Very pleased with experience. I had asked for a visit on short notice because I am leaving on Monday for 10 days over Christmas and I wanted an injection to take care of my shoulder. Many thanks to receptionist and Dr. Bussell.

I have always been treated fairly, professionally, and in a timely manner at your office. I have referred Ortho Nebraska to several people already. Thank you.

I was extremely happy with the care I received, and I will definitely recommend my provider to other people. I do think you should call earlier in the day with the survey though, cuz it's a quarter to 8, and that's a little late to be getting calls like this.
