Dr. Aadalen repaired my left rotator cuff before Tria was established. He seened caring and sincere. Two years later at newly created Tria, he repaired my right rotator cuff. I returned a few months later with issues. After long waits (including him chatting up nurses outside my exam room) he seemed indifferent to my problems and said if I had any more issues don't return - call his assistant. Difference? I had private insurance for first surgery and Medicare for second. Money talks...

I went to Dr. Aadalen for both my ACL/MCL tear and my torn labrum. Both surgeries have far exceeding my expectations in recovery time and mobility. There are additional repairs I would like completed on my other shoulder and knee and will definitely be returning to Dr. Aadalen.

Dr Aadalen repaired my torn rotator cuff in 2013. He did am amazing job! Throughout, he made sure I understood what needed to happen for the procedure to be a success. I regained full range of motion, full strength and have had no problems since. Tria was fast, efficient and patient focused

Not helpful - said my middle finger on my right hand was fractured - told him I was in pain - said I'd just have to deal with it - really? $250 for that?!
