Had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Metz recently. He was very professional, answered all my questions, and gave me ample time with one on ones. His office staff were great and helped me through a procedure that I was was very unfamiliar with. From start to finish there were no surprises and I was very happy with and would absolutely recommend Dr. Metz to anyone having this procedure done.

Dr. Metz did surgery to replace my son's ACL after a wrestling accident. He and his staff were wonderful. He answered all of my nervous mom questions before and after surgery. He never rushed me and always made sure all my questions were answered. I think he is great.

Dr. Metz performed two carpal tunnel surgeries and a trigger thumb release and I am very happy with the results. He explained everything well and there were no surprises.
