Patient Comments (2)

Well trained, but not a very good listener. Needed additional surgery after, which could have been done sooner and saved a lot of trouble if Dr. Mortensen had listened.

Dr. Mortensen was kind, thorough, understanding, knowledgeable, and capable of doing my difficult torn rotator cuff. It is obvious he's had much experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
