Having had my right bicep torn from my forearm. Then having left bicep tear from my shoulder..there was never a doubt in my mind who I would go to to have repair my elbows repaired. Dr. Daniel Fletcher. He is knowledgeable, patient and thorough. We are working through the issue methodically but rapidly. I rated the wait time over 45 minutes for my previous visits, but in this last case I was in and out in less that 30. This included wait time, xrays and four shots

Excellent care from start to finish. Would not go anywhere else!

Dr Fletcher did a great job from diagnosis, to surgery (had to re-attach the bicep tendon to the forearm) , to follow-ups, and to now having given me permission to begin strengthening my. I would highly recommend him.

If there ever was an A Team, Dr. Fletcher and his staff are it! He leaves nothing to chance. His method reminds me of what my father use to preach. Measure twice, cut once. He is the epitome of plan your work and work your plan.

From diagnosis to surgery to therapy/recovery, it has been a great experience. Dr. Fletcher was very informative and aided me in my decision making process. I highly recommend Dr. Fletcher.

Our experiences at Trenton Orthopedics and specifically, Dr. Fletcher, could not have gone any better. Dr. Fletcher is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He treated my son's injury that he suffered in ice hockey and the plan of care was excellent. In addition, he treated my shoulder injury and again, the treatment of care was excellent. The entire experience is unlike most doctor visits - extremely efficient. Very little wait time, very friendly staff - a truly well run organization.

Our family has benefited immensely from our long time, close relationship with Dr. Fletcher. We first met Dr. Dan in 2008 when my son Carson broke his wrist playing ice hockey. After many visit for various injuries, Carson's goal is "to become an orthopedic surgeon like Dr. Fletcher". From shoulders, tennis elbow and broken fingers, Dr. Dan has helped our children get back to the playing field. We trust him with our lives!

Suffering with carpal tunnel I had the fortunate experience of seeing dr. Fletcher at Trenton Orthopedic Group. From the first appointment I found him to be very personable, knowledgable and I knew he would be the right person to do my hand surgery. I am almost two weeks out and my hand is almost healed and all the pain is gone! The operation was a success. Thank you Dr. Fletcher!

Called their offices. More than a half an hour on the phone with person who handles auto accidents. Had no clue that insurance was covered or by how much. Tried to switch to them from Mercer Bucks; the first words out of their mouths were that Dr. Fletcher would not go to a deposition, would not act as a witness, etc. Amazing. What a terrible experience... and they were RECOMMENDED by another Doctor. Been in the healthcare business my whole life... never seen anything this staff. Terrible.
in Trenton, NJ |
Arrogant. Barely listens to patients. Waited more than an hour for a 5 minute followup. I did not feel like Dr. Fletcher listened to me or believed the pain I described. He performed 2 tests, couldn't diagnose my pain, wouldn't even discuss providing a simple medical excuse for work, and sent me to a different specialist who then diagnosed the reason for my discomfort which turns out IS a disorder that affects my hands. Dr. Fletcher failed to diagnose those very symptoms I described. Stay away.
