The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Prevost.

"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!" – Roxanne T.    
"I was well advised about the total knee replacement surgery and the follow-up was phenomenal by Dr. Prevost and his PA. My expectations were high and I was not disappointed." – David D. 
"Best doctor in Alaska" – Gerald and Judy B. 
"Dr. Prevost and his team have performed an outstanding job in reconstructing an artificial knee and allowing me to be pain free and walking again." – Ulrike J. 
"I am very pleased with the quick medical attention I received from Dr. Prevost's assistant. Her attention to detail for my immediate need for relief was very much appreciated. I would recommend them highly to anyone seeking Orthopedic medical attention." – Marcia L. 
"Dr. Prevost is very informative. He did a great job on my shoulder replacement. The office is very pleasant and comfortable and the staff is very nice." – Todd D.    
"I have seen Dr. Prevost 2011 and he has treated me with the utmost respect he did knee replacement on me on my right knee and now I'm getting ready to do hip replacement surgery on both hips. My father told me as long as I trusted him on my knee replacement surgery I should give him the utmost respect to do my hips. I couldn't have asked a better doctor than Dr. Prevost and his assistant Alana Hendrickson. I would recommend this doctor and have to several of my friends that are having problems with their hips and knees." – Tracy A. 
"I had a double knee replacement early March and it's one of the best things I've ever done. Dr. Prevost did an amazing job and gave me my life back. I'm 12 weeks post op and I can truly say it wasn't that bad. I'm still doing physical therapy. I believe that helps in your recovery. Thank you Dr. Prevost and thank you to his staff. They've been a big help. Kudos to AK Regional also. Their staff was amazing!" – Liz T. 
"Thank you!!! For the professionalism" – Rodney E. 
"Dr. Pevost did my TKR on February 18. At the time I was very scared about the pain and infection. He reassured me about the infections risks, made me very aware of the blood clot risks and the necessity to move and keep moving after surgery, and along with the anesthesiologist found a workaround to a severe allergy I have to local anesthetics that allowed me to have a nerve block where I otherwise would not have been able. Because of thorough preparation and information prior to surgery, though painful as expected, I felt I came out of it knowledgeable about my part in the healing process. I really worked at doing my PT early and often, I was walking a mile a day within 3 weeks and have kept that up along with losing some weight. All of these factors combined to really accelerate my recovery and I think Dr. Prevost was very pleased with my success and willingness to put the effort in after being given all the pertinent information by him and his very professional staff all the way thru this process. I've since recommended him to several friends in need of TKR's and in fact my husband is having a hip replacement at the end of June by him. Thank you for the good service and giving me back the ability to be mobile and enjoy life again." – Karen N. 
"I had to have a total hip replacement revision. Dr. Prevost was an excellent doctor and I am so happy with the care I received from him. The previous hip replacement was failing and Dr. Prevost's expertise on the revision was very comforting. I would not like to repeat this experience but I am thankful that Dr. Prevost and his team preformed my revision." – William W.
"Over the past few years, Dr. Prevost has replaced both of my knees and one shoulder. In all instances the surgery was very successful and the end result has given me an extended active life, free of pain and the other maladies that slow a person in their 70's down. The team procedure is exemplary and the experience was very satisfactory." – Terry M. 
"Left and right shoulders have been repaired by Dr. Prevost...excellent care ... I am recommending him to family and friends" – Daniel K. 
"I did my home work! Which included references from several people in the medical field and former patients. This is how I ended up in Dr. Prevosts office and have a return visit planned." - Larry G.
"After a pain specialist on the Kenai Peninsula determined that I had a fracture in my hip, I was referred to Dr. Prevost for an appointment. I found Dr. Prevost to be very professional and extremely knowledgeable regarding my medical problem. I received a total hip replacement in October, 2015. My recovery was a bit long, but I found Dr. Prevost and the staff at Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic to be very helpful and sensitive to my medical needs. After approximately six months since my surgery, my hip seems to be functioning pretty normal. I also was so pleased that after the hip replacement, both of my hips seem to be perfectly matched. I understand that is sometimes quite difficult to achieve. I prefer Dr. Prevost and his team to continue to meet any medical needs that I may need in the future. In my opinion, I found Dr. Prevost to be the best possible surgeon available in Alaska for my problem. I am so pleased and very thankful that he works and lives in our state!"  - Jean H.
"Our experience with you all was a great one. I went in for two knee replacements. Dr. Prevost talked with our insurance company personally. They did not want to pay for them. He talked with them and shared why I needed them. They agreed to pay for my left knee only and an injection for my right one. My left knee was the worst. I have had my two week and six week visits and was very pleased with Dr. Prevost's assistant and the P.A., Alana Hindrikson. They looked after me after the surgery and continue to do so. My three month appointment with Dr. Prevost is at the end of April. In our experience we have never had a doctor call the insurance company and fight for their patient. We appreciate what Dr. Prevost did for us. I have and will continue to recommend Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic to everyone. Thank you for your service." - Dave and Debbie M.
