What People Say About Dr. Christopher Diefenbach, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Diefenbach is amazing - kind and highly skilled! He performed a foot and ankle revision (corrected a previous fusion performed badly 3 years ago) that gave my husband's life back. The first fusion resulted in more pain than ever and added neuropathic pain. Before the surgery, Dr. Diefenbach explained his planned procedure clearly and stated that he believed he could improve the fusion and reduce the pain. For the first time in 3 years, my husband is walking unassisted- no cane - with significantly less pain. He is able to enjoy life again. He's still recovering. We're optimistic that his mobility will continue improve and that his pain will continue to lessen.

Excellent. He's really great, just sorry we didn't know about Dr Diefenbach and this group sooner. It would have saved me from orthodics and useless laser treatments. And he was nice to me as well. With just a small insert in my shoe, Voltarin, and an ankle brace I am back on the treadmill. My swelling is gone. This is an excellent group. Well run.

Chris was assigned to be my Ortho Physician. He looked at my injury and we discussed options and procedures. I felt like I knew so much more about what was occurring with the tissue and components of the injury after our discussion. Even though Chris was the smartest person in the room he didn't lord his knowledge over me or speak down to me. Thank you Dr. Diefenbach. -Aaron
