I had a severely swollen and painful hand and after my family doctor called he got me in immediately and then also scheduled a followup a few days later. All while booked up and I didn't have more than 15 minutes wait. Excellent service...

The first requires surgery; the second did not. In both instances, from the receptionist all the way up to the great doc himself, everyone was courteous, polite, professional, and sincerely understanding and helpful of/to my injury. As for Dr. Harrod—Fantastic! Most importantly, he’s competent. Second most important, he explains everything to the patient and allows ample time for questions.

I prayed all spring and summer for god to lead someone across my path with the best of best doctor that was a godly man/woman for my knees ,I'm so thankful he answered my prayers, he was not only a Christian but he prayed for the patient and prayed for his staff that helped him during surgery. I called and got right in to see Dr Christian Christensen ...I loved him, trusted him, loved his staff and three days later he partially replaced one of my knees !! I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor

He did carpel tunnel surgery on my right hand in 2009 and I have had NO residual numbness. I started having pain in my thumb joints in November, 2015 and the pain remained constant. I saw Dr. O'Neill in May, 2016. He recommended injections and advised they may be painful. I had them in both thumbs and by the next day, I have no pain in my thumbs joints! I am extremely satisfied!

He was very attentive to my questions and to my wife’s questions. Dr. Denehy performed a complete hip replacement on my right hip in January 2019, and then a complete hip replacement on my left hip on March 2019. I would highly recommend Dr. Denehy, he is an excellent and caring surgeon. Dr. Denehy is one fine young man and it has been a pleasure to get to know him.

Dr. Harrod was very professional and took time to listen to my concerns. He asked several questions and then explained the nature of the problem with my feet and the course of action that he felt was the best for me.

I prefer him cause he has a sense of humor and is very straight forward. Also the fact that he tries to avoid surgeries if possible, which is a relief if therapy can fix the issue and get me back to work.
