“Dr. Paul was welcoming and straightforward, which I greatly appreciated. He performed surgery on my left knee, which ended up being an ACL Revision Reconstruction. However during that rehab process I continued to have lateral and rotational instability, developed an injury to my common peroneal nerve and after seeking many other opinions have undergone Reconstructions to my LCL, PLC, and anterolateral ligament. Injuries that were missed by Dr. Paul and several other surgeons. That said, Dr. Paul was very transparent and communicative both with me and with my physical therapy team. I appreciated when he suggested I get additional opinions. Despite that, I have unfortunately now spent several years rehabbing from knee surgeries and injuries that could have been caught earlier if the question had been asked "why did my ACL fail without a traumatic event" rather than simply performing a revision and not critically looking further at the cause.”
– Danielle H.
“Both shoulder surgeries healed without problems or pain-need I say more?”
– Herman E.
“Dr. Paul has seen me for a couple of different fractures over the years. He is professional and kind. The transition from a small practice to an incredible, stand-alone facility has been splendid! My husband's surgery there was successful. I highly recommend Dr. Paul and the Physician's Assistant who works with him. The physical therapy and coffee shop at the Boulder location are both bonuses.”
– Deborah S.
“Very professional and friendly.”
– Allen N.
“Dr. Paul was thorough and kind and clear about what my knee issue is and how we are going to treat it. Glad to have Dr. Paul doing my knee scope! I also want to compliment Dr. Bjerke- this was not an appointment with him at the clinic but working as a nurse at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics. He had forgotten a consult for a patient the evening before, and the first thing he did when coming to see the patient the next morning was to apologize to the patient and admit his mistake- it really helped the patient get right back on track with the issue at hand, and both the patient and I appreciated his candor and willingness to take responsibility. Well done!”
– Jill M.
