    He is an EXCELLENT physician. I have seen him twice personally over the past 7 years. My husband had a meniscus tear repaired by him...excellent results, and my mother had knee replacement with him...same....so I know he is a great surgeon as well. I have not had surgery but he did a steroid injection into my knee for arthritis flare up and I did not even feel the injection! More importantly his bedside manner is comforting and not condescending. I am a VERY nervous patient and I felt calm a

    I had both knee replacement last year and I could not have asked for a better surgeon and team then dr hormel,Teresa,and Julie. It has been six months for my right knee and 3months for my left knee. I was walking the other day and I was walking normal with no pain which had not been the case in 10 years. It was amazing. I highly highly recommend dr hormel. As long as you do exactly as instructed followed by physical therapy your out come should be fantastic. Thank you dr hormel for new knees

    I have had several orthoscopic knee surgeries with Hormel and finally a total knee replacement. He never oversold what the results would be and I fully respect that. It's up to the individual to put forth the effort, with Physical Therapy, to accomplish the desired recovery. It's just a matter of time before I have the other knee done, and there is no other doctor I would consider. :-)

    I had patellae tendon surgery with Dr. Hormel and then saw him four times in followup. I give him the highest rating. Great surgeon with very good patient relations. His confidence not only helped me through surgery but afterwards in a long rehabilitation process. Have already recommended him to others
