Superior Surgical Care

I found Dr. Uggen to be forthright and easy to talk to. He explained everything so that I was comfortable with what was happening with my situation. I was having my entire shoulder replaced after an accident, and everything went exactly as he said if would, all the way thru to recovery. I could not have been more pleased with the results. After I recuperated, I trusted him enough to undergo rotator cuff surgery on my other shoulder, something I had dreaded for years. It was a walk in the park compared to the first surgery and I wish I had taken care of it years ago. Again, the same great care throughout the entire process from beginning to end.
