Professional and to point where I understood my medical issue. I'm grateful to have him Dr. Romness as my Doctor. As a plus, I showed up early and his staff was able to squeeze me in to see me earlier than my appointment.

I feel extremely blessed to have been referred to this very special orthopedic surgeon with a long history of incredible credentials in the field of knee joint replacement. Upon my first meeting with Dr. Romness, my wife and I immediately knew he was the right choice for my surgery. I was immensely impressed with his positive and upbeat approach as well as his calm and relaxing demeanor. Due to the pandemic, the impact of delays for urgent treatment was handled by Dr. Romness and his staff in the most professional manner. My recovery has been amazing and I am now active and pulling weeds from my yard three weeks following surgery. Special kudos to Dr. Romness and his staff. What a terrific group of professionals.

I have knee pain that’s getting worse partly because I don’t exercise enough and some of it is age related. Have been seeing Dr Romness for 3-4 years 1-2 a year. He’s thorough, explains options very well and is friendly. I strongly recommend him.

I am 3 plus months post op total knee arthroplasty. I have no pain. I am finishing PT next week. I was miserable prior to my total knee replacement. Standing, walking, sleeping, stairs any activity was nightmarish. Dr. Romness is a brilliant and experienced surgeon and diagnostician. So glad I chose him. Terrific staff. If you have a question, his staff are excellent and return calls quickly. I will need a hip replacement in the future, I will have Dr. Romness perform that procedure.

Having spent most of my adult life playing soccer and tennis, wear and tear is the price you pay. I have no regrets, and I would do it all over again. The treatment and counseling I have received from Dr. Romness continues to be great, and is much appreciated.

Dr. Romness did bilateral total knee replacement for me in December 2009. He continues to be the best physician I have ever used. Superior diagnostic skills and awesome bedside manner as well as a fantastic surgeon.

I am scheduled to have my second total hip replacement with Dr. Romness. He performed my first hip replacement earlier this year which was a total success and a significant improvement in my quality of life. I have every confidence in his surgical skills and I highly recommend him.

Very perfunctory and unsatisfying visit. In and outnin 5 minutes. I can't come within 10 degrees of locking my knee. Dr R claims its functional...it doesn't seem that way to me.

All went well, dr Romnes in my opinion is the best. My only complaint is that it took around three weeks to get an appointment.