"Bilateral knee replacements. Surgery went well. PT going well. Great experience at Regional Hospital. Happy to finally get surgery." – Elizabeth T.
"Just a bi-annual checkup following full hip replacement surgery. The surgery and recuperation, 5 years ago, went well, and I have been extremely satisfied with my ability to maintain an active lifestyle ever since. The follow-up appointments have been informative and handled quite professionally." – William P. 
"Five years ago Dr. Prevost replaced both of my knees. The operations were both overwhelming successes. I no longer am haunted with stifling pain and I can pretty much walk and hike as I did in my youth. This past November Dr. Prevost replaced my left shoulder. Again the operation went without a hitch, even though it was a little more detailed than the knee surgery. The Prevost staff and surgery team are very well coordinated and are trained to meet all post surgery needs quickly and professionally. It would be an understatement to say that I am satisfied patient. I am a very thankful patient." – Terry M.
"Excellent medical care for hip replacement" – Beverly M.  
"I'm an active year-round cyclist and skier, and have survived a couple of decades of daily Alaskan adventures with only minor bumps and bruises. Unfortunately, this year's ice and a moment of inattention got the better of me, and I suffered a badly broken collar bone in a fat bike crash. Dr. Prevost saw me on the day of my crash and was able to work me into his surgical schedule the next day, and did a good job of installing a plate and screws to hold all the pieces together. My shoulder felt a lot better after the surgery and I was off of the pain meds in just a few days, and my recovery is progressing very well. I'm not yet cleared to be back on the bike, but am looking forward to a full recovery and being back on the bike this spring. I appreciate the good care that Dr. Prevost and your staff have provided." – Scott D. 
"Thirty years ago I separated my left shoulder and over those years it slowly deteriorated and had to be replaced. Dr. Prevost did a wonderful job and I have much less pain than prior to the surgery. I am completely satisfied with my care and treatment." – Todd D. 
"After dealing with increasing pain from arthiritis for 10 years, I finally decided it was time to do something about my hip. I have never had elective surgery before, so naturally there were some concerns. I am an active woman and although I realize I am getting older, I am not ready to accept the constant use of a cane just to walk across my living room. After some research I found AFOC and Dr. Prevost. I made some phone calls and found the staff at the clinic very helpful and compassionate. After my initial consultation with Dr. Prevost, an appointment time was scheduled and arrangements were made for my drive to Anchorage and my post-op care. The success of my hip replacement by Dr. Prevost has changed my life. No pain for the first time in years, no cane and finally a good night's sleep. Although I had friends tell me how much I would love my new hip, I truly had no idea the impact it would have on my life. I was so impressed by AFOC I returned 3 months later to take care of the carpal  tunnel problem with my right hand. Fantastic!! The quality, professionalism, and compassion of everyone at Anchorage Fracture and Orthopedic  Clinic has given me a new lease on life. I can never thank you enough Dr. Prevost and your amazing staff." – Andrea S.
"I appreciate Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic and Dr. Prevost for always providing courteous, professional, and complete care for my hip and joint issues.  My dealings with all the staff always leaves me knowing that I'm being well taken care of, my concerns are taken seriously, and my questions are always answered. The greatest compliment a patient can give is referrals, and I am always happy to refer friends, family, and co-workers to Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic." -- Rhonda L.
"I have been seeing the staff at Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic as a patient since 1997. Dr. Ryan has given me two new knees, my right in 1997, and my left in 2011. He also performed a hip replacement for my left hip in 2010, which unfortunately was recalled by the manufacturer only a few years later in 2012. In 2013, Dr. Prevost removed the recalled hip implant and gave me a second new hip. Also in 2013, Dr. Prevost did a total shoulder replacement on my right shoulder. Dr. Prevost then did a total shoulder replacement on my left shoulder in 2014. Not to be outdone, Dr. Peterson repaired significant degradation in my lower lumbar spine to correct severe arthritic and disc damage. He was also able to correct nerve impairment in my right hand in 2014, which was caused by the extensive use of crutches in the past several years. I cannot forget the great PA-C's, who were always there to help me, especially David Wonchala, Glen Welker, and Kimberly Hand.  After each of these procedures, I was skillfully guided to a sound recovery by the wonderful staff at the Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic physical therapy offices.  Thanks to the able hands and skill of Annette Rohde, Yasmin Lechtenberg, and Holly McClure, I had terrific guidance on how to get back to daily activity. I can't say enough about the caring and kindness each of the nurses and office staff showed in my many visits. The doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, physical therapists, and office staff are my favorite people. Without them, I have no idea how miserable my life would have been. I can never thank you enough." -- David S.
