Patient Ratings

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

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

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!
