My wife and I have been treated by Dr Untch for many years. Every experience has been excellent. He's super smart, he listens, is kind, and has a sense of humor I appreciate. I highly recommend to you.

Dr. Untch did total knee replacement on both of my knees, 11 and 8 years ago. I have had no problems with the knees at all. They work perfectly. He was very understanding of my being a crybaby but still made sure I was doing what I was supposed to do to completely recover.

Suffered a compound fracture to arm along with a dislocated shoulder. Went to Dr. Untch one day after injury. A reduction of the dislocated shoulder in his office, w/o success. To ER that same day where he attempted a 2nd reduction - success. A office visit a week later showed the shoulder...more

I previously saw Dr. Untch at DMAFB and was always treated so well. When he retired, I was happy to find him working the civilian world. It was a broken arm/shoulder injury and he gave me good advice, and I don't think you will find a doc that takes better care of his patients.
