    Dr. Larsen is one of the best surgeons I've had treat my injury. He was very involved and caring of my situation; severe hand injury. I was very impressed with his bedside manner and compassion. He explained my injury in detail by drawing it on paper. His PA. Stephanie, is also amazing. She cares more than any provider I've had experience with. His MA, Bri, also, amazing. Just a great experience in every way. Highly recommend this surgeon. Amazing results and an amazing team

    When I first met Dr. Larsen, my husband was with me and it was short. He simply told me I needed to have 4 bones removed from my wrist, calling it unstable. I needed a little time to process this info, so about a week later we both returned with a lengthy list of questions. The office seemed busy, but Dr. Larsen patiently and completely addressed all of my concerns and I'm very pleased my wrist is again stable and I have a very good range of motion. Love his unique and quite sense of humor!
