[00:00:03.640] Hi. [00:00:07.560] I'm Colleen Ridlin, and I'm a patient of Dr. Jonathan Guevara. [00:00:13.920] About 20 months ago, [00:00:15.360] I took a hard fall on my elbow on the pavement. [00:00:19.360] My joint was broken in eight or nine pieces. [00:00:23.480] I had trouble finding an orthopedic who would get me in, [00:00:26.720] and it would be about five days before I could be seen. [00:00:31.440] But I called here and they said, "How soon can you be here?" [00:00:37.160] That was my first visit. [00:00:38.840] He stayed late and looked at my elbow, and decided that, yes, I needed surgery. [00:00:45.440] Since my accident, I've had two surgeries. [00:00:49.640] Dr. Guevara did both of them, and I have complete confidence in him. [00:00:55.160] He's a learner. [00:00:56.480] He is always searching for a better way to do it. [00:01:02.320] His staff was great. [00:01:05.520] They took care of me, X- rays, and were always very personable with me. [00:01:13.160] My process is a little bit slow. [00:01:15.800] I've had a stiff elbow, [00:01:17.960] but Dr. Guevara keeps in constant contact with my OT [00:01:25.560] and make sure that I'm progressing physically the way that I should. [00:01:31.000] I have a few more degrees in extension [00:01:33.520] and a few more degrees in flexion that I need to go, [00:01:36.760] but I'm feeling more normal and functional now. [00:01:40.800] I'm so glad that I had Dr. Guevara.
