"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!" – Chris G.
