Dr. Althausen presents with a calm and compassionate manner, which was quite comforting during an unexpected, traumatic lower extremity fracture. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions with the utmost patience. I have already recommended Dr. Althausen to others, and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence.
in Santa Rosa, CA |
I consider myself very lucky to have Dr. Althausen perform the surgery when breaking my femur. The procedure went flawlessly and was not invasive. He instills confidence with his positive and uplifting energy which is greatly needed when you are going through a traumatic situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Althausen.
Fractured patella Provided two options. I had surgery and very happy
