Very good, top notch!

Dr. Mentzer came highly recommended by Dr. Ryan, who worked on my knee. My whole experience with him was great. From diagnosis through post op he was patient and thorough answering my questions. He took extra time before the surgery to speak with my wife and assuage her worries about putting in a new thumb joint. His staff was totally professional and got back to me quickly on messages left with them. They were a great help in arranging the surgery in a tight time frame and kind and thorough every time I dealt with them. Diagnosis, x-rays, MRI's, surgery, and post-op all in one place. They all work with you to make something like this the best experience possible.

Great and credible doctor!

I was referred to see Dr. Mentzer for a WC injury. The appointment was made the day after I called, the surgery was one week after that and the follow up care has been amazing. Dr. Mentzer takes time to explain all of the details of the injury, the possible causes and how to fix them. His bedside manner was wonderful - he is very professional and takes the time to treat patients with great care. He certainly did a fantastic job helping me fix my injury and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking care for orthopedic issues in the Anchorage area. Dr. Mentzer provides a level of care you won't get at any other practice in town - you are not a number being pushed out the door to make the doctor money but a real patient. I feel blessed that I got the referral to see Dr. Mentzer.

Dr. Mentzer listens! and knows his stuff!

After a mis-diagnosis and mis-treatment at another clinic in Anchorage, I sought the help of Dr. Mentzer. I am so relieved I did. He took the time to listen to my story and the treatment (wrong treatment) I had received to date, following a MVA 6 months ago. After paying attention to what I was saying, doing an exam that didn't cause more pain, Dr. Mentzer went over my xrays with me. He saw what 2 other doctors and 1 orthopedic PA missed- quickly and easily. Thanks to Dr. Mentzer, I can now get the right treatment for my injury because now I know what the actual injury is. He was very reassuring, heard what I was saying, was compassionate and didn't rush through the appointment. Highly, highly recommended.
