    Great delivery of care by the entire OPA Team involved with my case. Efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Tools (QR codes) made available in the patient room to allow review of common Ortho conditions. Dr Swenson has a lovely bedside manner, listened to my concerns, and addressed the issue at hand. Thank you OPA.
