A very busy MD, scheduling time is at least 3 weeks away. A knowledgeable and caring MD with required expertise; he called me a week after therapy started to know how I was doing. Visited 2 other Ortho Surgeons and Dr. Mintzer by far was the best all around. His staff and receptionist lack friendliness, empathy and some of them even social skills, they are a cut/dry staff. In a business environment this is OK, but not for a physicians' staff.

Had a rotator cuff rupture. he reviewed the MR with me and scheduled surgery ASAP. He accomodated my work schedule. Repair went well and I'm back on the golf course in 6 months. Have to take it slow but the future is bright. I am in my late 60's but very active and plan to continue.

I started at Jewett with Dr Craig Mintzer and Patti. They gave me excellent treatment on my knee issues and kept me going as a basketball official for 15 years! Then they referred me on to Dr Pratik Desai who replaced my left hip and left knee last year. Excellent results and Dr Desai is awesome! His staff is outstanding. Monica, Judy, Kim, Brandi!

Dr. Mintzer does not listen to patients concerns and prefers to be a comedian. I have interacted with several orthopedic surgeons in my life and Dr. Mintzer is by far the least empathetic and the most abrasive/condescending. I transferred from another doctor due to moving across the country. He looked at my previous MRI and did not want to hear about my symptoms or concerns. He did not take the time to educate me so I could make the best decision for my health. Instead, he chose to make jo

Total waste of time with bad advice. I have been an athlete since I was 5 and now am an older athlete. After 9 orthopedic surgeries, I am still competing - great surgeons. I also spent many years working in the medical field. As a new patient he spent only 2 minutes with me and knows nothing about me. He told me virtually nothing can be done for my shoulder, torn ligaments and atrophied muscles. He also said I should not seek any other medical opinion, wow! There are treatments that can be done.

Dr. Mintzer is amazing! I will send all my family and friends to him for shoulder surgery. After 2 years of pain in my right shoulder, he did a biceps and rotator cuff repair and my arm feels great. He is professional and very knowledgeable - he showed me pictures and explained the procedure he performed. Great experience and will not go to anyone else!
