Patient Comments (1)
in Eau Claire, WI |
Dr. Mark Morrey's orthopedic skills and Dr. Brian Carlsen's plastic surgery skills were stretched beyond imagination to save my Mom's arm. Amputation appeared likely. These doctors worked night and day for months, no exaggeration, giving her their all+. Their care and success is surely an original medical achievement documented for others' reference. Memories of their warmth and true devotion to heal her are everlasting. I wish I could say more. Their young families prayed for her every night.
