At Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic, we understand the importance of patient reviews and testimonials, so we share the following with you from our previous patients. As we continue to strive for orthopedic excellence, we measure our success and ask our current patients to share their experiences with you as well. 

  • “I had put off a needed surgery for a lot of years. As a result, I needed two surgeries, one in August for my knee, and a hip replacement in Oct. Dr. Ryan always thoroughly explained my conditions, and took my direction by not pushing surgery immediately. He told me I would know when it had to be done, and he was correct. His nurse Carol is also excellent. She gets back to phone calls in a timely manner, helps however she can, and is pleasant. I have had no complications with either surgery, which gives me confidence in Dr. Ryan as well. I very much appreciate the billing department handling all the administrative issues that are involved, including the FMLA paperwork. It is one less thing to worry about, so the patient can focus on healing and therapy. The physical therapy department has also been extremely helpful, and is always pleasant with scheduling, etc. My therapist, Annette is awesome. She is very in tune to the patient needs, and pushes when necessary for the best outcome.”

  • “I met Dr. Sparks in the ER following a motorcycle accident that caused several breaks to my left femur and left hand. From the very beginning, Dr. Sparks helped me to understand all the details relating to the fractures and what was being done with surgery and physical therapy. He always took the time to listen and explain, sometimes repeatedly. I always felt he was on my side, and worked tirelessly to save not only my leg, but my life as well, due to complications in my case. I trusted Dr. Sparks immediately, and never felt comfortable until he was the surgeon that scrubbed in and headed to the OR with me. I have complete confidence in his formidable skills and respect him both as a surgeon and person. Dr. Sparks is compassionate, caring, and personable, treating the whole person, not just an orthopedic "case." I am blessed that he was in the right place when I needed him most, and he headed the team in my full recovery. There are no words to adequately describe my gratitude or my faith in him, so I'll close with a simple "thank you Dr. Sparks," and my wholehearted recommendation. You just cant find anyone better.”

  • “After seeing several doctors about issues I was having with my hand and shoulder, I was referred to Dr. Mentzer. I decided to have Dr. Mentzer perform surgery on my hand and shoulder. I cannot express how happy I am that I choose Dr. Mentzer. Both of my surgeries were a complete success. Him and his staff are friendly, accommodating, and truly professional. I would recommend anyone having hand or shoulder problems to consult with Dr. Mentzer and his staff. Thank you.”

  • “I came to Dr. Mentzer with a fractured wrist, which the ER doctor recommended him. Dr. Mentzer has been wonderful. He and his staff are wonderful and very professional. Dr. Mentzer performed surgery on April 22nd, and did an amazing job. The work he did on my wrist and forearm was extensive and complex. I can barely see the scar. I continue to see Dr. Mentzer and a specialist he recommended because I developed CRPS because of my injury. He is a first-class amazing doctor, and I would gladly send any friend or family to him for treatment.”

  • “Dr. Sparks explained the problem and treatment options clearly, and answered all of my questions. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed while injecting medication into my knee. His customer service manner was welcoming. I will not hesitate to request him when making follow up appointments.”

  • “I was seen in a Providence ER in the early hours of 5/10/14. I had fallen and shattered my left wrist requiring an open reduction, which would have to wait until 5/11. The ER physician referred me to Dr. Adrian Ryan for follow up. Even the tech in the ER spoke so highly of Dr. Ryan, so before I even met with him, I already knew to expect a kind, compassionate, and caring individual, not to mention, very highly esteemed by his peers in the healthcare community. From the moment I called the office that Monday morning to schedule an appointment, I was extremely impressed by the efficiency and courtesy of the staff. I was instructed to come in immediately and informed that I would need surgery that same day. Everyone was so wonderful, and Dr. Ryan’s nurse Carol was extremely efficient and reassuring, and expedited the whole surgery scheduling process, which gave me such a sense of confidence and really calmed my fears. I definitely felt that I was in very capable hands. Every single step of the process was very smooth. Dr. Ryan spent a lot of time going over the nature of my injury, what would be done to correct it, and everything I could expect from anesthesia to recovery and beyond. I am still so impressed by everyone, both the clinic and the surgical center staff. I am happy to say that I have recovered wonderfully thanks to the hand therapy and excellent care I received from the Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic team. Thank you so much!! I happily recommend Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic to my friends for all of their orthopedics needs!!”

  • “I was diagnosed with thin cartilage in my right knee. The pain was extremely debilitating as well as excruciating. The staff at Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic fixed me up, and I am now back to work. 90% of my pain is gone. I continue therapy and treatments everyday. It will be an ongoing process, but I am very grateful to Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic for taking care of me. The staff was very caring and professional.”

  • “After a very successful neck fusion 14 years ago, I took a bad fall on the ice, and realized I needed to have things checked out. Everyone was very attentive, and I felt they really listened when I was describing my symptoms. I had fractured my neck, but Dr. Peterson was very thorough and has a wonderful, calm presence that put me at ease. The treatment plan took into account my activity level and goals, which allowed me to get on with life. They have a great team and partners to have a healthy lifestyle.”
