I am very pleased with both Dr. Gouge and his PA, Matt. They listened to me and provided excellent care. I had surgery on my knee to address two torn meniscus. My recovery has gone well with no complications and much less pain than anticipated. Dr. Gouge explained clearly the condition of my knee and what he did to make corrections. I am very thankful for him and his excellent work. I highly recommend him.

I had total hip replacement with Dr. Gouge this year (2/2016) and my husband had knee replacement last year. Throughout, Dr. Gouge was communicative, listened to us, explained things carefully and showed a great deal of care with pre-surgical and post-surgical issues. My hip replacement was done beautifully and without any follow-up problems. I would recommend Dr. Gouge to anyone looking for a good surgeon for knee or hip replacement.

I recently had a hip replacement by Dr. Gouge with a great outcome, A+on all levels - from my 1st appointment to my 4 month check-up. Dr. Gouge and the Olympic Medical Center exceeded my expectations. I only wish I had not waited so long. I'm glad I was able to stay local.
