completely thorough and trustworthy. I went in for nerve problems in right hand, since no ortho doc would look at my hands. He did ulnar nerve release on hand, and I was so pleased with surgery result, that I trusted him to do growth on left index finger that had bothered me for a while. Excellent surgeon, excellent stitches, and quick recovery! He did pre op testing so we both knew what was going to happen. A complete professional, I highly recommend him, and his personal assistant, Kelly.

Dr Siverhus did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. The entire experience was excellent, his staff professional and friendly, and most importantly, the outcome was perfect. My pain and discomfort are gone and the incisions healed beautifully. All my questions were answered thoroughly and any concerns addressed. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr Siverhus. He was recommended to me by another of my doctors.

Dr. Siverhus and his staff provide a respectful, efficient, and caring office experience. Dr. S. involves you in decisions regarding conditions and treatment options. Therapist Linda was very helpful in saving me extra expense by evaluating treatment results - what was helping and what was not - in order to move me on to the next stage of diagnosis and treatment.

Very personal and informative; Dr. Siverhus has a calm friendly style that puts you at ease. In my case he recommended a less invasive course of treatment that has worked out very successfully thus far. In addition the staff of administrators and therapists were also very attentive and professional.

Friendly, courteous, efficient, timely, thorough, and informative. I had a ton of questions. He and his staff took the time to ease my mind by providing not merely basic answers. They provided viable solutions. Reassuring lies did not replace uncomfortable truths. Dr. Siverhus' lack of certainty was as comforting as his assurances. For this, i am grateful!

I have been dealing with trigger finger and carpal tunnel problems. Each time I would visit Dr. Siverhus he took the time to explain exactly what was going on and what we could do about it. His manner is kind,considerate and patient. The surgeries he has recommended I have had and I am well pleased. Karen

He did surgery on both of my hands for carpal tunnel. I had a specialist at work (specialized in ergonomics) take a look after. He thought that a plastic surgeon did the work since it was done so well!

I lost my finger tip in a snowblower accident and Dr. Siverhus took care of me through the entire process afterwards. He clearly explained all options and the positives and negatives for all of them. When he performed the surgery he was able to do the least invasive surgery while saving as much of my finger as possible. During the entire 3 month process he kept me informed and calm about everything that was happening. I couldn't of asked for a better experience after a terrible accident.

Dr. Siverhus is a very caring doctor. Spends as much time as you need and asks how are you doing when you get a procedure done. I fo for cortisone shots a couple of times per year and he and his staff are wonderful. And his assistant Kelly is the BEST.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Siverhus. His staffed promptly processed my paperwork. I saw him within minutes of the appointed time. He gave me an initial diagnosis on the issues I was having with my thumb and had x-rays done immediately in order to confirm his diagnosis. He pointed out on the x-rays why I was having my problem and talked about the range of interventions. He took time to be sure that I understood what he was saying. I was very pleased with the appointment.

Most doctors in each specialty encompass the knowledge needed to be efficient at what they do. Dr. Siverhus brings not only the knowledge and experience, it means more when the bedside manners and personality make you feel at peace knowing you are in good hands. The options of having the hunters rod procedure were presented, the multiple surgeries it would take and especially the healing time were very important to me on making the correct decision to go through with it.

Dr. Siverhus was a recommendation from my boss when I first saw him years ago. A recommendation I glad I took. Dr. Siverhus is very knowledgeable, friendly and truly cares about his patients. My multiple surgeries, due to the condition (dupuytren's contracture) not his skill, my healing was painless and very little or no scarring.
