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.
