Patient Reviews

“I appreciate how Dr. Lynch has listened to my struggles and offered a realistic game plan for getting my problems addressed.” — Barbara N.

“My overall experience with Dr. Lynch and his staff has been ultra-positive. Everyone on staff is friendly; this includes the receptionist, who greets each patient pleasantly during check- in. The nurses, doctors, and radiology staff are concerned about painful joints. He performed 2 successful knee implant surgeries, I was given good aftercare. All-in-all, I received great care from Dr Patrick Lynch and his staff. And, I've returned to Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists for joint care over the last 6 years.” — Sharon N.

“Dr. Lynch took a personal interest in my treatment. He gave me the feeling that I got the same treatment a member of his family would receive. Thank you for the professional personal care.” — Michael O.

“My knees were replaced by Dr. Patrick Lynch Jr. I had a very fast and easy recovery. I am enjoying hiking and working-out daily. I only wish I had gotten the procedures earlier. I have recommended Dr. Lynch to my friends and they are reporting a similar experience.” — Martin B.

“Over the course of three years Dr. Lynch did full replacements on both of my hips. Recovery was great and my quality of life has returned. I am very active in the outdoors! Highly recommend Dr. Lynch and all the staff at NWOS.” — Jim L.
