My daughter was misdiagnosed for a unstable shoulder. The dr said she needed to strengthen it and prescribed PT. He gave her a cheap brace that he said she didn’t have to pay for. She was already going to PT but was told her shoulder was to unstable to strengthen. She went to a surgeon at UW and was told her shoulder was so unstable it fell out of socket at every angle. She had surgery and needed 5 bone anchors to secure it, since she has had her other shoulder done for the same reason. She has NPS and has had 16 surgeries on her bones and joints. This was over his head. Instead of admitting it he just misdiagnosed her. He took the easy way out with PT and a brace. Well done doc. Since we have been harassed by his office to pay for the brace that he told her would be free. No doubt price was jacked up 1000% because it was expensive and extremely cheap. In fact she never even wore and wouldn’t of taken it if it wasn’t supposedly a gift. Her 2 surgeries done at UW were very successful.

Our family can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Tingstad and his staff. What a blessing he is to this community and especially to our family! I have three athletic active sons and wouldn't put their care in anyone else's hands.

I have worked with Tingstad over the last ten years. He first did emergency surgery on my right ankle after I fell and broke it in five places. He has followed up as I developed arthritis in my knees. We just completed a total knee replacement. He has explained everything that he wanted to do and gave me my options. During pre-op came in and was very reassuring. He even asked if I would like to have a prayer by him. A very caring and conscientious person.
