I was informed of my diagnosis and what needed to be done surgically. Problem fixed, recovery time a breeze. Had I known how easy this procedure would be, I would have done it sooner. He also replaced my mothers hip due to a fall she had. She's doing fabulous, just turned 89 years old. Great job Dr Craig Assenmacher and thanks!

Excellent Surgeon!! Great Experience!
in Northwood, Ohio |
I would not recommend Dr. Craig to my worst enemy. I broke my shoulder in Jan. and went in for every month for him to do absolutely nothing for me (when I actually saw him and not his assistant.) The whole time I was going to him he may of looked at my arm, range of motion, etc. Maybe twice and that may be saying more than he did. He would tell me one thing and his assistant another. I think he is very arrogant and a terrible doctor. I would not recommend him to anyone who wants to be healed.

I had a scope surgery two months ago. I never spoke to Dr. A until I was on the gurney--just to his PA. I had serious pain a month after surgery and asked for a follow-up. I got the PA again and again two weeks late when the swelling was out of control. I had to ask to see the doctor, rather than the PA. He did see me--for less than two minutes. He was condescending, saying such things as, Well you can't expect me to re-grow cartilage. He did not listen.

Great experience. Very informative. Outstanding bedside manner. Highly recommend Dr. Craig.

I went to Dr. Assenmacher a year ago for a fractured fibula. I had a great experience with Dr. Assenmacher and his office, and my treatment and recovery went excellent. Dr. Assenmacher operated on my ankle and set the fracture perfectly, and I have zero pain or problems with it today. Also, during the 3 month recovery period, he was always available and guided me through the process. I am very happy with my experience at Assenmacher Orthopedics and Dr. Craig Assenmacher!

Dr. Craig Assenmacher is an amazing surgeon!!! He did a total knee revision for me, after another surgeon 2 yrs before made a mess of my knee that affected my whole leg! Dr. Craig literally save my life! I was in terrible pain, my leg was swollen twice its size, and I thought I was gonna lose my leg! Dr Craig did a great job of fixing this disaster! I would give Dr. Craig a 10+ rating!!! His beside manner is also calm & confident!
Walbridge, OH |
My experience was not good at all, He did a scope on my left knee and didn't fix one of the tears on my meniscus. I was in a great deal of pain after surgery and was told I should not be in pain. When I continued to be in pain and called his office to ask what I should do was he could do no more for me.
