Shortly after I fractured my left elbow in a fall on 5/18/17, I was referred to the Hand To Shoulder Center of Wisconsin by an orthopedic physician. Once the Shoulder Center was referred to me, the center wasted NO time in calling me! Krista, Dr. Cullen’s nurse, immediately arranged for me to have a CT scan to supplement the x-rays taken in the emergency room on 5/18. Krista and the billing staff were able to cut through all of the red tape with my insurance company and my CT scan was approv

This is the nicest, most personable surgeon I've ever met. He took care of both of my hands and I am seeing him soon for my shoulder. Prior to my appointment, but after reviewing my MRI and X-ray results, he took the time to write me a quick letter. Who does that?? I do not mind waiting to see him during my scheduled appointment time; I know he'll be spending as much time as I need with me too!
