Dr. Ficke is a great surgeon. I found him quite by accident and consider myself extremely lucky to have done so. He's extremely knowledgeable and kind and gentle as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing hand surgery. His assistant Leslie is wonderful, too. It's a great office and all the staff was friendly and reassuring in my time of need. Dr. Ficke and Resurgens Orthopaedics ROCK!!!!
I want to recommend Dr. Ficke for his commitment to his patients. I had an immediate appointment to show my daughter's bruised finger which had an initial diagnosis of fracture & dislocation. The doctor's office had to be closed early due to Snow. However, the effort Dr. Ficke took to see us and help take an X-Ray (He found an alternate way to take an x-ray since the tech were out and took it himself) was immense. It shows his love for his patients. His diagnosis was very re-assuring as well.
