“Very impressed with Dr. Hoellrich both in the office and at the hospital. He did an excellent job on my recent shoulder replacement. He saw me in the hospital bright and early every morning. My office visits have been on time and he has listened to my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoellrich for anyone needing shoulder surgery.”
– James M.
“The process for evaluation, surgery, and recovery is the best in the business. The surgeon was excellent, too. When you have an excellent process and combine it with very skilled/talented people, you get this - world class.”

“All of my appts have been Wonderful.”
– Jeff O.
“Dr. Hoellrich is a talented and excellent surgeon. I am so happy with the results of my total shoulder replacement. Eugene is very lucky to have such an exceptional professional.”
– Dorotea G.
“Dr. Hoellrich and staff were exceptional and professional beyond anything I've experienced at a Medical facility! Every visit was punctual beyond belief and wait time was non-existent! My exposure to Slocum Center was a refreshing experience and one I have never had at my age of 72. So refreshing to acknowledge that a business focused on their patients with excellence to caring and serving is their hallmark!!!”
– Robert C.
“Dr. Hoellrich diagnosed my condition. We first attempted the conservative approach to relieve the pain in my shoulder, which actually delayed surgery for more than 2 years. Once the injections were no longer helping, surgery was performed. My recovery was short and I am pain free. Dr. Hoellrich was professional, he explained the procedure, surgery was a success.”
– Kim H.
“The best experience I have had with the doctors office, and with the hospital ever. The doctors office was always on time and very professional. The hospital was just as amazing, friendly, professional, and caring. I will be returning in October to replace my left shoulder. I experienced no pain in my shoulder after the operation. I took one pain pill on the way home to the coast, and that was it with the medications. I did the rehab in Bandon and was very pleased with help I received. I am now pain free in right shoulder with 80+% range of motion, and I am going for more. Currently working out daily in my gym. Extremely pleased with my experience with the Solcum Group, highly recommend to any one seeking medical care.”
– Douglas T.
“He was very easy to talk to and open to discussion. I felt confident in his skills and knowledge, plus Dr. Wuest highly recommended him. I'm really pleased with my new shoulder.”
– Kathleen M.
“I travelled from Great Falls, Montana, to Oregon for a shoulder replacement. Because I work full-time in the hospital here, I knew it was important to be able to return to work as soon as possible, and so researched the best practice for post-surgical care. Dr. Hoellrich was able to tell me about his usual protocol, so I knew I would have the best chance of the best recovery. The work was up to me! I met Dr. Hoellerich in July for a consult, then travelled to Eugene in mid-November for pre-ops, came back for November 30th surgery, and on December 21 returned to Eugene for a post-op checkup. Dr. Hoellerich knew of my medical background and spoke to me very respectfully and explained thoroughly procedures and expectations. Because I have extended family in Eugene, I was able to have a week in Eugene after surgery, and take advantage of the Continuous Passive Range of Motion (CPM) machine which was not available in MT. I was given exercises to do, which is now the best practice for Total Shoulder replacement surgeries. Dr. Hoellrich cleared me to return to work as of March first, and worked with me to establish post-surgical visits to satisfy both him and me.”

“My whole experience from beginning to end was positive. I received quality care from everyone involved in my experience. Thank you!”

