“The staff was friendly and helpful. The wait was short to be taken back to be seen by the physician. Contact with the physician was informal. Pertinent questions were asked, he listened to my response and explained in a clear, concise way what my options were and what he would recommend. I left the office feeling confident that I would be in very good hands and the best care available would be provided.” – Patty Boyd
“As usual Dr. Stefan Kreuzer was the consummate professional during my appointment. He already replaced my right hip back in 2016 and I have had marvelous results since then.

He is truly a pleasure to deal with and interacts without a touch of arrogance, even though he is one of the best anywhere in the world at his work. We are fortunate to have him working in our area.” – Phillip Hatley
