Since this was my second surgery and recovery, I did not have a ton of questions since I knew what to expect and we had been discussing this for awhile. Dr. Maschke answered all my questions I did have though and made himself available. It was very nice to hear that he says he monitors my progress in therapy and is looking at my numbers and the OT's notes. I appreciate that. My family and I really enjoy Dr. Maschke's demeanor. He keeps things real and we like his sarcasm and humor in making a terrible situation not that bad. I really am grateful that he made room for me and gave me an appointment during my first surgery when I brought him a mess with 5 broken bones. Dr. Maschke is an exceptional surgeon and while I am sad that this happened to me, I am very thankful that he put me back together again and listened to what I needed for the second surgery. Having my plates and screws removed was incredibly meaningful for me. He takes pride in his work and is conscientious and diligent.

Several years ago I was lucky enough to have Dr. Maschke called in to perform emergency surgery on my wrist when it collapseid while in a cast ordered by another Clinic orthopedist (my wrist had been x-rayed only once in 6 weeks). The surgery completely restored my wrist's function and appearance so when I started having trouble with a trigger finger I was certain Dr.Maschke was the doctor to see.