“Dr. Hoelrich performed shoulder surgery masterfully. The operation was done so well that I recovered very quickly and with minimal pain. The entire staff was highly professional and very pleasant to work with. Cheers to Slocum.”
– Tom P.
“This was was second shoulder surgery performed on me by Dr. Hoellrich and I was very impressed with the care I received from him. He was always very professional and always kept me well informed prior to and after my surgery. Because my prognosis was poor, I was very concerned, however, the end result of both surgeries was nothing short of remarkable.!! Slocum is very fortunate to have such a talented surgeon on their staff and I would highly recommend Dr. Hoellrich to anyone having shoulder. He is the best!! Thank you Dr. Hoellrich!!”
– Cynthia A.
“Totally professional and as thorough a doctor that I've had. All the staff at Slocum are A1 in my book. Thank you!”
– Michael R.
“Initially I was evaluated by Denise Routhier, MD. I was impressed with her knowledge, bedside manner, and choice of referral to surgeon Rudolf Hollerich, MD. Dr. Hollerich did a fantastic job on my knee and provided initial outpatient follow-up. I'm very happy the anesthesiologist called me the same evening after the operation to see how my pain was. My last visit, I saw PA Kim and she was great, too. All nurses and other staff were welcoming and efficient. I won't hesitate to recommend Slocum to anyone considering orthopedic intervention.”
– Nancy B.
“Great !!! Explained everything that was going on with my shoulder the entire staff was great made me feel very comfortable !!!”
– Manuel S.
“He prescribed physical therapy to rehab my left arm and shoulder. This was/is very effective. I did identical exercises to my right arm at the same time I was doing them for the left. My range of motion has improved with both shoulder and arms. I would like to hold on surgery on my right shoulder and see how it progresses this year. Please keep me on the books for the potential surgery for the right arm. Thank you”
– John B.
“Very good Doctor. Solved my shoulder problem. Thanks”
– Francine R.
“First class service, both before and after surgery, Dr. Hoellrich and staff provided clear information. Waits were short and time with them well organized. The pre-surgery process significantly reduced any concerns I had. On the day of surgery, high praise once again from the nurses to the funny anesthesiologist. My only complaint is my post op nurse wouldn't let me go out to lunch afterward. Of course, there was Pac 12 softball on TV.”
– Sherri H.
“I did not have to wait to have the exray, and shortly after doctor came in to review and explain X-rays with me. Doctor took time to answe questions. Good experience!”
– Judy D.
“Unbelievably well done total left shoulder replacement. Worst pain was constipation from pain pills, which was changed. Surgical scar is very faint, movement is great and no pain. Your staff, and hospital staff did great work. As you can see, I can't say enough. Thank you.”
– John H.
“My shoulders have been extremely painful for many years. Dr. Hoellrich and his assistant have been fantastic and made it possible for me to hang on to my left shoulder for a lot longer through outstanding surgery. My right shoulder is to be replaced hopefully by Halloween. I have complete trust in the doctor and his staff. Thank you so much.”
– Jan W.
“Very professional and prompt.”
– Kerry C.
“No one wants to have a joint replaced and I had put it off for several years but I have to say I wish I had done it sooner! I had a full reverse right shoulder replacement and although I can not do somethings like I use to I can still get things done and with NO PAIN. The Slocum facility is SO professional right down to the staff clothing. I was treated with kindness and dignity by each and everyone! Thank you!”
– Judy M.
“He was knowledgeable, friendly, organized and always on time. Preformed 3 very successful surgeries on me. Rotator cuff, and both knee replacements. Prior to the knee replacements he saw me for several years for injections in my knees. We followed that care regime until it ceased to be effective then I opted to have the surgery. I never felt pressured in anyway. We discussed treatment options and made decisions with me totally involved. I felt I had the best Doctor of all!”
– Karen B.
“Dr. Hoellrich was gentle and understanding with me. He was patient and kind with me, as I came around to accepting my diagnosis and scheduling the surgeries. On each of the two surgery days, he was gentle and reassuring, but also very much in charge. He was confident of my ability to go through the surgeries and to heal with good results. I had the surgeries 16 weeks apart. I am amazed at how wonderful it is to have nearly full range of motion, my strength back, and no pain!! Life is wonderful now. I can participate fully in my college PE classes, sleep on both sides and on my back, carry my groceries and my grand babies! He is a skilled, competent surgeon and a kind and gentle human being. I am so glad I had them done by Dr. Hoellrich. Both joints feel as if they've been with me forever. They move smoothly and I forget they are replacements until someone asks or I notice the small scars! Dr. Hoellrich is the best! The best surgeon, and a gem of a human being.”
– Nancy R.
“I had a torn meniscus. I had arthroscopic surgery and have had no pain since surgery. I didn’t need any pain medication after surgery. Dr. Hoellrich explained the surgery before and after surgery and answered all my questions thoroughly. I think it was the best outcome possible.”
– Michael M.
“Dr. Hoellrich was informative. Potential problems and repairs were explained clearly. Good guy.”
– James S.
“Dr. Hoellrich was very thorough in explaining the diagnosis & options of my 'condition.' I trust him explicitly.”
– Peggy G.
“Dr. Hoelrich gave me two reverse shoulder replacements over the last 2 years. My right shoulder is still recovering and my left is like new. Thank you Dr. Hoelrich for the fine work. Thank you also for the post op support.”
