Review of Dr. Hoekema

- in Bellingham WA, WA |

ditto of Thomas H. Treated me like a 5 year old. Did not show me or discuss MRI image. What a waste of my time, want a second opinion from a doctor who is not so arrogant and rude.

Review of Joshua Brawley

- in Bellingham, WA |

I had Joshua Brawley for my first post-op checkup following repair of my fractured hip 13 days ago. He was great, patient and willing to listen, expert in his advice, and fun to talk to. Overall, the clinic experience was first-rate, hardly any waiting time, everyone was friendly and courteous.

Review of Joshua Brawley

-Bellingham, WA |

I went to the hospital with a vesicular rash and hadn’t been around many people recently so I couldn’t figure out what it was or where I’d gotten it. Mr. Brawley saw me for less than 2 minutes. He told me what it didn’t look like. He said, something on his way out but wasn’t clear. He didn’t return. The triage nurse came & gave me 3 scripts. I left w/out learning anything abt what I had. Paperwork gave end of visit vitals that were NEVER taken. I guess they’re psychic there. Wish I was.

Review of Dr. Gannon

- in Lynden |

After shattering my upper arm in a fall, Dr. Gannon came to the emergency room, reviewed x-ray results, & discussed surgery options. He was knowledgeable, professional & kind throughout the six months that were required for the healing to be on track. His office personnel were also efficient & professional. I recommend Dr. Gannon for any orthopedic service. He is highly skilled as a surgeon and wonderful as a person. I am 66 y.o. and thanks to his expertise, I have regained full use of my arm.

Review of Dr. Hoekema

- in Bellingham, WA |

My current mobility is due to dr Hoekama. After two hip replacements. And one knee replacement, I can pretty much do anything except jog. I easily walk and do sports. I almost panicked when I thought he retired as I have one more knee to do eventually and I couldn’t imagine having a different surgeon do it.

Review of Dr. Gannon


Review of Pacificrimorthopedic surgeons… This was my second orthopedic surgery, the first being a total hip, and most recently a total knee replacement. I can easily say both experiences were perfect. Both with this surgeon. The pre-operative organization process was excellent with all bases covered and presented in a very understable way. The surgeon, M. Gannon, M.D. was out standing in his knowledge and professional friendly explanations and the excellent results for me.

Review of Dr. Bergman

-Ferndale |

I felt a big pop in my hand, and my little finger just dangled. Turns out I had a bone spur in my wrist that had been gradually cutting through the tendon (or ligament) that controls the movement of my little finger. Dr. Bergman was so professional and compassionate. He attached it to the tendon of the ring finger, and removed the bone spur in my wrist. He sent me to a wonderful physical therapist that specializes in hands. The outcome is wonderful - I'm SO impressed with Dr. Bergman. 5 Stars!!!

Review of Dr. Gannon

- in Bellingham, WA |

Dr. Gannon is a wonderful surgeon, who did a fantastic job on my 84-year-old mother's left hip. She had a fracture in a very awkward location, and he managed to secure the bones just beautifully. She has left-sided atrophy to begin with, due to 35 years with MS, plus existing hardware on the left femur and knee, so this was a difficult and risky case. But she healed just perfectly. And this doctor is just a lovely person. He is kind, professional, thorough, and attentive. I highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Gannon

- in Lynden WA |

Dr. Gannon was very friendly and welcoming and explained in detail what the surgery would entail. He used a model of a knee joint to illustrate this. He answered my questions. He knew my name, shook my hand. After the surgery he again explained the procedure in detail and told me what I would be experiencing. He also encouraged me to call if I had questions.
