Very professional and made me feel very confident that he would discover the problem in my shoulder. He was rcommended to me by my son who had a torn rotator cuff repaired. I certainly would recommend Dr Cary Motz for any ones shoulder repair.

By far the worst, most unprofessional doctor I’ve ever met. He wrote me off after he found out I wasn’t using his PT (wasn’t an approved vendor by my work comp) and he didn’t believe me and tried to tell me there was nothing wrong with my knee. So I got a 2nd opinion and DUH, there WAS... torn meniscus. I’m 6 weeks post op with my surgery now and doing great! Thank God I advocated for myself to my claims adjuster and switched doctors! If I could give him zero stars, I would!!

I found this doctor to be good with patients, and knowledgeable about the issue at hand. He also gave good feed back as to the next steps in his plan for my son healing without rushing him back to the field, yet maximizing his field time. I endorse this doctor for all your ortho needs, his assistant Amelia is also knowledge and great to work with.Scheduleing was easy and the place was clean

Dr. Motz is amazing. I tore my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus in February, he was able to get me into surgery within a few weeks, and had me walking as soon as possible after the surgery. It is now September and I am completely free with no pain, which I have been for a while. He is slightly cautious post-op, but that is a good thing especially in my situation. I recommend him for all knee injuries.

I would most definitely recommend Dr. Motz to all my family and friends. He took very good care of my shoulder and my knee. I have had no problems and after my surgery his office called and checked on me to make sure I was comfortable, and asked if I had questions they could answer or any other concerns.

Saw Dr. Motz for scope knee surgery.The office visits are impersonal.Dr. Motz has 1 surgery scheduling nurse&getting in touch with her is challenging= better be available and have no expectation that she is going to have much time for questions. Was given inadequate info about surgery&post-op.My first appt with Dr. was 15 minutes & he never explained my knee tear or surgery but charged me $140 for it.This Doctor is all about profit it and shows.The surgery center and anesthesiologist were great.

I would not recommend this person to anyone . my experience with person was not very good. Left knee hurts more now than before I had surgery. This person was not understanding and did not listen to well, plus he wanted to scope my knee again at full price, when the procedure was not done correctly the first time! My wife and I questioned the surgery, I was done in less 20mins . . . so we are seeing the end results and another doctor to clean up this doctors mess. Motz is about the America $ .
