Dr. Bill has been great to work with thus far in my quest for pain relief in my arm and hand, the acdf 6-7 surgery so far seems to have been quite successful, with the exception of not being able to participate in either the Olympics or Ragbrai, this year, His presurgery care, surgery, and post surgery care has been very good. Note to: Tri State and Unity Point,,, Prior to surgery I did put Dr. Bill and his surgical team in for a raise if the surgery was successful (which it was) so I guess it's time for you guys to pay up!!!! In my defense I was in the early stages of the anesthesia.

My first surgeon at Tri-State was Doctor Thorne he done a wonderful job on my right shoulder after the surgery he says that's when I got. The truck has been treating my shoulders with cortisone shots ultimately need surgery to fix them both but we've been maintaining them with cortisone I'm hoping to continue treating them with the cortisone shot but he has he has referred me to one of the other doctors up there so I've got an appointment set up with him August 11th or 12th a cake but I've had nothing but good experiences with Tri-C

Dr. Althouse was wonderful. He spent almost an hour talking with me and explaining everything because I was a new patient before he gave me the injection in my hip. He is a very kind Doctor Who seems to really care about the welfare of his patients. The best thing was the injection did not even hurt the way it used to at my other doctor’s. I was very pleased.

Dr. Safarov was kind and very thorough. This is our first appointment with him and heard people speak very highly of him. We put all of our trust in him that he will do an excellent surgery on my husband.
