Hello, I had a very positive experience at Ortho Nebraska. I was very impressed with Dr. Kumagai. He explained things to me and took the necessary steps to hopefully put me in a... in a better position with my my knees. Anyway, I appreciate all your efforts and I'm looking forward to ...working with you in the future. Thank you very much. Bye.

My day nurse did not seem capable of doing her job. At one point I waited over an hour for my pain killers, and she seemed as though she didn't know what was going on. I told her my dressing was to be changed before I was discharged, and, while looking at my discharge papers, she said 'no, they weren't to be changed for a week' I explained that was after discharge, so she looked at my chart. I also had to ask for my (tylenol ?) IV that she kept forgetting. She was very nice, but I do not think she should be caring for people after surgery. My night nurse, Vanessa, was great. She was on top of everything, knew exactly what she was doing, and very professional, all while being very kind and caring.
