Dr. Hanesworth Was Great!

Excellent! Office staff was always courteous and prompt. My surgery went well and Dr. Hanesworth was great!

I Had An Excellent Experience

I had an excellent experience. The staff and Dr. Hanesworth were kind and helpful. From the very first call to set up an appointment I felt taken care of. I was quickly scheduled for appointments and for the surgery. The surgery on my knee gave me freedom for constant pain and I recovered very quickly. Those who work at the surgery center are excellent and very helpful. All of my questions and concerns were addressed in a very caring and professional manner. I thank each of the doctors, nurses, and the office staff at both places.

Excellent Surgeon

Dr. Hanesworth, I wanted to write you a note to say how grateful I am that you did my partial knee replacement. I’m feeling a lot better and my knee is doing a lot better. Thank you for being willing to do the surgery. Other doctors said it wouldn’t be worth it or blamed the problem on my weight. Well, guess what? Since I’ve had the surgery I’ve lost a significant amount of weight. …I can already do little things with my daughter I couldn’t do before. You’re an excellent surgeon.

Amazing Physician

He is an amazing physician. Through the years he has fixed one of my shoulders and a complete knee replacement. They both turned out perfectly. Last spring I had fallen in Arizona and broken my ankle. The local Arizona doctor set it and I had three surgeries. He took the stitches out a little too soon so on my way back to Washington I developed a staph infection that needed radical treatment because there was metal in my leg that could become infected. Dr. Hanesworth responded immediately to my problem and saved my leg from further surgery. I have had such positive experiences through the years with all in the clinic.

Very Professional

It’s been awhile, but from what I remembered is, the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. If I remember correctly Dr. Hanesworth was very professional, answered all my questions and ensured I understood all the answers. All my appointments were timely and the surgery on my knee was also within a reasonable amount of time. Hopefully in the future I will not need to have any orthopedic issues that require surgical services, but if I do, I will return to Skagit Northwest Orthopedics.

Gentle, Kind and Compassionate

Since last May I have had excruciating pain in both knees. I took down 90 ft of a 6 ft cedar fence with a neighbor and I expect that is what woke “the sleeping giant”. I have been in considerable pain since then. I was told by a PA that I probably wouldn’t find a surgeon that would do a total knee until I lost weight. Fair enough as my BMI was 41. I did an extremely restrictive diet and did lose 15 pounds. I had my knees injected with monovisk which didn’t work. I tried meloxican which I couldn’t tolerate. I got a script for PT which I did religiously to try to get my upper legs strong enough to help recover from surgery if and when that might happen. By December of this year I could barely walk—the PT wasn’t helping and was causing more knee pain. I felt I did EVERYTHING humanly possible to help my situation and yet no one was taking this situation with any kind of compassion or, in my opinion, kindness. I had a second set of X-rays ( at another office) which showed bone on bone in both knees. In desperation I made an appt with Carlos Aguero to see the other X-rays and to inject my knees with toridol. I think he was surprised to see me barely walking and in tears and told me that Dr Hanesworth was in that day and asked me if would I like to see him—and for that I was extremely grateful. Dr Hanesworth saw the X-rays, asked which knee was in the most pain ( the X-rays showed that they were equally a mess) and injected the less painful leg with toridol. He then gave me a surgery slot on Dec 19th to get a total right knee and for that I am extremely grateful. The man showed a ton of kindness and compassion and I left the office with tears of relief. My replaced knee is wonderful. Yes, there has been pain with the incision site and with PT, but it is nothing compared to what I’d been experiencing for that 8 months!! I am extremely grateful that Carlos and Dr. Hanesworth realized that enough was enough and that surgery was the only solution. Sadly as my new wonderful knee heals I am realizing that my other knee will also need surgery as it is in considerable pain taking the brunt of things until my brain kicked in and realized that i now had a wonderful, strong and new knee!!!! Dr. Hanesworth is a wonderfully gentle, kind and compassionate man and I look forward ( if that is possible) to having him replace my other knee at some point in the future!!!

The Best Care Possible Anywhere

I’ve seen Dr. Hanesworth and Dr. Shafer also. Dr. Hanesworth also treated my husband Dallas, a few years prior to my becoming a patient. What can I say? There are not enough complimentary terms to describe my care from beginning to end. They are terrific! My experience has been nothing but positive and I would not hesitate, nor have I hesitated to refer someone needing orthopedic care to Skagit Northwest. I have two knee replacements by Dr. Hanesworth and a badly broken upper arm repaired by Dr. Shafer. In each case I was given the best care possible anywhere. We are so fortunate to have physicians of this quality in our area. I know by reputation there are others that are terrific as well. I could write all day but let this suffice for now. Skagit Northwest Orthopedics is the place where we, my husband and I, place our orthopedic trust.

Great Result

Left knee pain. Dr Hanesworth suggested a partial replacement. Just the inside of the knee. The healing was very fast with very little pain. It has been like my normal knee before the pain ever since. I am very pleased with the result. Great result.

Professional and Courteous

Dr. Hanesworth was professional and courteous. I felt very comfortable and confident with his assistance.

Professional and Caring

Both Dr. Hainsworth and his Nurse are always professional and caring when I come in. They listen to what I have to say and help me through it. I always leave feeling better then when I came in and my quality of life is enhanced. I can’t say that about many doctor visits and the relief is almost immediate. I am sure my treatment needs will increase and I have confidence they will be there for me.

Very Helpful and Friendly
