Washington Orthopaedic Center Reviews
Dr. Keith Birchard M.D
– I was happy with the whole procedure and with the results
– Truly a professional! Throughout my care dating back to June Dr. Birchard discussed all options clearly and included me in decisions. I have never felt so involved in my care. He has set the bar very high for all others.
– Thank you did excellent
– Got us in quickly
– I highly recommend Dr. Birchard. My other Drs. have been impressed.
-All my questions and concerns were answered and a plan of treatment was discussed and made. Everything after seeing Dr. Birchard was done like clockwork again with all questions answered.
Michael D Dujela D.P.M.
– Ever since I was a child I constantly struggled with my bunions and it made playing sports twice as hard for me. After college I was recommended to visit Dr. Dujela about surgery and to discover what type of bunion surgery best suited my feet. From my first appointment onward he has always been informative professional kind and an expertly overqualified orthopedic surgeon! He has now fixed both of my bunions and I feel like a brand new person (now I can finally be a foot model :)) I am amazed with the work he has accomplished. I am finally able to play basketball and ski without pain. I look forward to living a more fulfilled life because of Dr. Dujela and his immensely talented nurses/crew at Washington Orthopedic! Thank you so much!
-I’ve been very satisfied with the care I’ve received. After seeing another provider for the same condition, I feel Dr. Dujela was much more thorough and helped me with more types of conservative measures to try to solve the problem before having surgery than the other doctor did.
– Change of shoes and my new orthotics have made a big difference. Thank you.
– Dr. Dujela has performed both of my ankle fusions and I have been very happy with his care and humanity as a Dr. I would recommend him to anyone having issues with their feet and ankles
– “Very professional yet personable & caring. Realistic approach about care by offering several ways to handle it. He didn’t immediately jump to the “”let’s operate”” as the only remedy.”
he is the best specialist i have ever had i respect him totally
Bryan J. Nestor M.D
-Dr. Nestor was very kind and compassionate. He answered all of my questions and explained things very well. I felt very comfortable having my procedure done at Washington Ortho
-I was very impressed with Dr. Nestor’s knowledge of my condition and the surgeries that had previously been performed. He listened to my concerns and was very attentive. I definitely will come back to him for future issues. Plus, it is very nice to have another orthopedic option in Olympia!
-Doctor was very personable and informative. He just seemed like a great guy, willing to spend time with me and explain what my condition was. I really liked him and will not hesitate to see him again. Good guy and very competent at what he does.
-What a blessing, best Doc I’ve seen. Dr. Nestor was great. He took time and I could tell he cared. He fully explained to my wife and I my conditions and the pros and cons of surgery and recovery in detail. The medical profession is lacking great doctors like Dr. Nestor. He is a breath of fresh air. I trust him and that’s so important when dealing with your health/life.
-I was very impressed with Dr. Nestor. He was knowledgeable, patient, and listened to me. He gave clear instructions for self-treatment exercises to assist me to progress to resolving my inflamed tissues. Thank you, Dr. Nestor. I hope to stay healthy and not have to return too soon, but will certainly return if needed!
-Dr. Nestor was excellent in all areas. We would recommend him to anyone !
-My husband and I was very pleased with our visit…and he will make an apt.in the late fall for a knee joint replacement surgery with Dr Nestor.
Chad L. Bender M.D

-I will be back as needed. He is now my go to doctor as needed.
-I felt he was observant and listened well while trying to diagnose the reason for my pain necessitating this visit.
-He made feel very comfortable and listened to what I asked about my surgery. I definitely will have him again for any issues regarding my hands.
-He is very professional and yet very personal care all in one we were very pleased with care received.
-Dr. Bender was very caring and explained the options that I have with my wrist and let me ask questions and make the decision of how and what could and will be done.
-Dr. Bender did a good job in explaining my injury and options for surgery.
-Dr. Bender validated the tests that were ordered by my previous doctor and told me that the decision to have the surgery was indeed necessary. He treated me as an informed patient which I appreciated very much. Dr. Bender is a doctor who works with his patients instead of just for them.
-Dr. Bender was kind, attentive, and compassionate. I will be using him for all future orthopedic issues.
Dr. Christopher Hawkins M.D.
– Dr. Hawkins, MD was amazing. He was attentive, educated, sincere and fun. He made both my son and I feel welcomed and we felt that he truly cared for us (my son) as a patient(s). He understood my frustrations from our 1st opinion at a different facility, and truthfully shared his own concern. His immediate attention to my son’s injury, explanations so that he could understand it, and willingness to jump right in and get the treatment started, was outstanding and much appreciated. We have already, highly recommended him to others, and thanked the person who referred us to him. I’m very thankful we came here.
– Dr. Hawkins has been absolutely amazing!! He’s taken great care of me and my medical needs for my knee pre and post surgery. And I don’t believe any other dr would have taken the same amount of care and pride in their work as Dr. Hawkins does.
– Dr Hawkins is very nice and personable. I am always nervous to meet new doctors but his demeanor made it much easier.

Jessica Hannigan PA-C
“Jessica did a wonderful job of explaining my injury, providing the basis for her recommendation to have a repeat MRI, given the length of time since the 1st one, and what my options were. She made it clear that I could decide how to proceed based on my own needs and desired outcomes, and I did not feel pressured in any way to follow her recommendations. I appreciate her knowledge and ability to communicate this knowledge to me in lay terminology”
“As always Jessica and staff were friendly and efficient in all aspects of the visit. All of my questions were answered and I felt completely at ease and comfortable asking any questions . Never feel rushed and always leave with a smile…..Wouldn’t go anywhere else for my Orthopedic care”
