in Troy, MI |
I am 73 in all my years of seeing doctors .Dr Dietzel is only doc to ever call me in person ,a couple times to check on me.He replaced shoulder great job
in Haslett, MI |
Dr. Dietzel has done surgery on both my shoulders and did a great job. He is a dedicated and compassionate doctor who has always explained what needed to be done before surgery and then after surgery would spend as much time as needed to explain what was done during surgery. I would recommend Dr. Dietzel to anyone having shoulder problems or needing shoulder surgery.
in East Lansing, MI |
Dr. Dietzel performed a routine surgery a few years ago on a close relative that devastated his life. The surgery had to be reversed, but even after the second surgery he was permanently maimed by Dr. Dietzel's errors. The doctors who reversed the surgery could not believe the level of incompetence shown and the damage that Dr. Dietzel inflicted. He would have been far better off with no surgery at all. Further, he was initially nonresponsive and defensive to complaints.
