"I had just returned from a month away helping a friend move her ranch. It was a vast undertaking. I was home less than two weeks and fractured my leg. I wish I had known it was a fracture when I refused to get a pain shot from the ER. I thought for sure I had messed up cartilage and felt there was no honor in a pain shot for some thing so minor.Dr. Keeve’s staff saw me very quickly. They were excellent and comforting. I was scheduled for the needed MRI. I was gratified to learn that I didn't have to get shoved in the "Tube of Death" and could have the alternative. I got to sit in a very comfy chair with pillows under either arm and look at magazines while my damaged leg was in the MRI machine. The staff was so nice and sweet.
I had to get up and running to be able to carry my share on the ranch, so I was very careful to do what the doctor ordered. I don't do couch potato well. As I have not been able to lift more than ten pounds, I have become a "drag queen". Doing what I have been told to do has given me a huge payoff. It has been about five weeks and the pain is gone. I am up and running on my ranch again. I can spend all the time I want with my horses. I would HIGHLY recommend Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists to anyone. They have great care & very caring. I knew I had the best team working for me." -- Michele R.
