Very competent and very patient focused. I would recommend Dr Poulsen to anyone. He has done one of my knees and one of my shoulders and is about ready to do the other shoulder. My knee and my shoulder that he has operated on are as good as new (and maybe even better).

Its not worth the risk to your health. I received permanent damaged from his procedures. Ill be a a bit detailed so you can understand why i say that. I got ACL surgery with dr poulsen a few years ago. It was infected the day I got home from surgery, which tells me everything wasnt sterile. I could tell it was from the heat, inflammation and smell, but poulsen insisted it wasnt. Later he put me on antibiotics and it went away, but only after I had to be rushed to the hospital on an ambulance. M

After injuring my knee skiing, Dr. Poulsen was recommended to me by my Physical Therapist. I am so happy with the care I received from Dr. Poulsen. I had a complicated injury that most Surgeons would have made a large incision to repair. Dr. Poulsen was able to correct the problem using a scope and I have minimal scarring. I am now two years post-op and have been able to return to the ski slopes because of the fantastic care and skill Dr. Poulsen gave me.

Dr. Poulsen is great! He took time to really understand my symptoms and to look at all the imaging I had done. He is a very skilled surgeon and was able to fix my knee problems. Dr. Poulsen takes time to explain everything, is very kind, and is great to work with!
