“My painful knee (tibia) accident was fortunately addressed by Dr. Jernick and the Tahoe Forest Hospital staff. The professional understanding and, most importantly, personal touch and care provided by Dr. Jernick were instrumental to my physical, emotional, and mental health recovery. Dr. Jernick displayed a level of personal care and attention not typically shown in today's medical and corporate environment. The example of care provided by Dr. Jernick was duplicated by the nurses and staff in the clinic and hospital during my stay and visits. The overall experience provided by Tahoe Forest and Dr. Jernick was top-notch and an example of how medical care should be provided. I am blessed to have had such a team caring for me. Many times during my visit, my heart was touched by the level of genuine care displayed.”

“Nothing but good things to say about Tahoe Orthopedic and Dr. Jernick. They helped get me through a ski-season ending knee injury in as short a time as possible and were always available to answer my questions before and after the two surgeries. My knee is doing great and I hope to be back sooner than initially expected.”

Shoulder Reviews

“Dr. Jernick was amazing to work with. From the diagnosis of my injury to the scheduling and actual surgery itself, Dr. Jernick explained the process in easy-to-understand terms. Dr. Jernick had an excellent bedside manner that was greatly appreciated. I can’t say enough about the team effort between Dr. Jernick and Todd Trujillo at Tahoe Forest Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. You will undoubtedly reap the rewards if you put in the work.”

“I am a 50-year-old female. I am active at the CrossFit gym, snow skiing, and hiking. I noticed pain in my left shoulder when I attempted overhead lifts. I took rest days and did PT, acupuncture, and sports massage. After an MRI, it was clear that I had arthrosis in my ac joint and collar bone. Dr. Jernick said he could fix it. He said he could go in, clean it up, and I would be pain-free. I did the surgery, and in no time, I was back in the gym, lifting overhead with no pain, just weeks after the procedure. Not only am I pain-free, but I'm also hitting PRs and getting stronger. Dr. Jernick is a gem. He is kind, smart, and knows orthopedics. He greatly supports my athleticism and ensures I can be my best. I'm very grateful that he is part of the Tahoe Forest Orthopedics & Sports Medicine team.”

“Dr. Jernick is probably the best doctor I have ever had experience with, in any specialty, anywhere. He is extremely knowledgeable and self-confident in his diagnoses and treatment plan. He explains everything clearly and logically, staying away from too much "medical jargon" so that patients can clearly understand their situation and options. He is a highly skillful surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Jernick.”
