"I have been a patient at Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists for about five years. During that time, I have had one scope procedure and three joint replacements as well as injections in a variety of joints. Dr. Russell VanderWilde performed all of these procedures with the assistance of his physician assistant, John Loranger. I have never been to any kind of doctor who has treated me with the respect and care that I have received from these two professionals. Dr. VanderWilde is not a doctor who is quick to do surgery. He very carefully presents options that are less invasive and lets the patient have a huge say in what is going to happen. I personally chose injections and scope procedures that got me through for a while. Dr. VanderWilde told me that I would know when it was time for the joint replacement surgeries. He was correct. When it was time for these surgeries, I would not have anyone do them, but Dr. VanderWilde.
The care that I have received from every person with whom I have had contact at Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists have always showed me the utmost respect and a genuine care for my well-being. I have referred other people to Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists and have heard nothing but praise from them. I feel so strongly about how well I have been treated by Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists, that should my insurance not have them as a preferred provider, I would switch insurance companies." -- Brad L.
