Listen to the full testimony

Dr. M. Wagner MD Thank you 3 times for your expertise in Stem-Cell Therapy procedures. The first procedure was in the left hip with four tears. As you recall, I had two labrum tears on the inside and outside of the labrum, one in the medial gluteous tendon and a hamstring tear. What astonished me was the pain was bad, and by the next day no more pain for the last 15 months. The 2nd procedure was in my right arm just below the shoulder. NO pain since and that has lasted nearly a year. The 3rd procedure was on the right knee. After knee surgery the pain on the right outside was bad as ever and right after them stem-cell procedure on the right knee the pain lessened each day until no more pain. I am grateful to you for my better health and sound advice.

- Jim Higgins, one of your patients

Congratulations on your new position! The Hartsock Family could not be happier for you. You are a rare and wonderful physician!

I had an issue of arthritis and after going to my regular doctor and getting referred to so many doctors, my husband who has been a patient of Dr. W told me of the stem cell research, I made an appt. and from that point on my life has changed for the best. Dr. W has everything at his finger tips to make a decision of what is wrong and I appreciated that so much.

My surgery went well and I am in recovery right now. Each and every time I see Dr. W his staff is so pleasant and he listens to what I have to say and has a heart of what you are feeling. He wants the best for you and you can tell.

- John McDermott in Seattle, WA | Sep 16, 2017

Dr. Wagner, MD is an exceptional physician. He listened to my wishes and has been complete in his approach to my treatment. While he presented me with various 'evidence based treatment' options, he respected my desire for more conservative/holistic healing. Consequently, I achieved a remarkable recovery from a cervical fracture, because he respected my wishes, beliefs and most importantly, worked with me. There aren't many doctors like Dr. Wagner, MD. Thank you.

Great Doctor, listens and cares, just had stem cell procedure done by Dr. Wagner on my hip and knee with phenomenal results. Would recommend Dr. Wagner highly to anyone

- Ron in Seattle, WA | Aug 14, 2017

I was one of the first few patients to undergo a stem-cell transplant (in May 2016) in my right knee after being diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis from a chondral defect. I have dealt with 10 years of knee pain and have done PT and other therapies, none fixing the problem. Now at 11 months post transplant and have ZERO pain. I have had a full recovery and am participating in 100% of my previous activities. I WALKED out of the office post-procedure, and am fully recovered after completing PT.

- Katie in Seattle, WA | Apr 05, 2017

Dr. Wagner did a Stem Cell Procedure on both my knees. I am very pleased with how the procedure went and how my knees
are doing since. I have talked with several friends and family members about my experience and highly recommended it...

- Tony from Seattle, WA

Dr. Mark Wagner has been our general practitioner for over 25 years. He has always been thorough and professional, and he is also a caring and compassionate person. He has cared for many in our family and always treated each one with concern and respect. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking medical care of the type he is prepared to administer.

Andrew F. and Marilyn J. Grisham

I’ve seen Dr. Wagner for years. He is knowledgeable, attentive and receptive to questions anytime.

This was a new procedure, a bone marrow aspirate concentrate using my own stem cells to regenerate cartilage. It was easy and exactly as he had explained. I walked out and see monumental improvement every day which is exciting. I trusted Dr Wagner as his past diagnosis and treatment were always spot on and I was able to return to my active lifestyle. No doubt, he’s one of the best docs around!
