Dr. Stoeckle is excellent, seasoned, empathetic, and a competent surgeon. In addition he is proactive and builds confidence throughout the process from first visit to release. I have great respect and admiration for his council and follow through and my success.

Dr. Stoeckle is the type of doctor you see in old movies; kind, knowledgeable and jovial. He takes his time and makes sure you understand every procedure. You can tell he is experienced but he is not cocky. You really couldn't ask for a better doctor.

I got very lucky, Dr. Stoeckle was on duty at the Emergency Room when I came in, and he performed my surgery. He explained everything and answered all my questions. Being new to the area, I was not familiar with him prior to this experience. When telling the tale of my experience, the most common response I get is that I got at least one of the best and more than likely the best surgeon at the hospital! My experience with him before, during and after the surgery validates those opinions.

My surgery experience with Dr Stoeckle was excellent. I had a deep thigh muscle biopsy done five days ago and the wound is already almost healed. I did not experience any pain during the procedure and have had little pain since. I highly recommend Dr Stoeckle.

I have been a patient of Dr. Stoeckle since 1991, with that said, I haven't ever had a problem with getting an appointment when needed and he is always very helpful and informative during my visits/exams. He is also an outstanding surgeon from my previous experience. If looking for a gastro surgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Stoeckle.

I have been a patient of Dr. Stoeckle since 2004. He is the only Surgeon I trust with any type of surgery, EGD and colonoscopy. He is a very caring and compassionate surgeon. I dread the day he retires.

Dr. Stoeckle has been my surgeon for over 30 years. When I brought my mother up to Blacksburg from Florida, he became her surgeon. I would recommend Dave Stoeckle to all my family and friends without reservation.

There is no greater office that I would refer to my friends and family than Dr. Stoeckle's! The staff are always quick to get you in during an emergency, and are always there to greet you with a smile when you arrive. Dr. Stoeckle takes his time to listen carefully to all of your needs/symptoms, and is very knowledgeable in making recommendations for treatment. The care I have always received there has been outstanding, and I have always been made to feel more like family than a patient.

I have had several operations performed by Dr. Stoeckle, all with excellent results. I have enormous confidence in him. He's my go-to-guy! He always takes the time he needs to explain it all to me (and my wife on whom he has also operated)---that's why his waiting room is larger than the neighboring set of offices and nearly always full. I don't mind waiting because he is so good!

My wife and I travel from Draper to see Dr Stoeckle. He is heads above anyother doctor we've seen for gastric/colonoscopy issues. He always has time to listen to our concerns and is very professional in every area. Not only him, but we've always been treated respectfully by his staff. Wonderful job, Dr Stoekel...and thanks for all you do!

Great staff compliments Dr Stockle's abilities. A doctor who tells you exactly what needs to be done. Is honest and forthright. Sometimes a Dr has to give you news you hope not to hear. Dr. Stockle does this with compassion and sincerity. I trust him completely and highly recommend him and his great staff.
