Meriter Orthopedics Offers Exemplary Care

I want to extol the services of the Meriter Specialty Clinic, Orthopedics to be exact. I recently fractured my leg requiring surgical repair. I'm not from the Madison area so was somewhat concerned about utilizing a specialist I was not familiar with. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. David Solfelt, and I was in surgery by 5 o'clock that same afternoon. I know that I really muddied up his schedule as I was an "add on" and he was leaving for vacation the next day. 

Not once did I feel rushed by Dr. Solfelt or his staff. Actually, I felt as if I was the only patient they had. His staff is very kind, efficient and attentive; this includes Jim Armstrong, NP, Sara Bachofen, athletic trainer, and Kelsey, medical assistant. They all played a role in answering my questions and easing my anxiety with the events of the day. 

I was admitted directly to Meriter Hospital for my surgery and post op care. Once again, I have never had a hospital stay that was as pleasant. There was never a feeling of a shortage of staff that I, my friends and family have experienced elsewhere. 

The anesthesiologist and OR nurses were superb as well.

While this is not something I would want to go through again in my life, if I do I hope they're still there to serve me or my friends and family. 

My care was seamless and exemplary.
