Dr. Ratay listened well and responded to my questions. He offered clear explanations and alternatives. He was very kind, caring and seemed to clearly have thought about my problem and how it should be handled.

Dr. Rattay performed a total shoulder replacement on me, for a second time and other than having a bout of nausea after surgery, I came through this just fine. I'm in therapy now and anticipate a complete recovery in record time. All the nurses on the surgical floor were outstanding. Blessings to you all.

I felt very comfortable and assured that I was in good hands. I especially appreciated that I was being listened to and all my questions were answered; no one hurried me along. The staff and facility are outstanding! I am sooo happy to be more active and pain free!!!

Was made to feel at ease when I got a steroid shot. Wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.

On November 27, 2017 You replaced my right shoulder, and on February 12, 2018, you replaced my left shoulder. When stretching and exercising, when keeping my arms relatively straight, I can do relatively good. If I bend my elbows just a little bit, my shoulders hurt like crazy and I have no muscle. Ignorance on my part doesn't tell me how to overcome this. For the most part, I have great flexibility. I am scheduled to begin employment May 1, 2018, but don't trust my ability to perform the job. I need a job, but my lack of confidence in myself is scary. You and your team were excellent for both operations. If I had to do it again, You would be my doctor.

Biography

“I wanted to be a physician since I was very young. I was fascinated by the anatomy of bones, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. I enjoy the diagnostic process and having the ability to dramatically change a patient’s life. I enjoy the interactions with patients and the fact that so many of the most complex hand and wrist problems are referred to me. “I look at every patient without preconceived impressions or prejudice. I try to relate to each individual. I am from Mason City, so I try to connect with each patient in some way personally. I try to sense their emotional needs and direct my words and actions to help them feel more comfortable. My ultimate goal is affect their lives in a positive way – relieving their pain while improving their function and quality of life.”
