    Robert Chase MD
    Dr. Chase, Bob, is an amazing surgeon who has worked on all four of my extremities. My new left knee is now healing wonderfully. Bob has also scoped my right knee, replaced my right hip, and rebuilt my left shoulder. He is an excellent surgeon, and a wonderful man. His direct, caring approach tends to diminish anxiety, and his incidents of infection are infinitesimal, at less than 100th of 1%. The nurses and other staff members at the hospital are in awe of Dr. Chase. One nurse told me that and quot;We just don't have problems with Dr. Chase's patients.and quot; As much as I don't like having people cut on my body, if it has to happen, Dr. Chase is the man for the job. He is a very dedicated professional that provides positive results in the world of orthopedic surgery. His bed side manner is straight forward and comforting. His office staff sets up everything for pre and post operative surgery. After several surgeries and many, many visits to Dr. Chase's office, I have never had a problem of any type. I fully recommend him.

    He is easy on the eyes! He is really nice. A neighbor had referred me to him who has had surgery. Actually my doctor had referred me to him. He was very professional, very easy to communicate with. He knew exactly what he was doing. He was very thorough and he is confident. I was told to have a long recovery and there was a lot of follow up and exams. He was just perfect.

    What stands out to me is the excellence of care and concern from start to finish.  He was fantastic from our initial meeting, all the way through the procedure and the follow up.  He came highly recommended by somebody that we trust and I was not at all disappointed.  If I ever have another orthopedic issue I would be back to see him.

    eatments then beforeI initially went for neck pain and hand pain. I was given many tests and had no problems with the initial doctor. I was referred to other departments for treatment. For the hands - The tech said I would need surgery but the doctor was going away for awhile so he gave me a shot to hopefully help for awhile. No problems with this tech but there were no other options for treatment as the only doctor was unavailable. I was not told this before the appointment. For the PT - This doctor said my neck was straight as a board. He was confident his adjustments and treatments would help. I Went three times a week for several weeks and the visits consisted of electrode muscle therapy, and an adjustment. Each visit I told him I was not feeling any better and I was concerned about the adjustments he was making as the previous doctor said there was a "crack" in my neck in the area of pain. He said it was fine. After a few weeks of his treatments he said he was going to refer me back to the other doctor to get a shot to relax my back muscles so his adjustments would "hold". I asked him if there were stretches or exercises that I could do at home but he said there was not as my muscles were too tight. I never heard back from either doctor. I felt worse after the treatments then before and really feel like the large amount of money I spent was a waste.

    There really weren't any services performed. I was 25 years old. I have major hip issues and didn't know what was going on at the time.... Dr.Carn looked at me, had me walk across the room, then told me he didn't want to help me because I was only 25. He seems to think only elderly people have hip issues. I was seen in the ER and brought my xrays they had given me. NEW technology puts your xrays on a cd. His computers weren't able to read the hospital disks. I had to go back to the ER and pay for my films!!! And then he tells me he doesn't want to help me! Then I get a bill in the mail for a $200.00 office visit!!! WHAT A JOKE!! All the staff was just as friendly as him.

    Dr. Paul Swartz was my surgeon. I had several appts and never saw him. I only ever saw his PA Brian. The first time I met him was when I had a cortisone shot in my hip joint.. which was unsuccessful. Dr. Swartz had an "idea" of what was wrong with my hip. I trusted him to do my surgery. The surgery was supposed to be laproscopic, but there was a chance it could be an open surgery. Well I awoke to a 6 inch incision down the top of my thigh. 6 months later and I'm in more pain then before. I return to see him and he tells me he doesn't know what to do or what's wrong. He refers me to his partner Dr. Schillen, whom I really liked. I had an mri with a dye injection, and he was able to pin point exactly what the problem was. If Dr. Swartz would have done that first, it may have been successful. The only benefit I received from my many visits, was my last visit to see Dr. Schillen. I respect what he said- "I know how to fix your problem, but I don't feel comfortable enough to do it." And he referred me to an amazing hip only surgeon in the bay area. So thanks to Dr. Swartz and his taking a shot in the dark surgery, I am 26 years old and had 2 surgeries. The difference is, the 2nd one was successful.

    The emergency room said we should follow up with an orthopedist for my wife's broken collarbone. That was Sunday afternoon. I called Shasta Orthopedics on Monday and got a recording. A nice gal called Tuesday and said they would get the records (xrays , etc.) from SRMC, study them, and call us with an appt. No word Wednesday. My wife was very uncomfortable and we needed to see someone. I called them back on Thursday and the nice young lady said the doctors hadn't decided yet about who would see her. I asked her to find out , please!!!! She called back and said the soonest they could see her would be next Tuesday. They obviously did not want to see her; so we found someone else. Very diaappointed in their cavalier attitude.

    From start to finish this was a bad experience. Many months later, I have still not fully healed from an injury I was told would take about six weeks to heal. Schillen took X-rays, had the hard cast removed (the nurses struggled with this seemingly routine task) and recommended a walking boot. The walking boot I received was too big, but Schillen was not around to supervise this. Instead, the nurse assured me it was the correct size and stated that I could begin walking . She also forgot to size me for an ankle brace that I was to graduate to in a month. When I alerted her of this, she merely handed one over the counter on my way out! Walking hurt like crazy when I tried it, so I stayed on crutches for a week more. I called to voice my concerns but no one ever returned my phone calls. Also, I was told I could take the boot off at night. I woke in horrible pain when I shifted around in my sleep. I was given very few guidelines about do's and don'ts. There was confusion with paperwork and the office from the beginning, and the physical therapists I saw had me doing exercises I shouldn't have been doing because (in accordance with Schillen's recommendations) I began physical therapy without updated X-rays. The physical therapists assumed the bone had healed when it had not. When I returned to Schillen's office at Shasta Orthopaedics, more blunders occurred and I was told that the bone was not healing as expected, and that I should severely limit my activities. It was at this point that the office recognized I had been given a brace that was too big. After two months of very limited activity, the bone had not healed and Schillen recommended surgery with a bone graft. I told Dr. Schillen that I was totally dissatisfied with the care thus far. I went to have a CT scan, hoping that my complaints would make them more careful and attentive. It was laughable when at the imaging office, my file from Schillen's office directed a CT scan of the wrong ankle!! Of course, when Schillen recommended surgery upon my next visit, I opted to get a second opinion. My new doctor assured me that surgery was not the best option at all, and has given me a bone growth stimulator. All I can say is, I am so thankful I elected to get a second opinion. I have since heard from a local in the medical field that Shasta Ortho is notorious for being disorganized. Consider the rumor confirmed. A total headache of an experience.
