    Dr Stenger has been a godsend.I found him to be patient and understanding. Dr Stenger has done both my knee replacements with no issues. I am currently waiting for a hip replacement but with covid19 has been delayed. The hip pain is 4 times the pain as my knees and can no lwonger walk without a cane and only for short distances. Pain is borderline unbearable hope surgeries begin soon spending most of my time in bed gets worse every month. I highly recommend Dr Stenger and I pray surgeries begin soon.

    If my appointment were a first date, Dr. Stenger would never get near my hips again. I found him smug. condescending, with little or no patient compassion. It was very obvious I was nothing more than a hip to him. He does not believe in pain meds before the orthopedic surgery. Why the heck am I having the surgery? I'm in pain. But, again, he thinks of only a patient as a hip replacement. If you're looking for a patronizing doctor, you've found him.
