“Dr. Borchard is the best. He did my hip replacement surgery three years ago. I will not see any other doctor but him!”
"Dr. Griggs is awesome - he cares, listens, and answers all my questions. Dr. Borchard is my other doctor for my knee, and he is very good as well. Nurses are very professional and very nice. Thank you!"
"I met with Dr. Grant and Dr. Sielatycki, both are truly knowledgeable. The team at CAO is outstanding, they go beyond, and I experienced genuine care, compassion, and communication not only from the nursing and operating room staff."
"Rachael and the staff at the front desk are absolutely awesome. Rachael was and is so sweet and down to earth. She and the staff really make you feel comfortable and cared for. Thank you all so much! These folks are like diamonds in the rough! God Bless!"
“When I see Dr. Borchard's name on an incoming patient's prescription I instantly get excited because I know that my job is going to be much easier from start to finish. I am able to focus on the patient's individual goals (hiking, biking, fishing, gardening, horseback riding, getting on the floor to play with their grandkids) earlier than ever before. ”
"I've been a Physical Therapist in the Outpatient Orthopedic setting for nearly 10 years and in that time, I have rehabilitated hundreds of total knee replacements. Dr. Kevin Borchard and his team have by far exceeded the expectations I've seen in patients over the years. His patients show up to their first therapy session in less pain and with more motion than any patients I have ever seen. They can stop using their crutches, walker or cane much earlier than I ever thought possible!"
“Even with my health concerns, my knee surgery went extremely well, and recovery was better than expected. It is with great pleasure that I acknowledge the excellent work of Dr. Kevin Borchard and his staff. The entire Ortho team did a terrific job helping me before, during, and after surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Borchard and his team to anyone needing joint repair or replacement.”
“You will not get better care, and you won’t get better outcomes, than you get right here with Dr. Borchard in Meeker.”
