I have been seeing Dr. Schertzinger for about 6 months. I recently moved here from the Boston area. After having the same Orthopedic Surgeon for 28 years I didn't think I would find another Dr. to even come close to my former Doctor, well I am very happy that I have chosen well twice. Dr. Schertzinger is a Doctor that I have complete trust in my wellbeing. Mrs. Juanita A. Ridings

I needed a quick appointment for my neck, and I was able to get in with Dr. Schertzinger at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers. Dr. Schertzinger took x-rays, then reviewed the x-rays with me. He showed me what he saw and made sure I understood it. He took the time to ask me a list of questions, and then he discussed treatment options with me. I appreciated the time he took with me, his explanations of treatment, and I'm happy to say I'm doing well.

After going to a couple of spine card doctors and getting anything from no help to misdiagnosing, I finally got my wife to Dr. Schertzinger. As opposed to the earlier 'docs', Dr, Schertzinger was thorough, took plenty of time, listened well and asked her many questions in her visit. Then he followed up with scans and arrived at a treatment regimen and therapy for her back problem. With his background in sports medicine, etc., he is well qualified to deal with many orthopedic problems.

Excellent Physician who takes the time to figure out the root cause of your problem. He and his staff were caring and helped me tremendously with reversing arthritis in my hips. I highly recommend this physician and practice.

As a former patient with a Complex Medical History, I can safely attest to Dr Z's Exceptional questioning and LISTENING Skills-both of which culminated into the most THOROUGH relationship I have ever had with any Physician, much less one treating me for Chronic Pain WHILE I was going through treatment for Hep-C. His Patience, skill as a Physician and overall Demeanor are second to none. I realize he is in the Position to HAVE TO say No to some folks, but for those who he can treat~WORTH IT~
