Delavan, WI |
Very caring and understanding Dr.
in milwaukee, wi |
Dr. Vetter came into the exam room with 2 assistants. Neither the doctor nor assistants knew my name and why I was there. Vetter was clearly NOT interested in my case. She gave a very rough examination, she did not answer questions. Vetter either intentionally lied about the cause of my knee locking or she was clueless after seeing my MRI. She has an impressive resume, but that's likely the problem. If you're not young, famous, athletic or all three, don't waste your time with this physician.

Dr. Carole Vetter is an outstanding surgeon. She is informative and explains everything. I highly recommend her and her staff as well! Very pleasant and knowledgeable surgeon!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!
in Milwaukee, WI |
What an awful AWFUL person. Since she became the doctor for the Bucks, the little people mean nothing to Dr. Vetter anymore. She does not show her patients or residents respect. She may be one of the top ortho doctors at Froedart, but she has clawed her way there and was not afraid to throw people under the bus to get there. I want a doctor that cares about me and my family and Vetter is not that kind of person.

Great physician who listens to your complaint and explains all possible options for physical lifestyle and activities. Great surgeon with excellent outcome well beyond my expectations.
