Catherine’s Story

When I finally found Summit Orthopedics, Dr. Ekstrom became my primary orthopedic and spine specialist. I will say I had never had a doctor who cared so much and gave me the relief and attention that I needed.

When I first moved to Minnesota from Georgia, my health was intact and I was vivacious and healthy. Within a year, things changed. At the beginning of this journey, I struggled to find a doctor who could diagnose and treat my ailment. When I finally found Summit Orthopedics, Dr. Ekstrom became my primary orthopedic and spine specialist. I will say I had never had a doctor who cared so much and gave me the relief and attention that I needed.

10 years later, I am still a patient of his, though my condition is still ongoing, he has still continued to be an outstanding doctor who I would recommend to anyone! His personality and vivacious bedside manner are just what I need to keep me going and back out photographing the world. His staff is hardworking, competent, and caring. Thank you Summit Ortho for this staff, they are a blessing!
