Patient Ratings

This has been the best experience with a doctor in a while. Thank you, Dr. Dietrich.- Douglas

Solid 10/10. He fixed my torn ligament.- Jared

Best care and facility I have ever been to!  Dr. Dietrich is the best!

I was very pleased with Dr. Dietrich.  He tried to make me very comfortable and diagnosed my problem right away.

Dr. Dietrich has always been very fair and knowledgeable about my care.

My hand doctor retired so this was the first time I saw Dr Dietrich. I thought he was terrific.

Dr. Dietrich was very courteous and explained my condition very clearly. He's a very nice and professional doctor.

Dr. Dietrich has performed several surgeries on my hands, all with excellent results. I would not go to any other doctor for hand surgery.

Dr. Dietrich was excellent. He went above and beyond what was expected. Highly recommend!

Gave clear explanation of the procedure, potential problems and possible outcomes.- Margaret

Procedure and alternatives were fairly explained and weighed. Out of pocket expenses were clearly defined and accurate. Actual results were precisely what was foretold. Completely satisfied with every aspect of the process.- Gerald

I had been to several doctors/specialists, who had all told me the same thing and was not honest nor did they truly care about me as a person/patient. I found Dr. Dietrich to be very knowledgeable and compassionate towards my circumstance. He took the time with me to explain what was going on with my body and set a plan in motion with my consent. I think the man is an absolute blessing, and a really wonderful physician. I DO NOT SAY THESE WORDS ABOUT JUST ANYONE EVER!!! I would refer everyone to go to him. I hope he will continue to be my doctor for decades to come. He totally set me at ease and was and is THE BEST DOCTOR I HAVE HAD IN DECADES!
