  3. K2 - SORRY for whatever's going on! I personally used Dr. Jonathan Franklin w/Orthopedic Specialists of Seattle (Ballard area, 206-784-8833) & also at Seattle Orthopedic Center, 206-633-8100 on NE 45th. He was GREAT!!! Very mild-mannered guy and I had complete confidence in him. I had meniscus surgery with him.

    I personally know 6-7 other people who also used him and were VERY happy with him... I wouldn't hesitate to go back. GOOD LUCK!!

    Mom and my sister-in-law use Dr. Paul Williams at the Minor and James clinic on pill hill. He is associated with swedish.

  5. I second jissy's recommendation for Dr. Franklin. He's absolutely wonderful, and I also had meniscus surgery with him. When my insurance dropped their clinic temporarily, I knew that I'd go back and pay cash if I needed the other knee worked on while not covered - he was that good. I loved that he's conservative and not surgery happy too.

    My only caveat about him is that he is not quick to recommend physical therapy (except for after surgery). I'm a big fan of doing PT when needed (while in a "wait and see" mode of whether a situation calms down enough to avoid surgery), so if you feel you might need PT, you may be the one to ask about it as opposed to him recommending it.

    My primary doctor at Swedish West Seattle refered me to Dr. Kvidera at that clinic. Visit was due to a recent fall but no problem, mainly to be sure there wasn't. A very nice man, I liked him. Any of my doctors are at Swedish or recommended by a Swedish doctor. I have no complaints.

    A strong second for OPA, part of Swedish. Dr. Lawrence Holland did my knee replacement in August and he is wonderful. I have met several other people out and about in West Seattle who also rave about him. One great benefit to going to OPA, everything is in one building that is dedicated to ortopedics so everyone who you come in contact with is focused on orthopedics.

    I'm a huge supporter of OPA/Swedish. Their docs have helped my DH with his knee and replaced my aunt's hip. Great docs, Great hospital.

  9. Yep, OPA/Swedish is the place to go. Drs. Siedner, Toomey and Holland are the knee guys - all are great docs, can't go wrong with any of them. Great staff and facilities. Highest recommendation.
