    Dr. Mortensen was great. In a very short time he completely solved a knee problem with which I had been struggling for over a month of physical therapy (from another medical office). He did this by knowing exactly the cause of the problem and giving a cortisone shot in precisely the right place. I am grateful to him and also to my friend [...] for recommending him to me.

    Dr. Mortensen & his staff are courteous, professional, efficient, & thorough and I wouldn't go to any other orthopedist. He fixed my shoulder (rotator cuff) 19 years ago and I have 100% range of motion and NO residual problems.
