James B.

I’m 73 yrs of age and have reached that time in my life where going up and down stairs have made my life considerably difficult for me. One adjustment made was to move into a town house, where everything is on one level. That adjustment helped but many more decisions had to be made. My wife who was a patient at St Croix Ortho in Woodbury suggested making an appointment to be examined. She was completely satisfied with what they were able to do for her and believe me she had some serious issues. I called to make an appointment and was told that because of where I lived I should make an appointment Twin City Ortho in Wyoming and they gave me the number to make that contact. This was the best move I’ve made in solving my issues with hips and knees. I called and made an appointment to get checked out . I can’t say enough for the professionalism showed me from day one starting with the scheduling staff after a brief period filling out personal data I was introduce to Dr.Erik Peterson’s assistant Christine and Molly. They without a doubt made the up coming surgeries so much easier. Their show of concern had such a calming effect on me, which at this point I really needed. Then I met Dr. Erik Peterson. The professional manner in which things were explained to me and what to expected set me at ease right from the start. I had two surgeries first the hip which was a huge success, all because Dr. Peterson is an excellent surgeon who cares not only for the patient but for the family members involved, all praised him very highly… the hip was such a success I was ready to have a knee on the same side, which was in terrible condition and ready for a replacement. This also was handled in the same manner as the hip and nothing but praise for everyone. The hospital staff, and floor nurses especially who attended me made me feel as though I was the only person on the floor, a difficult job done made easy. Dr. Peterson made his rounds checking on me, the knee and the hip during his rounds. Once again he made sure the family were at ease with all of this. After a short hospital stay I started therapy, again this was at the Twin City Orthopedics , in Wyoming. This is where I met Nicole who moved me through some very difficult moments with ease , she too is very professional and made this job a lot more pleasant. I wish to thank Dr. Peterson, because of his skill as a surgeon for giving an old man a few more years of pain free moments He is a credit to his profession. Christine and Molly I can’t say to much for you both. A time when things were not so good you made a pleasure to come in for my visits. Thank you all very much, I’ll never forget you, I mean it, you left a lasting impression on me….To all of you don’t ever change the way you work with people Remember there is always someone like me out there who needs you….
