Florence, KY |
Dr. Metzler is seriously the best around. The best thing about him is the manner with which he describes procedures and conditions. He doesn't use the medical jargon that you can't understand. His background is top notch and he's a great guy. Will recommend every time.
in Ft Mitchell, KY |
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.
in Cincinnati, Oh |
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 is one of the most professional doctors I have ever been to. He is up to date on the newest techniques. He did my ACL surgery and I cant thank him enough. A truly genuine person that I recommend to ALL my friends.
in Edgewood, KY |
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.
in Covington, KY |
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.
in Aurora, IN. |
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.
Cleveland, OH |
Listened to my questions and returned my phone calls promptly. My knee feels great after surgery. Thanks Doc! I recommend him to all my friends and family.
