Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Rasmussen is a skilled surgeon who cares about his patients. He has made himself available for questions, concerns, and great follow up care.
in Heber City, UT |
Found Dr. Rasmussen and his EXCELLENT Nurse "Laura" via a ton of research. I needed to have a Nissen Wrap redone due to a recurrent Hiatial Hernia, and massive heartburn/GERD. Very easy to work with and lots of experience in his field. Still recovering at home but ZERO Heartburn. Very happy with my surgery.
in Vineyard, UT |
Dr. Rasmussen came highly recommended to us. As I waited to be taken in for my Cancer surgery, another doctor that did a knee replacement walked by. He stopped and was sad for what I was going through but commented that he has Dr. Rasmussen do any surgery he needs done. That is as good of a recommendation that one can ever hear. I had my surgery and was told that I would need pain pills when the epidural wore off. I have a very low threshold for pain---But needed none at all. Very Skilled.
in Springville , UT |
Dr.Rasmussen is an extremely caring and knowledgeable physician. He has performed two surgeries for me and I was given the best treatment and am very thankful to have him as my physician. He is very approachable and professional.
in Provo, ut |
Very professional and competent. Repaired two hernias laproscopically with no complications, quick recovery time and very little pain.
