“Dr. Thomas has a great sense of humor and tremendous compassion for his patients. He was always honest and thoughtful in discussing my injury with me, and made me feel comfortable with some of the tough new realties that would follow. Injuries and accidents can be tough, and making a decision like amputation should never be considered lightly. Dr. Thomas knows this and was a perfect healthcare professional. His treatment style, professionalism, expertise, and humor make him a real asset for AFOC and for the Anchorage community.”

“I had total right knee replacement on November 9, 2016. Dr. Ryan was excellent. Prior to the surgery, he explained everything to me and told me that this would be a difficult recovery from this surgery. I was well prepared for the difficulty of this recovery. It has been the most difficult recovery from all of the surgeries I have had. Dr. Ryan took special care to make sure my knee was free from infection before and after surgery. Now after three months, with most of the recovery behind me, I can finally say that the surgery was worth it. I followed Dr. Ryan's suggestions and also the recommendations of my physical therapist. My knee no longer has pain with every step I take. It will take another 9 months for my recovery to be complete. I am grateful for the expert care from Dr. Adrian Ryan and the rest of the staff at Anchorage Fracture and Orthopedic Clinic.”

“I've actually seen both Dr Peterson and Dr Ryan. They are professional yet very compassionate. Dr Ryan replaced my right hip this past Dec. I'm extremely pleased! Dr Peterson will be performing bilateral laminectomy on me this Feb 27. I expect I will be extremely pleased with the results as well.”

“He, Tonya, Jennie and the rest of his staff were super supportive, timely and attentive. Will you be sending another "share" so I can remark about the PT staff? In case not...the PT staff was terrific! I especially enjoyed their friendly "take no prisoners" approach to ensuring I did my many exercise's correctly and effectively. And they had good fun laughing at my many feeble attempts to master the "Spazz Bow" Heather was my PT. She is first class! Both she and Greg stand correct...as they said would happen, every few weeks I realize I can again do something I couldn't months ago. Thanks to all. Five stars for PT too.”

“Every thing went well with my knee replacement and it is mending well. I just had to slow down enough not to over do it and let it heal on it's own speed.”
– John F.

I'm a bit late commenting on your service. That's because 3 weeks after Brad's excellent work I sailed away from valdez per usual not to return till mid nov. no email or web access during that period. 1st test of the repaired knee came 3 days later - my 1st new pk summited for '16. 4 wk to day surgery I reached a grand summit which I had to kick steps in the snow & ice to reach the ascent. the knee performed painlessly thru all & continued strengthening thru the season till its once again stronger than the other - future. meanwhile back where I belong sailing & climbing the waters & mts of prince William sound. much thanks to Brad & Team

“"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." - Vickie M.”

“"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." - Charlee G.”
