Patient Testimonials

I had a full reverse shoulder replacement of my right shoulder in October. Dr. Hoellrich and his whole staff made me very comfortable by explaining everything to me including limitations after. In all I am very glad I had it done and can still do all the things I did before. It is great not to have that constant pain I had before. I would also like to say that before Dr. Lamoreaux came to Slocum she was my shoulder Dr. at Peace Health and she was great with me and also encouraged me to get the replacement done. Thank you to Slocum, Dr. Hoellrich and Dr. Lamoreaux!

Unbelievably well done total left shoulder replacement. Worst pain was constipation from pain pills, which was changed. Surgical scar is very faint, movement is great and no pain. Your staff, and hospital staff did great work. As you can see, I can't say enough. Thank you.

I did not have to wait to have the exray, and shortly after doctor came in to review and explain X-rays with me. Doctor took time to answe questions. Good experience!

I had planned to go to Portland for my shoulder replacement, but once I met Dr. Hoellrich and he answered my questions, I knew that he should be my doctor. Everything went fine, and on my one-year check-up he said that I had done so well on my rehab that I was "in the 99th percentile" of the shoulder replacements he had done.  Only eight months after my shoulder replacement, I had to have extensive repair of my other shoulder.  But this one was an arthroscopic surgery and could be performed at the Slocum Surgery Center. Compared to the hospital experience, the surgery-center surgery was like going on vacation. I was in and out in about four hours, there was very little waiting, and everybody was so nice.

I felt like he was a good listener and very knowledgeable of the shoulder.
