I first saw Dr. Geissele in April 2017. It was amazing to me how clearly he identified my medical issues and helped me understand my treatment options. I saw Dr. Geisele get things done when no one else could. He is very understanding of everyday situations that contribute issues with treatment plans. I would highly recommend to anyone in need of an orthopedic Dr. His kindness and compassion are way above average and in my opinion, he goes above and beyond the call of duty of standard practice!

He has done 2 back sugerys on me in the past. They lasted a good while. He doesn't surgery on you , it' what you what & what's for the best. He's well mannered @ takes his time with you. Don't like seeing PA.

I was in severe pain for several years from sciatica but was terrified of having back surgery. My Dr sent me for an MRI and then to Dr Geissele. By then I had weakening in my right leg from nerve damage and the pain was worsening. After he reasoned with me that the surgery was necessary due to spinal stenosis we scheduled surgery. That was 7 years ago and I knew, immediately, that the surgery was a success! I haven't had that kind of pain since that day! I am so thankful for Dr Geisele!
