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!

After being a patient of Dr. Mintzer's for five years and three arthroscopic surgeries, my respect for his skill as a surgeon is high. He's amazingly good at his profession. For me, however, after five years, the true measure of the man lies in his intelligence, wit, and personality. I hold him in the highest esteem for his dogged determination outside the operating room. Mine is a deep debt of gratitude for his devotion to me, personally, as a patient. Dr. Mintzer made a difference.

First issue was that time to recover was NOT discussed. It was SUBSTANTIALLY longer than I was lead to believe. However, the bigger issue is with Jewett in general. To start, I have VERY good insurance and paid all my bills post Sx. Then I got a bill for$272 more than 6 MONTHS after the surgery. I reluctantly paid it. What got me even more upset is that I got a bill over TWO YEARS after my surgery asking for another $300. Don't go here... They will keep sending you bill FOREVER.

Saw Dr. Mintzer after almost 3 months of being in pain with my knee. Had Chiropractic adjustments but they didn't take care of the problem. I cautiously saw Dr. Mintzer as I had read reviews but pro and cons. Without a doubt this is one of the most intelligent, caring, and knowledgeable surgeons in his genre. I can't recommend him highly enough. He is cut to the chase, humorous, kind, caring and diligent about his patients. I respect him and would go to him again in a minute.

Dr. Mintzer operated on both shoulders..One torn rotator cuff and the other was bone spurs. He did a terrific job on both. He is an excellent surgeon.
