I have been seeing Dr. Pfisterer Jr. since the ending months of 2017. I love the care I get at this office. The office staff is very friendly, efficient & I feel relaxed with them. Appointments seem easy to make. The Dr. has a great bedside manner. He understands what is going on with my medical situation & explains to me. He makes me feel at ease. Very knowledgeable of course in his field ! I would definitely recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon !

Not very good. He wrote the wrong prescription for physical therapy. My left knee has the torn meniscus. He wrote my right knee.
