As a retired RN with years of ortho surgery hospital experience I choose my physicians carefully. Dr. Gaenslen quickly and accurately diagnosed my wrist/hand problem and explained the planned procedure. I appreciate his calm, caring bedside manner and my surgery eliminated a long-standing increasingly painful problem. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any upper extremity issue.

Dr Gaensken's assistant at the Good a Hope Clinic incorrectly cast my son's hand. We had to go to a different specialist who recast it correctly adding an additional 5 weeks to what was supposed to take only four weeks total. The casting done by Gaenslen ( straight fingers), resulted in months of physical therapy to regain most motion of fingers. Dr Gaenslen does not monitor his inept staff. BEWARE
in Kenosha, Wi |
Such a great doctor figured out my elbow pain instantly after I had already been to 3 different doctors for 3 years of pain and 6 cortisone shots later. It took him one visit to figure out the problem. Thank you
