Patient Comments (1)
in Puyallup, WA |
I have been a patient of Dr Bargren for almost 20 years. He has treated me for several broken ankles, and knee pain, which included three orthoscopic knee surgeries. He is warm and informative and communicates well. My surgeries each went very well and so did my healing process. I have come to trust him as my "go-to" orthopedic guy.
