I came to this office for a discomfort pain my knee. Dr. Kirsten thoroughly explained what was wrong and took additionalxrays. Bedside manners were great since I didn't feel rushed at all. Glad I came here for a second opinion!

My appointment was fine. But getting the office to authorize my MRI with my insurer has taken two months which is simply unacceptable. I probably won't go back.

Dr. Poehling-Monaghan and her staff were terrific- they were friendly, efficient, took time to listen, and responded to my concerns. Overall, I felt like my health issues were taken seriously by competent professionals. I would highly recommend their practice. I waited about 45 minutes before being brought to an exam room, so I would also recommend preparing for a bit of a wait.

The waiting room and patient areas were kind of grimy and the wait seemed longer than expected for an early morning appointment. But Dr. Poehling-Monaghan was GREAT!

Dr. Monaghan was worth the wait. I have been waiting for almost three years to get relief for my wrist and knee since my injury at work. She actually explained what therapy should go with my symptoms... the first person ever. All of the questions she asked were used to come up with a treatment plan that actually makes sense. I wish I would have found her a few years ago. My husband was even impressed with her intuitiveness and “makes sense” diagnosis.

She was completely knowledgeable about the pain I was explaining to her. She was not hesitant about getting me another X-ray when I explained my pain further. She was the first doctor to actually help me figure out what’s been going on with my hips and back for years now.

Dr Monaghan is the best orthopedic surgeon I've met. Unlike my previous ortho, she actually did tests and found that I've had a slap tear for a year, which she suspected after my first visit. My previous ortho gave me cortisone and pt suspecting a rotator cuff tear. It feels great to actually have answers now and I'm happy to have her fix my shoulder with surgery. She has great bed side manner. She listened to my wife's concerns as well. Very happy patient.

The staff and Doctors were very nice and polite. The nurse was doing her best to get me done with all the pain I was in. The Doctor was good and she wanted to investigate further into my pain to go past the xray to make sure nothing serious is wrong. First time there! Love the service!

This was the second time I saw Dr. Monaghan, and it was just a follow-up to an MRI that I had done. I work in a doctor's office, so I understand how quickly an office can fall behind schedule. And certainly, it's almost always a conglomeration of front end and back end factors that sometimes can't be avoided. I don't mind having to wait for an appointment. I also understand that given what I imagine to be the scope of injuries that Dr. Monaghan sees, my injury is not a big deal. I don't have chronic pain, in day to day life I have 99% function, I'm not an athlete on the benches because of what's happened to by shoulder/knee/etc. That being said, I am still one of her patients and I was disappointed that I was seen by Dr. Monaghan for 3 minutes, maybe 5 minutes tops. Maybe there wasn't much to be said about my MRI and steps moving forward. Even still, my few minutes with Dr. Monaghan felt rushed. More importantly, during that time I did not get the impression that she gave much thought to my concerns. I left the office feeling like I should not have bothered coming in the first place. Again, I work with docs so I get it - not all docs are going to be warm and friendly or are going to ask you about your day. I just wish that Dr. Monaghan was able to talk with me about my concerns for more than a few minutes. Perhaps on a different day under different circumstances things might have been different. This was just my experience!
