This surgeon is extremely competent and personable. And that combination is all anyone needs but is hard to come by.

I was sent to Dr Theuer for surgery the next day. I was unsure about having surgery in Shelbyville but after meeting him and him explaining everything to me I felt much better. He was very professional. I would diffently see him again and send friends and family.
