liked the fact that there was no hand wringing ‘oh, you poor thing’. It is surgery, nothing more nothing less. The doctor is confident, a good thing, and offered great insight into the technology and materials to be used in the replacement.
