I was airlifted to St. Mary’s on October 23 with a distal radius fracture with destroyed ulnar artery. Dr. Gammon took on the case late in the day, including surgery in the evening. I am deeply appreciative not only of his dedication to helping me, but also that everything has healed nicely without complications. Paul H. Dear Dr. Gammon, Thank you so much for taking care of my fractured arm at St. Mary’s Hospital. My doctors back home in Longmont, Colorado, said that whoever took care of me in Grand Junction had done an excellent job on my arm. They stated that everything was “perfect” and that they didn’t need to recast my arm because it had set so well. Thank you again. Ann P. Great office. Short wait times. The laughter was wonderful. Awesome group of people Judy J. Dr. Gammon had to place a plate in my wrist because of an ATV accident. Thanks to Dr. Gammon, my recovery has been excellent. I am still able to play golf as I did before the surgery. Dr. Gammon is an outstanding surgeon. His care, skill and compassion is the best I have experienced. I have normal use of my wrist today due to his skill as a surgeon. Robert J.
