The doctor is excellent but his staff is unorganized, callous and no one cares. As long as they get their paychecks. Since Julie the office manager left nothing's the same. I have a feeling that the unorganized staff chased her out. I needed a prescription and it was supposed to go to the pharmacy they said it was sent at 1:54pm. It wasn't sent!!

Dr. Tischler did my total hip replacement surgery in 2012. It has been eight years since the surgery. I recently had a visit with Dr. Tischler, and his examination showed the hip to be strong and fine. He was able to diagnose separate problems with my lower back. He is quick, efficient, very knowledgeable and does great work. I trust him, and highly recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Tischler is magnificent. He's a brilliant surgeon. On October 30, 2019, I had my old knee replacement taken out and he put a NEW knee replacement on. I DON'T REGRET DOING THAT. I NEVER MET A MORE COMPASSIONATE MAN, A MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE, HAS TERRIFIC EXPERTISE AND DOES HE CARE ABOUT EACH ONE OF HIS PATIENTS.

I visited Dr Tischler the wait was over 3 hrs. and he never touched my leg just told me I needed physical therapy for at least 12 visits. His 'bed side' was something to be desired. The visit took all of 5 minutes, would never go back to him ever again.

Dr. Tischler operated on me on June 9, 2016. He did some hip surgery and a knee replacement revision. On June 17, 2016 I began walking without a cane or walker, I haven't done that since January 17, 1987. Dr. Tischler also did a knee replacement revision on my other knee on January 21, 2016. I don't know how to thank a surgeon for giving me my life and freedom to do what I want to now. Dr. Tischler is the best.
