For Dr. Geoffrey Wiedeman 6/26/2013

Sir, my name is Steven Pellicano, you did CTR surgery for me back in 1998. Again I'd like to say thank you for an amazing job of recovering for me the ability to return to my career and livelyhood. after limited duty for aprox 12 weeks or less I returned to full duty as a lead structural mechanic for the Air Force on F-16 aircraft. I was able to work full duty for over ten years 7 of which I was in charge of training riveters or sheetmetal Mechs to install the CCIP configuration on the whole fleet of Blk 40 & 50 F-16 over 700 A/C. I later developed Hyper Thinar Hammer Syndrom, and had to have arterial grafts installed in left wrist, but all is well with me. I was moved into administrative position in 08 and Now consult on Health and Safety issues for new Air Force AFMC 5 center construct; General Litchfield CC Tinker AFB. I have yet to retire from Hill AFB in utah. I'm currently the elected voice for over 6K labors here in Ut and on teams discussing disabilities issues for 36K civilian throughtout the Airforce workforce. I come to you for advice because you once told me you were an AF General, also heard you had advised the Surgeon Gen on repetive motion disorders. Not sure if you can help me but we are experiencing a large number of workers being disqualified from their careers imediatly after having this release surgery, without being given the oppertunity to fully recover. Often this is being done without EMG results, or squeez testing, mostly from pressure over compensation cost reductions. This is haveing a grave affect on hundreds of able workers who whis to continue working after rehab. If you could just give me some real recovery statistics, on the probability of this surgerys success rates, or how often complications can cause permenant restrictions. I believe we were around 50% returning to work but evry day I'm reading Dr. statements of I seen this too many time and I not willing to send you back in. Can you shed some light sir on the reality that you have experienced. That I may shear it with others. more

Great Care - Highly Recommended!! 6/1/2013

I don't know what the other posts are talking about with regard to this office and the care they provide. I have nothing but good things to say. I was really concerned about my hand when I injured it last month, but after meeting with Dr Wilson, he put me at ease. Even though I needed surgery, I felt comfortable with his recommendations and came through the whole experience very satisfied. I would recommend him and the office without any reservations more

Bad experience. 2/29/2012

Dr. Wilson made me feel very uncomfortable and akward. I would not recommend him to anyone else. more

Doctor Forest 8/30/2011

Doctor Forest has treated me twice in the last five years - once for a broken wrist and once for a broken thumb. Both times I have found her to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and considerate. Both surgeries went great, and I have actually recovered better than anticipated. I would highly recommend Doctor Forest to others. more

Office Staff 7/23/2011

I received an email from this doctor’s office on their Autoremind software. The problem is I never made an appointment and I live in Connecticut. After trying to find out what this was all about I read a review saying the “office staff was completely incompetent.” Considering that they are not very careful about whom they send reminders to I would have to agree. more

******* Great Hand Physicians!! 3/19/2011

Geoffrey Wiedeman, MD... is a great physician... I have had a right and left CPT release... looking at my hands you could never tell.. If you have hands issues the best place to go!!! more

Love them 1/21/2011

Dr. Lipson and his staff have been wonderful. I feel he really wants to figure out the cause of my pain, rather than shoving pain killers at me. The ONLY thing they can do to improve service is call me the day before my appointment. more

The WORST Experience I've Ever Had! 12/30/2009

Good: I liked absolutely nothing about this practice! The worst five months of my life dealing with them! PLEAE be very cautious, I read two bad reviews about them before going in and didn’t take them into as much consideration as I should have.. Bad: The office staff was completely incompetent and the person they like to try and call an office manager was the worst of them all. They scheduled more than one appointment with me over the phone telling me my appointment was at one time and then going to find out my appointment was at a different time. The worst had to have been when I woke up from the surgery to find out that Dr. Forrest had left and didn’t even stay to speak with me about the surgery or what she saw when she got to the tumor.. Improvements: If any improvements could be made to that office it would have to start with the front office staff and most definitely a new office manager. These people not only don’t know how to schedule appointments correctly but they can’t keep track of there charts either after misplacing mine for over two weeks and not finding it until I threatened to file a grievance with my insurance and call the news and write to the newspapers.. Other: I absolutely would never in a million years recommend any person go to this office. You will be wasting your time, find a better office, they are out there. I would rather cut my hand off then ever go back to deal with that practice ever again.. more

Outstanding Care 5/12/2009

Dr Forest was excellent in diagnosing and treating my wrist injury. The entire process was easy and the staff were very helpful and polite. I would strongly recommend this practice to anyone with a hand or wrist problem. more

Rude 3/18/2009

Everyone from the receptionist to the doctor was rude. They acted like they had no time for me. I would advise going someplace else. more

Professional and knowledgeable 2/27/2009

Dr. Lipson is knowledgeable. He could be a little more empathetic but he's professional, polite and to the point. He operated on my right hand and I had very good results. more

I too broke my wrist.... 8/4/2005

Yep, so I broke my wrist after being tripped over by someone. I came here to get some rehab, and they were great. They treated me really nicely and got me into some helpful exercises. It was a long process, but Hand Surgery Associates helped me out real nicely. I am glas a friend of mine found this place. Recommended! more

Wrist Injury 8/4/2005

I recently injured my wrist while playing ultimate frisbee (I was running down a disc and an opponent knocked me over). I have broken a wrist in a similar injury and the symptoms were closely related. I went into the Hand Surgery Office and saw one of the doctors. He was very knowledgeable and I was fortunate to have a specialty clinic so conveniently located (right off the J-street Exit on business 80). After an MRI my condition was completely diagnosed and I am on the road to recovery. more
