As others stated Dr. Pfisterer is very good and his bedside manner is in fact stellar. However his staff absolutely positively SUCKS! The first time I saw him I was kept waiting close to an hour and then informed they had forgotten about me - hey, at least they were honest! Second time, similar instance - kept waiting! I had a similar incident once and YET AGAIN today only this time I left after 20 minutes. It was an emergency visit for a possible infection after an injection and I was told to come in at 2. Instead I got there at 2:15 knowing how they keep you waiting and left at 2:35. There is no justifiable reason and or excuse why they don't pick up a phone to say the doctor is running late! His x-ray tech is even worse. An extremely unpleasant wretch! When I called the day before to report the possible infection the call was returned over 12 hours later! NOT GOOD AT ALL! Obvioulsy no one is manning the phones for emergency - that concerns me profusely had this been after a surgery

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.
