Patient Reviews

You are here

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 have been seeing Dr. John Lapkass for approximately 6 years. I was recommended by a friend to see him for my shoulder pain. I have also seen him for hip pain and most recently underwent a partial knee replacement.  Dr. Lapkass has always been polite, professional, and takes the time to answer any questions you might have, and I like to ask them. I feel we have a good doctor/patient relationship and I have the utmost trust and confidence in him and his staff.”

  • “Dr. Prevost was the surgeon for my left reverse shoulder replacement and I haven't had any pain or problems! It was in October 2013 and I never had to take a single pain pill until two weeks after surgery. I, as well as Dr. Prevost, was so surprised to see that I could bring my arm past 90 degrees. It was so marvelous and this ole' arm is just cranking away better than ever. My right hip replacement was not the easiest, but everything turned out great. Dr. Prevost is awesome.”

  • “In February 2015, I had a ski accident at Alyeska helping with the UAA Ski Team. Dr. Mentzer was the doctor on site, in Girdwood, and followed me to Providence. He was one of the most concerned and helpful doctors/surgeons I have had the pleasure to know. I would like to thank him for what he did to help me through a broken hip and dislocated shoulder/torn labrum. He was able to get surgery scheduled for my hip the day after my accident with Dr. Prevost (who is also an amazing surgeon in my opinion.) And then Dr. Mentzer did my shoulder surgery about a month later. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Mentzer and Dr. Prevost. THANKS!”

  • “My shoulder was bone on bone. One could hear the bones rubbing together and the pain was constant. I am now 9 months post surgery and have full use of my shoulder.”

  • “Dr. Mentzer has been wonderful through three different surgeries (bi-lateral carpal tunnel, locked trigger thumb and then two locked trigger fingers on the right hand) and I trust him with the next two I'll need on the left hand. Nurses are super nice, proficient, and apparently totally enjoy their jobs! This says a lot. Zachary Ritter, P.A.-C. is fantastic working with Dr. Mentzer (and loves his job there! He said Dr. Mentzer is so nice to work with). All have been great with excellent treatment professionally and on a personal/patient relationship level. ”

  • “He and his team are amazing. I am back on my feet and enjoying my life again. This summer I was gardening again as well as going places with friends. Just the simple pleasure of cooking and cleaning my house without pain or being laid up for days after was amazing. My attendance at work has improved 100% because not am I only able to walk without pain but also I am starting to loose weight due to activity which is helping with health issues. My family doctor is very impressed with my currently labs and we are working to eliminate medication soon. Thank you so much for giving my enjoyment and pain free life back!”
