Sports Medicine, Ankle, Elbow, Knee, Shoulder
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Tuman.
“As a retired CCU nurse, I have specific criteria that I look for in my care providers. Dr. Tuman is an excellent example of these. He is an excellent surgeon, but more than that, he communicates very well, gives me his full attention when I ask questions, and shows genuine concern and consideration. Although he is very busy, he doesn't act hurried, distracted or impatient. I would highly recommended him.”
– George A.
“Dr. Tuman was great. He queried as to my progress when he saw me on the street. My resulting scar is small and healing nicely thanks to him.”
– Pam B.
“I have been very pleased with every aspect of my total knee replacement process with Slocum and Dr. Tuman. I was also very impressed with the care I received at Mckenzie Willamete Hospital during my first 2 days of recovery after my total knee replacement. In my opinion, the most important measure of my experience with Dr. Tuman and Slocum has been the exceptional positive results of my knee replacement. My recovery has been rapid and quite often I am not conscious of the difference between my natural knee and the replaced knee. I am very happy with my decision to have the total knee procedure performed by Dr. Tuman/Slocum and would be comfortable recommending Slocum Orthopedics to my friends and family.”
– William C.
“Dr. Tuman listened to me. He provided information and insight in a respectful manner. Very pleased with my him.”
– Stefanie K.
“Dr. Tuman was great.”
– Gordon W.
“Dr. Tuman was pleasant, competent and practical.”
– Susan M.
“I like that Dr. Tuman answers your questions before you even ask them. He gives you all the information that he can about your situation and let's you know if there are things that he can't answer. I had shoulder replacement surgery in January and it messed up. He let me know what he knew about that and what he would have to do to fix it. I had surgery again in February to fix the problem. I knew ahead of time what might happen when he got in there. So I was not surprised by the fact that he had to do a reverse replacement because he told me in advance that this was a possibility.”
– Marcie G.
“Dr. Tuman kept me on top of what was going to happen.”
– Clarence M.
“He has been very professional and caring in both of my knee replacements and has explained things well to me. He takes into consideration that I have to travel 200 miles for appointments and tries to combine my appointments so I don't need to make so many trips. Everyone in the office was very pleasant and helpful.”
– Nancy A.
“Dr. Tuman repaired my broken right femur in October. I found him to be kind, thorough and very good at what he does. I'm very happy with the results of my surgery. Today, I walk normally, unaided and without a limp. If I should need orthopaedic surgery in the future, I will go back to him.”
– Sandra Z.
“His explanation of the surgery and emphasizing what is important during the preop visit was very impressive.”
– Chares H.
“Great job on my total knee replacement.”
– Randy J.
“I had a no problems. I was only on crutches for 48 hours. I started gaining in knee movement in the first 2 weeks. I didn't need rehabilitation. I am still having some days with aches, but more days without pain.”
– Karla P.
“Knee is working perfect now! THANK YOU!!!!”
– Russ K.
“Excellent job on my knee! I am able to walk again without having severe pain. It's awesome and I shouldn't have waited so long. Dr. Tuman will be my choice should my other knee need a replacement!”
– Mike R.
“Dr. Tuman did a great job on both of my knee replacements. I would recommend Slocum and Dr. Tuman to anyone needing surgery.”
– Kate P.
“Dr. Tuman and the nurses were absolutely wonderful. I feel they went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable before and after my surgery. Thank you all for the care and kindness during a scary time for me. I am very appreciative.”
– Tanya L.
“Dr. Truman was great, he told me exactly what needed to happen and what was in the best interest of my knee. The physical therapy staff were great and worked with and around my schedule. I greatly appreciate everything that they did for me to get me back up and on my feet”
– Richard W.
“I liked the Doctor because he came right to the point and told my daughter and me just what was wrong, how to fix it, since I was 84 years old I don't really like shots but it helped so much. Saved surgery on the knee and that I liked. I will return when the need arises. He and the staff were very comfortable to be around. Thank You”
– Barbara R.
“Dr. Tuman made sure my needs were met and answered all my questions.”
– Joanie M.
“Having had a total shoulder-replacement surgery and a knee-ligament-reattachment, both by Dr. Tuman, I have experienced recovery above and beyond what is usually anticipated. I credit this, first of all to excellence of the surgeon, as well as a wonderful crew of physical therapists that were always enthusiastic, understanding, empathetic and exceptionally professionally talented.”
