What People Say About Dr. Aaron Insel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Insel treated my Dupuytren’s contracture on my right hand using a non-surgical method (Xiaflex). I saw two other hand specialists before I saw Dr. Insel, both of whom told me it was not possible to treat my case other than surgery. Being as I am a professional musician, I could not afford the loss of my hand for the amount of time recovery from that surgery would have required. The Xiaflex worked better than I could have imagined. My finger is nearly straight, and the recovery was not nearly as bad as it would have been otherwise. Dr. Insel brought a “can do” attitude to my case, was confident and caring. He took the time to explain what would be entailed for my treatment, and his office staff was polite, professional and helpful as well. I thought I would have to live with my bent finger for the rest of my life, but the Xiaflex treatment is a miracle, and Dr. Insel really knows how to use it effectively. I can’t recommend him enough to anyone who needs a hand specialist.

Dr. Insel was fantastic! Not only did he provide me with the best care possible after both my injury and later surgery, but he definitely treated my family and I with the utmost respect. Now, personally, I am not a fan of visiting any doctor's office in the least, but I actually enjoyed visiting his office and conversing with him and his team of professionals - and guess what!? (in a very matter-of-factly sort of way) I even got to sit down with these great people during one of their lunch-ins. Now that was some good eating! Overall, my right hand, the hand he worked on, is doing better than ever and I am entirely grateful for his absolute attention to detail when it comes to dealing with his patients. 5 stars? pshhttt! more like 10!

Dr. Insel came highly recommended to me by numerous patients of his. I work with my hands so when I started having pain in my right hand I was very nervous. Dr. Insel made me feel very comfortable. He thoroughly explained processes every step of the way. I would highly recommend.

Well. Back in 2017 I left a review. So now it's 2019. Dr Insel is a compassionate Dr. He has great "bedside manners." He definitely cares. With all that being said I highly recommend another Dr if you have an Olecranon Fracture. 3 surgeries and 4 years later I had to go to another surgeon to fix my arm. So that's my updated review. I actually like Dr Insel, I know he tried, but he couldn't cut it. Took another Dr. to fix it. So he gets 2 stars.

Dr. Insel is a highly skilled surgeon and a kind, caring physician. He is a superb diagnostician and his surgical skills are true artistry. I've been a registered nurse for over 30 years, so I am rating him not only as a patient, but also as a healthcare provider myself. He exemplifies everything we health professionals aspire to in our careers.....pursuit of excellence and putting our heart into everything we do for our patients. And the office staff are all very friendly and polite.

I saw Dr. Insel for a dog bite which required surgery. Everything was explained in detail and my hand healed beautifully with no residual deficits. Dr. Insel is caring and compassionate with a great bedside manner.

Excellent Doctor! Not the first doctor I saw for this problem. Not only is this doctor talented and smart, he also has compassion and cares. Not the typical scenario of let me see how fast I can cut you open and how quick I can get you out of my office. There isn't one single thing I can complain about and the surgery was a complete success!

Dr. Insel was very kind, he was not available to give me surgery later in the week, so he made a special appointment to meet me at the hospital on a day he doesn't do surgery to in order to fix my hand.
