Review of Dr. Sutherland

- |

This doctor was among the most unprofessional I have ever encountered. After waiting almost an hour because he was running behind, he wrote me and my symptoms off, telling me the pin was likely in my head. He provided inaccurate information and when test results came back abnormal, he never spoke to me and it took days to get ahold of someone at his office. I would never recommend anyone see Mr. Sutherland. I submitted two complaints to his office and have not heard back; it’s been months.

Review of Dr. Brearley

- in Wittenberg, WI |

I could not move my arm up or down after mishap at work.Dr Brearley refused to give me an mri at my request but instead suggested I go to physical therapy for 6 weeks.I did not undestand why he would send me to physical therapy when he had no idea what was wrong without any mri results.So I went for second opinion got a mri which showed a tear of my rotator cuff and am now scheduled to have it repaired.This guy would have just wasted about two months of my life and tear would have gotten worse.

Review of Dr. Russell

- in Wausau, WI |

I had a full right knee replacement on May 8th. 2017. I was approved to drive my vehicle two weeks later, I was playing a round of golf in eight weeks, and was playing pickleball 12 weeks after surgery. If you do all your pre surgery physical therapy, and work hard on your physical therapy at home and twice per week with your therapist, this can also be your outcome. He also did my wife's hip and that also turned out perfect. Around our house we refer to Dr. Russell as "The Magic Man".

Review of Dr. Murch

-Wales, WI |

Dr. Murch helped me when I was brought into emergency after an accident. He has a reassuring demeanor and is an excellent surgeon. Because of the outstanding work he did on my injured legs, after 11 months, my recovery has almost reached its end. I thank Dr. Murch very much for everything he did for me. I will never forget.

Review of Dr. Sutherland

- in Stevens Point, WI |

I have never had a physician lie to me not once but three times regarding the same issue. I am writing this as I await an ambulance to take me to a hospital that does not accept Dr. (Ha ha) Sutherland. I just wish there was more I can do to help any future patient. As I said it was his LIES that caused my bitterness and then him trying to pass the issue blaming his NP. Ambulance here gotta go. If I help 1 person then I will be more than happy.

Review of Dr. Sutherland

- in Wausau, WI |

I just really liked his straight forward attitude with my procedures. He's operated on me twice. Both my knees. He's easy to understand and I didn't feel intimidated to ask questions.

Review of Dr. Russell

- in Wittenberg WI |

We would definitely recommend Dr Russell to any who are having joint problems! His conscientious care in the procedure is above our expectations! We are thankful for the individual personal attention he gives to each patient not only during the treatment but also the follow-up visits! Dr Jeremy Russell would definitely be an asset to the Orthopedic practice! Thank you, Dr Russell!
