“Very knowledgeable, provided much information about my situation and some possible repairs to my torn Rotator Cuff. My surgery went well, in recovery Dr. Zechmann came and let me no that the repair went very well, that was very good news to hear. It has been four and a half months since the surgery and my shoulder area feels great and the function is almost back to normal. I am very thankful for having such a great doctor and his assistant, PA Owen Harris. I have nothing but good praise for the doctors and staff.”

“The experiences I was most impressed with were with 1) Lisette, surgery scheduler: She was kind, caring, thorough. She listened to me, answered my questions, offered any help I may need. She has been in touch re: ins. confirmation, surgery scheduling, addtl appts, etc. Her friendly, yet professional personality is a plus!! 2) Alan, RN, pre-op: Alan's patient skills are over the top! First of all, having everything in one place is amazing. Alan was fantastic!! His ability to be professional, completely thorough, friendly and funny made this visit so comfortable. He is truly an asset!!”

“I am a Group Health member, and when it was determined that I needed hip surgery, I did some research. I attended one of Dr. Zechmann's informational presentations and decide I would like to had him perform the super path approach hip surgery for me. My Doctor at Group Health gave the OK and so I had one hip done and 6 months later, the other hip. I would have preferred to never have had to have the surgery of course, but I was in too much pain not to have it. Since then, it's not like I'm totally cured, but I am so much better off. I can now ride my bike almost as well as in my younger days, and do many things I was unable to before because of the arthritis pain. I am so glad I learned of and got treated by Dr. Zechmann. The follow up meetings at Olympia Orthopedic have always gone well, with the staff always being professional and pleasant. Thanks!”

“Everyone from the moment I walked through the front doors, was very friendly, courteous, and extremely helpful....My follow-up appt was already made when I arrived for my MRI. I wish every experience I had with the medical community was like the one I had with Olympia Orthopaedic Associates.”
– Maxine B.
“While the idea of replacing my hip was frightening, the process and experience was as easy and positive as could be. I had the first hip replaced in early 2015 and after the great results, it was much easier to volunteer for the second hip replacement. I'm now about 7 months after the second surgery and can't say enough good about the results. No pain, complete mobility. Now it is just up to me to regain all of my leg flexibility and strength. Working with Dr. Zechmann and his PA, Kirk Jarman made the process easy. I highly recommend them and the entire crew from Olympia Orthopaedic Associates that assisted me through my surgeries.”
– George R.
“Dr. Zechmann is an excellent doctor and surgeon. My total hip replacement surgery went very well. My follow up appts were great. I received excellent rehabilitation advice and assistance. I continue to enjoy full use of my hip joint and mobility and am very appreciative of the care and treatment I was given. I would certainly and already have recommended Dr. Jerome Zechmann to others and the Olympia Orthopaedic Associates clinic has served me very well.”
– Paulette A.
“He and another doctor replaced my hips, one in Dec. 2013 and the other in April 2014. I am grateful for the things I am able to enjoy more now with the new hips. There are some difficulties, but I am so much better off than before the surgery, relief from the arthritic pain that I had to fight through constantly. I have recommended Dr. Zechmann and the Super Path Hip Surgery to friends, and two have had help from Dr. Zechmann. I appreciate the yearly checkup to make sure I am ok.”

“My surgery on my knee went very well and am back playing soccer already! My experience with everyone was great!”
– Ronald H.
“After being struck by a car resulting in a small leg fracture, I was referred to Dr. Zechmann for follow-up care. My experience at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates was very good. Appointments were easy to make, wait times were not long, and everyone was very friendly and happy to help me. While the office itself was a considerable distance from my home, it was worth going.”
– Lora T.
“Had to have surgery, A/C joint had deteriorated. Was not at all excited about it, but Dr. Zechmann did exactly what he said he would, he fixed me. Almost a year later, I have complete use of my left arm again with no restrictions or limitations. Skilled orthopaedist and surgeon. Absolutely glad I was referred to him and Olympia Ortho for this procedure.”
– TJ M.
“Awesome. Referred a friend. We will both be back.”
– John W.
“I have been seeing Dr. Zechmann for years -- he is one of the most caring, compassionate, and kind doctors I have ever known and in my opinion, one of the best! Feel blessed that he is my doctor and know that I will always be in good hands!!”
– Betty M.
“I think all of the preparation that is done makes hip replacement surgery go smoothly. Every staff member was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Zechmann's skills are amazing! Should we start a fan club? His explanations made me confident of the outcome, so my fears disappeared. Having a pre-surgery class was excellent. My husband was able to attend, so he was more prepared to help me. Having several people going through it at the same time was reassuring. I would (and have) recommended this team to anyone. Thank you all!”
