“After rupturing my Achilles the week before, I was lucky enough to get in very quickly and schedule the surgery. I was very pleased with the outcome and the service and treatment I received from Dr. Messmer and the staff at Skagit Northwest Orthopedics. I now refer friends and acquaintances whenever anyone has a need.”

“I was seen by Dr. Bullock in July of 2016 to discuss an injury to my right Achilles tendon. Dr. Bullock was very thorough in describing the different treatment options that were available based on my wants and needs going forward. I will be seeing Dr. Bullock again and am looking forward to discussing other options. The staff at Skagit Northwest Orthopedics have been friendly and professional at all of my visits.”

“I see Dr. Oates four times a year. He is a wonderful doctor! I have recommended him to other friends of mine who have had absolutely great results with his work. I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Oates! I get great relief in my shoulder and my knees as a result of seeing him....when I otherwise would be totally immobile! Thank you, Dr. Oates, for such great service and relief from chronic pain.”
– Carol C.
Treating Doctor: Kenneth M. Oates, MD
“I've seen Dr. Hanesworth and Dr. Shafer also. Dr. Hanesworth also treated my husband Dallas, a few years prior to my becoming a patient.  What can I say?  There are not enough complimentary terms to describe my care from beginning to end.  They are terrific!  My experience has been nothing but positive and I would not hesitate, nor have I hesitated to refer someone needing orthopedic care to Skagit Northwest.  I have two knee replacements by Dr. Hanesworth and a badly broken upper arm repaired by Dr. Shafer.  In each case I was given the best care possible anywhere.  We are so fortunate to have physicians of this quality in our area.  I know by reputation there are others that are terrific as well. I could write all day but let this  suffice for now.  Skagit Northwest Orthopedics is the place where we, my husband and I, place our orthopedic trust.”
