“I had a right knee total replacement done in Douglas, WY. The knee component was the wrong size. This was confirmed by Dr. Allaire in Casper. Dr. Allaire told me the only way to cure this was another surgery. I had the right knee total replacement revision surgery in June. I had talked with Dr. Allaire about the ongoing pain three or four months after the revision replacement and we had discussed a possible knee scope to eliminate some of the soft tissue on the outside of the knee where the pain was concentrated. Upon further talk we decided to wait. Also, let it be known that I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Smith. This replacement is doing GREAT. I am aware that the hip does not have the movement that a knee does so obviously it will not have the complication factor that a replaced knee can have.
Bottom line.....Would I recommend these surgeons.......YES!!! and I have many times.
“Great. Very caring with me, explained everything to me to were I understood him. I would recommend him to others for sure. He is a great person.”
“I wanted the best and he certainly is that. Dr. Smith is very talented, very professional, and very compassionate. He understood my fears and concerns and took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I don't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a hip replacement.”
“Dr. Allaire is a soft-spoken, easy-going, and friendly guy but extremely competent surgeon possessing a high degree of professionalism. I am very happy with the reverse shoulder replacement procedure he performed recently. Although I have only had limited visits with him (short follow-up appointments) I enjoy every opportunity to interact and learn from our discussions. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a competent and highly skilled surgeon. Keep up the great orthopedic service!”
“Dr. Yakel is the best. This was my first surgery ever. He explained everything to me and was very patient. He and the staff were and are very caring. I have never been to any doctor and staff that acually care about you so much. This is one of the best places ever. I love everyone there and thank them so very much for everything they have done for me . THANK YOU !!!!”
“I received excellent and professional care.”
“Right from the get go I liked Dr. Gorman. He is a very honest doctor and I would use him again without hesitation.”
“We cannot say enough good about Dr. Allaire! I had dealt with my hip issue for over 30 years with a constant run around by one VA doctor to the next. Once I was approved for the Choice Program I was sent to see Dr. Allaire. After careful examination of the area, MRI's and even an injection into the area he took on the task of "undoing" what had been done over 30 years ago. I've never felt better nor been able to move so well since he took cleaned up the bone, realigned the tendons and muscle. He is kind, caring and listened to what both my wife and I said to him. He took the time each and every time to listen to our questions, and answer them. If I ever need to have orthopedic surgery again, I would definately come back to Dr. Allaire.”
“Dr. Allaire is always positive, optimistic and realistic about the prognosis for my 2" rotator cuff tear. He was also optimistic about the surgery and my prospects for recovery with significant physical therapy following surgery. He and his excellent staff provided a thorough explanation of the procedure and prepped me for the big day. I asked for "lots of pictures" and I received them, permitting me to see my rotator cuff repairs and bicep tendonesis repairs as they were executed. Also the cleanup and removal of bone spurs and scar tissue. Dr. Allaire transitioned me to the PT side of the house. Their care and program are tailored to my needs and condition at that moment. They advance me when appropriate and whenever I ask for an additional stretch or strengthening exercise, they keep it coming. I very much appreciate their attention to detail, collection of data and solid communication. Also, all of the Physical Therapists I have worked with continually help me keep the best form for each stretch or exercise. It takes me several sessions to get the right form for most new stretches or exercises and these folks help me get it right. I have received excellent PT services and just generally enjoy being in their shop.”
“Dr. Allaire was very professional and courteous. Explained the situation very thoroughly.”
