Fort HealthCare Orthopaedic Associates Patient Testimonials
Our patients think Fort HealthCare Orthopaedic Associates is great — we think they're pretty great too. Helping thousands of patients every year, here are just a few of our success stories to share:
Amy E. – Dr. Zambrano's patient
I had an injury, that may have been due to a car accident, and my shoulder would have numbness and tingling. I had limited range of motion, which got worse over time and then became constant. I finally reached the point where I had to do something about it. Working in the medical field, and after doing some research, I had heard great things about Dr. Zambrano and felt comfortable going to Orthopaedic Associates. He examined me thoroughly and sat down and talked with me about what he thought my problem was. When it became apparent that therapy wasn't helping, he drew pictures for me on what the surgical procedure entailed, the benefits and risk, how long it would take. He even came in during his vacation to do the surgery for me because my insurance was changing. After surgery he came in and showed me pictures of what he did and then personally called me a week afterwards to see how I was doing. Surgery was December 29 and I was back to work on March 9, which was way ahead of schedule.
Mary C. – Dr. Nordland's patient
I was like many people, afraid to undergo a surgery that may take me out of my daily routine for an extended period of time. I lives and work on a family farm, and the age of 62, I still wanted to work hard. After many months of painful nights’ sleeps, I decided it was time to have my hip replaced with Dr. Nordland. Dr. Nordland is someone that answers questions and understands people. I was so impressed with his thoroughness. He went through all the X-rays with me and explained things. He took the time to watch me walk and he understood my need to get back on my feet
Two days after surgery, I was discharged from the hospital and began physical therapy. The day I was discharged from the hospital, I was so happy, and I was dancing around my room! There was some pain, sure, but it was nothing like the pain that I had felt before surgery. And therapy was great .My overall experience at Fort HealthCare was a remarkable one. From the first time I set foot in the hospital, I felt welcomed. In no way was I a burden on anybody. From the food service staff, to the nurses to the doctors, I was very impressed with the quality of care that I received. A small town hospital does not mean you won’t be able to have the high quality and the advancements in technology as in the bigger places. You can get them all right here. I had choices. I could have gone elsewhere, but I didn’t. Fort HealthCare continues to impress me and we are so lucky in a city of this size to have a hospital of this caliber.
Judy S. – Dr. Bruno’s patient
Tom O. – Dr. Bruno’s patient
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Bruno and the staff at the joint replacement center in Fort Atkinson. I had my first knee replacement done about five years ago, and it turned out great, but the entire experience I had with the second one just earlier this year was worlds better. My recovery has been fantastic, my pain is virtually gone, and the staff at the Joint Camp in the hospital are so knowledgeable and pleasant – they even did whatever they could to make my wife feel at home while I was in the hospital after surgery. Everyone was just great – top notch. Dr. Bruno is just wonderful. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
