    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.

    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.

    Very professional and competent. Repaired two hernias laproscopically with no complications, quick recovery time and very little pain.
