What People Say About Dr. Eric Kagel, MD

I had ACL replaced in my knee by doctor Kagel in 2008 and the result and care were both excellent. Within 8 months I was backpacking in New Mexico for 10 days carrying a 50 lb pack. I later tore a rotator cuff and went to him again. He referred me for MRI and found the issue. Prescribed 10 weeks of physical therapy that got me back to 90%+ without any surgery that would have taken many months to recover. I am back again with a finger injury.

My initial visit was possible carpel tunnel in both of my arms. He gave me a cortisone shot and sent me to get nerve testing done. The results showed C.T in both of my arms, and the doctor that conducted the testing said that I was a candidate for the surgery. Going back to Dr. Kagel with the results, he asked if the cortisone shot helped, and I explained that the pain came back within a week. He told me that I did not have C.T, and released me of all work restrictions. WORST experience ever!
