“I had been having ongoing pain in my right hip and went to my chiropractor who provided some relief, but felt that an x-ray was necessary. I had my primary care physician approve the order for the x-ray and after I received the images and the report, I had my primary care physician refer me to Dr. Wood. I was able to schedule an appointment within two weeks. Dr. Wood was thorough and left no questions unanswered even if the answers were not what I wanted to hear. I went to see him with the notion that a quick shot of cortisone and I would be as good as new. Dr. Wood explained that it would only give me short term relief and the only permanent solution to the chronic pain was a total hip replacement. My wife and I decided to schedule the surgery and just get it done. The next day I received a call from the scheduler and had a date for my surgery which was only three weeks after my initial appointment. I had surgery in the morning of the day scheduled. The surgery went well. I was walking that evening and was able to go home the next morning. My rehabilitation after the surgery is going very well and each and every week I am experiencing measurable improvement. All things being considered we made the right decision with the right doctor and I could not be more pleased with the outcome.”

“Dr Femiano is a personable and knowledgeable doctor who takes the time needed with a patient. I didn’t require a prolonged visit but never felt he was rushing to the next patient. He “talked” to me not at me and gave me good advice. Wish all doctors have his ability to relate one in one.”

“Michelle assisted Dr Agatarap on my knee surgery. I have had most of my follow up appointments with her and she is great. I appreciate her being straight forward and thorough. Both Dr. Agatarap and Michelle are awesome to work with.”

“Dr. McKay was wonderful. From the very beginning he understood my concerns and treated me in a very professional manner. During my procedure he went the extra mile to make sure all my medical problems regarding my shoulder were treated correctly. He explained very clear the process of the procedure and medical treatment to follow. He was very professional and very kind person at the same time.”

“Very Good. Love everyone there.”

“First, and most important, the medical care was excellent (diagnostics and procedures). As busy as doctors are, I appreciate the fact that when you are being seen by Dr. Helpenstell or Josh Mayes you have their full, unrushed attention. Explaining procedures and probable outcomes is necessary, but I never felt surgery was being pushed or a decision rushed. X-ray, MRI, and office staff are friendly, patient, and helpful. Over all, I take my orthopedic concerns to Olympia Orthopedic with the greatest of confidence.”
