Very personable staff and Dr. Olarte was wonderful, very nice, polite, knowledgeable. A real pleasure.
Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow and I have NO anxiety due to the professional service provided by Dr. Helgemo and his staff. I look forward to being able to have strength in my hands, without pain, once again.
Directions to your facility was excellent! Staff was informative and patient. Dr Halgemo was extremely informative, gentle, explained procedures to be given and prognoses.
