Patient Comments (6)
Wilmington, NC |
Dr. Fortun was very respectful of my time. He was straight to the point and never made me wait too long in the waiting room or in his office before he was available. Dr. Fortun treated me for a tear in the cartilage of my hip. No other doctor in Wilmington provided this service. I had surgery in September and was back to running 3-4 miles by end of February with no set backs or issues.

Dr. Fortun is knowledgeable and caring about his patients. He spends sufficient time to explain the situation and possible solutions. He answers all questions so his patients can make an informed decision about their healthcare. He remembers his patients from visit to visit and is personable and genuine. I am very pleased with the results of my shoulder surgery and will not hesitate to engage Dr. Fortun for any future orthopedic needs.

Dr Fortun was recommended to be by someone who had the same surgery that I needed. I tore my rotator cuff and was in pain just walking. Since the surgery, I haven't been in pain at all. The surgery itself was painless. From hearing recovery stories from others who went to different surgeons, I was expecting the worst but was happily surprised. No Pain At All! Four months after surgery I was back on the tennis courts . Life is Good!

Underwent rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Fortun. Had next to no pain during recovery and during PT. Was back playing competitive tennis in 4 months. Recommended Dr. Fortun to my girlfriend who needed rotator cuff surgery a year later. She had similar results and we are headed out to play some tennis now.

Dr.Fortun performed surgery, on my triceps, fantastic job, before during and after , actually came out to my wife, sat down and talked to her, and explained everything ,about the surgery and the needed recovery . My wife commented, about how none of the other doctors even came out to the others that were sitting out there. If you need a great doc that you can trust he is your Man.
