“Dr. Schulz. You're amazing. I'm glad we can treat these hips with meds and therapy. The older you get, the harder it is to heal. Thank you for taking the time to see me today. I appreciate you.”

“I have had multiple joints replaced by Dr. Thaxter. They were all a success. Dr. Thaxter gives all the options, explains the procedures thoroughly, and answers any questions you may have; the follow-up care is excellent. I think he is the best!”

“My hips were worn out from long distance running, truck driving, and general hard use working on a ranch. I could barely walk with the use of a cane for two years before I decided to have the hip replacements. Recovery was pretty fast; I was back to work without pain in five weeks. I drive about five hours 2-3 days per week. I had great physical therapy at Dueker Fee. I had the second hip replaced within 10 months. I did the physical therapy on my own using the lessons from the first replacement.  I have completed the 2011 and 2012 Fresno Classic Bicycle Ride (35 miles). I also completed the 2011 Grizzley Loop the Lake Bicycle Ride (25 miles with 5000 ft climb) and plan on completing the 2012 ride. I am totally happy with my replacements and highly recommend Dr. Gill to everyone I hear is having trouble with their hips or knees. My cousin, Jim Cowan, saw how good I was getting around and had his hip replaced by Dr. Gill. Everyone at the office is very friendly and courteous.”

“I was anxious about the pending hip surgery which I had on June 27th. My recovery has been without serious incident or challenge. Each time my wife or I have called with a question or concern the staff of Dr. Gil has been fabulous. The professional care and medical expertise we have received from Dr. Gill and his staff has been great. I wish now I would have pursued the hip surgery sooner than I did. The medical treatment by Dr. Gill and his staff have erased my anxieties. I look forward to a speedy and uncomplicated recovery. P.S. I want to say that the St. Agnes nursing and medical staff was also great. What a great team! Thank you.”

“My experience was great. From the very first call to set up an appointment to my consultation everyone was very friendly, courteous, professional, and communications was excellent. I felt that when I met with Dr. Gill, he already seemed to know my situation and understood what I needed to get accomplished to eliminate joint pain and to live a better life. I was really impressed with the support network from, lab work, MRI, and Fresno Surgical Hospital. My first knee replacement went great, so I had the second on replaced and after five weeks they are doing great and it's a joy to walk.”

“"Dr. Glaser did an outstanding job of repairing my severed anterior tibialis tendon. Thanks to his excellent surgical skill and the watchful care of Eric Little in physical therapy, I am experiencing a full recovery. I especially appreciated Eric's advice to take things slowly and to be patient in the healing process. His extra precautionary suggestions were crucial in my attitude and now I have full use of the foot. Thank you Sierra Pacific Orthopedics!"”

“"I had a bunionectomy in October of 2007 done by a podiatrist. Unfortunately, it was not a good experience. First of all, I felt part of the surgery. When I relayed this to the podiatrist, he told me that was not possible. When he tried to make another cut and I reacted, he believed me. Secondly, I developed an infection immediately following the surgery. He was on vacation for a week immediately following my surgery, so I had to see anther podiatrist for treatment. The results from the surgery were not satisfactory so I decided to seek additional medical advice after allowing 18 months for healing. At that point, I contacted Dr. Glaser as to what to do. In September of 2009, I decided to have surgery to repair the damage. Two screws were placed in my foot to correct the problem created by the first surgery. Fortunately, I had an uneventful recovery period - everything went, as it should. I am so thankful to Dr. Glaser, and his staff for their skill and knowledge of the foot. I have told all my friends and all who ask, if you have foot problems, do not seek assistance from anyone other that a true specialist, Dr. Glaser. One does not realize how important feet are until a problem arises. Thank you, Dr. Glaser!"”

“"Having recently retired from 35 years in education, I finally decided to check out an annoying problem with my right knee. As a former runner, and now 60, my knee ached with pain from simple walking and bending motions. After having my personal physician look at my knee, we agreed that a referral to Dr. Hanson was in order. Dr. Hanson quickly diagnosed that the cartilage in my right knee was beginning to wear thin and eventually I would need a knee replacement. In order to delay surgery, Dr. Hanson suggested OrthoVisc injections to help with the joint movement and pain. I have been receiving the injections (every three to six months) for a year and a half. It has dramatically improved my activity level and pain comfort. As an avid golfer, before the injections I would play once a week and take another week for the pain to subside. I can now play back-to-back days without taking timeout for recovery. I recently played five days straight, with the assistance of a brace made by an associate of Dr. Hanson's. All in all, the experience with Dr. Hanson and his office staff has been terrific."”
