I have appreciated Dr Sass and his team in regards to the care I have received in relation to my knee replacement. The daily check- in has allowed me to ask questions and receive a quick reply back. They have called me when necessary and/or to see how I was doing. They prepared me to know what to expect through the PACE clinic and the LOOP videos. I would definitely recommend Dr Sass to my friends if they need this procedure.

Dr. Sass is the epitome of a great physician. He is pleasant and friendly but still very professional. He is thorough in his assessment and management of the problem. He explains your condition very well using orthopedic models and explaining results of x-ray/MRI. He is not quick to rush you into a surgery, but offers you options. I wished all health care providers were like this provider!

Dr. Sassmannshausen & Todd DeTurk have provided excellent care for me. All my questions were answered in a very respectable way. They are very courteous, while never rushing, talking over, or belittling my questions or concerns. I have already recommended a family member to see Dr. Sass and she has. BTW...the staff is awesome!!! The nurses are just as great as Dr. Sass himself! I'm so happy I found FWO to treat me!
