Care Philosophy

Patient Focused - My practice gives me the opportunity to employ patient-centered care.  One of my favorite slogans is that "I treat patients, not X-rays".  This slogan means that while the diagnosis between two patients may be the same, the patients may require entirely different treatment based on their preferences, work, hobbies, interests and lifestyles.  I tailor each patient's treatment on an individual basis.

Patient Education - I believe that a well-informed, educated patient is essential to make good medical decisions resulting in outstanding medical outcomes.  Therefore, I encourage patients to ask questions, and I take the time necessary to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options.

Passion - Confucius said "choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."  I am passionate about hand and upper extremity orthopedic surgery.  I hope this passion is palpable to my patients and medical colleagues.

Service - In treating patients, my primary goal is to serve.  I chose to pursue a career in medicine so that I could use what talents I have to serve others.

High Value - Value is the current buzz of the medical industry.  Value is directly related to both the quality and cost of the care a patient.  We have to be attentive to both the quality and cost when making medical and surgical decisions.

Dr. Unruh did my wrist surgery. He has taken the time to answer all my questions and explain procedures/treatment plans. His bedside manner is excellent. He genuinely cares for his patients and is involved in every step of the treatment/recovery process. His assistant Robin and associated hand therapists are wonderful too!

I can't say enough about the quality of care I received from Dr. Unruh. He was so sweet, kind and professional. I truly had a great experience when it came to the surgery he performed on my finger. He explained the procedure so I could understand exactly what he would be doing. I would recommend his services to anyone! "Thank you Dr. Unruh"! Debbie Wise
