Dr. Metzler has been amazing since day 1. He made my daughter feel comfortable and explained everything in great detail when she needed surgery. We never feel rushed at our appointments and he always makes sure that all questions are answered and you fully understand. I would definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Dr Metzler did an outstanding job. He repaired my rotator cuff tear, labrum tear, Shaved down my collar bone, and released my bicep impingement in my shoulder by cutting the bicep. It has been 5 weeks and I cannot say how thrilled I am with my progress. The Physical Therapists’ say my range of motion is weeks ahead. I attribute it all to Dr Metzler and following the PT guidelines to a T. Why pay all of that money and not follow directions. As I have said I am thrilled. I highly recommend Dr Metz

I can't recommend Dr. Metzler highly enough. I think he is an extraordinary surgeon - he did an amazing job putting my shattered knee back together. He is thoroughly professional and unfailingly kind.

I sought out Dr Metzler for a second opinion after having knee surgery by another group in town. He did a cartilage procedure on my knee and i couldn't be happier. I am back to all the things i used to do. I have gone to a couple of different groups in town and Dr Metzler is an excellent sports surgeon.

Dr Metzler has taken care of my entire family for surgical and nonsurgical issues. He is spot on with his diagnoses and his plans and always addresses my concerns. My daughter is back to high school soccer after he did an amazing job on her ACL. He is passionate about his field and is truly a genuine person. As a nurse, I trust him with my family and refer all my friends to him, as well as patients that need orthopaedic care in the hospital. Great guy and great surgeon.

Dr. Metzler is one of the finest Doctors in his line of work. He did work on my daughters knee and I can't say enough positive remarks about him. I will say his professionalism is above and beyond. A good genuine person over all. A great surgeon and a great listener.

Unless there is an something on MRI or X-ray Dr. Metzler isn't interested in looking any deeper into an jury. I had to go to another Ortho group to find my injury and be treated. And when I tried to explain (as a nurse and patient) there was something wrong, I was dismissed.
