Patient Comments (1)
Cheyenne, WY |
He misdiagnosed a bad hip, sending me to PT for treatment for arthritis of the back and saying my hip was fine. When my pain continued to worsen I finally sought a second opinion and the doctor was appalled that my x-ray and MRI had been misread. Had hip replacement in Ft Collins and another orthopedic surgery to correct the damage done by Dr Torkelson.
