  • Jan 17, 2019

    I will be happy to provide a follow up evaluation upon my next visit in February. I was surprised and disappointed that he seemed disinterested in discussing or following up on any neurological symptoms beyond my foot.

  • Jan 08, 2019

    Dr Ensrud is great, pleasant, and to the point and informative

  • Jan 06, 2019

    I think the meeting initially went well with him. He did enlighten me on some problems that we are going to address with this shoulder issue I have. Nerves is a little bit of a question mark, I'm starting to find out, in my life. So we are going to address the situation. I go back and see him soon. And we're going to do some nerve testing to see the extent of the damage, and we're going to see if we can't get me back to, you know, a normal life for me. Right now my life is a little un-normal. So I hope all goes well and God bless, and he did seem to be very knowledgeable, and I hope all works out. Thank you.

    I enjoyed meeting Dr. Ensrud. He was extremely thorough in his examination of my problem with my hip joint. I would recommend him without any reservation. He answered every question that we had, he provided examples of what I could do to improve my situation, and he also made a suggestion about a follow up visit that was completely ... my choice to make, and so it was a pleasure meeting him, and I felt that he was a very professional provider.

  • Dec 13, 2018

    Dr. Ensrud is great. I have the greatest confidence in him. The problem is I saw him an hour after my appointed time. Also the staff was unable to make a follow up appointment for me. I had to call in the next day.

  • Dec 09, 2018

    So friendly and explained everything

  • Dec 08, 2018

    Excellent. Dr. Ensrud listened carefully, empathized with my situation, was knowledgeable and helpful and spent an appropriate amount of time with questions and the plan of care.

  • Dec 08, 2018

    Professional and competent and mannerly -in every way accomplished.

  • Dec 06, 2018

    Our regular provider was not available and the Dr. who provided the procedure seemed to be learning how to do the procedure. It took longer than it usually does and was more complicated. (Using the ultra sound to guide the injection rather than just giving the injection. Then the battery apparently had to be recharged and the machine restarted, etc.) A second MD was supervising. There was a fairly long wait in the exam room waiting for the 2 doctors. It wasn't a big problem to us, I understand that new procedures need to be practiced/learned.

  • Dec 05, 2018

    I felt like you did a very good job and explained what was going on during his test and it was very interesting. Thank you.
