Gettysburg SD |
I have been going to Dr. Sanchez for years getting cortisone shots every 3 month due to my bad knees. After talking to Dr. Sanchez and also having enough of the pain for years I decided to have both knees replaced at once. Dr. Sanchez and his staff are great people to work with. They both explained the procedure very well. I would recommend Dr. Sanchez to anyone.

Dr. Sanchez recently performed back surgery on me. He was able to schedule me in immediately. He took the time to explain things before the surgery and provided excellent follow up care.

Dr. Sanchez did a wonderful job on my knee surgery. My leg is very straight. I appreciated that he listenend to me, since I have a Closed Head Injury and prescribed pain medications that went with my other medications and didn't cause big side effects. He was very professional. Thank YOU!!
in Pierre, SD |
I had a bad disk in my neck it was so painful. Dr Sanchez changed his schedule around so he could preform the surgery as soon as possible. I am thankful he was able to diagnose it and preform the surgery so quickly. My recovery is going great. Thank you Dr Sanchez for taking such good care of me!

Dr. Sanchez did a great job of getting my arm and wrist pieced back together after a ladder collapse! After putting in steel plates and screws to hold it together, my wrist is coming along great. I am very satisfied with the care that Dr. Sanchez has given me. Randall Jirsa

Dr Sanchez was very attentive and courteous to take me on promptly. I was travelling and in Pierre SD, when I fell and broke my knee while away from home. I was able to get back to work and on my way within a few days. I consulted with him one day, he explained what he would do to repair the knee and the next day it was done. I felt comfortable with him and able to ask any question. He is great about checking on me and viewing my progress. I thank and recommend Dr Sanchez and his staff highly.

I would recommend Dr Sanchez. He has done knee surgery and shoulder surgery on me. I have nothing but good thing to say about him. He is one of those doctors that is easy to approach.
in Winner, SD |
I broke my collar bone and was in the worse pain and it happened at the worse time for a rancher. He got me right in, explained what he thought I needed, I agreed and was fixed and better the next day. The staff and his PA were really nice and helpful. Very good doctor with good skills, personality, no nonsense and good common sense.

Dr. Sanchez, is a very smart surgeon. He really cares about your outcome. He will try many ways to keep you from needing surgery, but if you really do, he is the one to do it. He always treats me and my family with respect and kindness, like a good neighbor! He is professional and thoughtful. He will send you to some one with more or different experience is he needs to without hesitation. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and will go the extra mile to get what you need. We are lucky!

Recently had my knee replaced Wish there were more doctors like him in this country
in Pierre, SD |
Dr. Gon Sanchez is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in South Dakota. He has time for his patients; he answers questions; he works with the other physicians and specialists; and in a hospital where generally the only doctors that patients see are hospitalists, he takes the time to stop in and visit his patients. I had a total knee replacement last month and the care given me has been wonderful. I would not have received this quality of care with an out of town surgeon. Knee is great!
Dr. Sanchez is smart, maybe too smart for his own good. He has a huge ego and suffers from doctor pride. He operated on my shoulders FOUR TIMES leaving me with several life-threatening complications including an upper-limb DVT and HA-MRSA. After my left shoulder surgery I knew something was terribly wrong. At the two-week post-operative visit, when I tried to tell him the surgery had gone bad, he literally laughed in my face. What came later was bloody and horrifying.

Horrible results for my knee replacement. I'm not sure what happened in that operating room, but it sure wasn't good. Go out of town for your knee replacement!
