thank god for second opions

This doctor was hardly on time getting in the office. For our appt was usually his first. It's sad that people put their health in the hands of someone that has no clue... I don't know his personal life other than he's married but he seemed as if there where tension with his nurse who would visit patients for him when the patient is paying for a specialist. Very unethical...

Poor patient care

My teenage son broke his elbow and went to ER the previous weekend. We were referred to Dr. Asperheim by our pediatric office. The administrative staff was friendly on the three phone calls prior to our appointment, the reception staff was pleasant. The nurse, or medical assistant was cool and snoody, annoyed that I didn't bring the Xrays to the appointment, despite the attempt I made to have them mailed (the ER was in another city and closed on the weekend). Turns out the Xrays did arrive, and she never returned to let me know. The doctor swooped in the room, unwrapped my son's elbow, assessed silently in his mind (because he did not explain anything to us). Based on the extension my son had, he recommended some light stretches, and a return visit in 4-5 weeks because these things heal pretty well on their own. I asked if his opinion changed, once he saw the Xrays, if he would let us know. Only then did he mention that he had reviewed the Xrays. The patient contact time was less than 10 minutes, probably more like 5 and 10. I had to ask for a note for PE, since school started in one week.

I had been to two prior orthopedic surgeons and continued to have leg pain and was unable to run. Dr. Asperheim diagnosed and treated a stress fracture and now I am back to my regular exercise routine, WITHOUT PAIN!

Exceptional doctor!

After a very short wait time Dr. Asperheim greeted me with a friendly smile, listened to my complaints, ordered xrays and provided a diagnosis that required surgery. I had outpatient surgery within 2 weeks and now my knee is great and I'm back to running marathons!
