"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." - Polly B.
