Very positive interaction with Dr. Bischoff. I had both hand and shoulder issues. He explained the hand procedures and was very straightforward in advising me that this may not resolve the shoulder issue but was a necessary and relatively easy carpal tunnel surgery. The staff at this office are friendly yet professional. The office runs like a fine machine. The doctors, in my opinion, are the greatest. I highly recommend this group in general and Dr. Bischoff in particular.

Dr. Bischoff recently did surgery on my dupuytrens contracture and everything has turned out great! I would highly recommend Dr. Bischoff as he's very easy to speak with, listens to and answers all questions and you don't feel like he's in a rush. Wish I would have had it done 2 years ago when I first saw him in lieu of putting it off.

Dr Bischoff was great! He's a quiet man with a gentleness towards his patients. He did Carpal Tunnel l surgery with ulnar nerve surgery also. I've recommended to others!

Had hand surgery to remove a small cyst. After removing bandages and a couple of weeks to heal, I made an appointment as I was having trouble with the finger that was near the removed cyst. The finger began locking up, making it difficult to bend at the knuckle (which I had not experienced before). I was told to give it some time and love. It's been several months now and I am still having my finger lock up making it difficult to type or use the computer mouse. Won't return or recommend.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Bischoff. He handled my complex tendon injury with grace and was extremely diligent. The healing process he put me on after surgery enabled me to get full function of my fingers back, which is almost unheard of in injuries such as mine. Dr. Bischoff was clear in his directions and swift in timing. He always answered my questions. My scar is hardly visible. I would not go to any other hand surgeon in Tulsa. Bischoff is simply the best!

Dr. Bischoff has operated on my hands 4 times. I have had excellent care. He explains everything before he operates. I would recommend Dr. Bischoff to anyone having problems with their hands or fingers.

Dr. Bischoff literally saved my life. He discovered rheumatoid disease in my hands before any blood work. He has done Carpal tunnel release surgery on both hands. He also did surgery on all five fingers at once on my left hand to repair. That surgery had never been done. Dr. Bischoff did that surgery in 9 minutes! My recovery was outstanding! I have recommended family and friends to him and will continue to do so. He is unequivocally the best hand surgeon in Tulsa! Bedside manner is the best!!

Dr Bischoff did surgery on my daughter's wrist after her car accident. He has been very kind, thorough & straight forward since the first appt. She's recovery well by following his instructions. He came highly recommended to us by the attending ER doctor. Her surgery was at Oklahoma Surgical Hospital & they were amazing!! They called the next week to check on her. We are happy!! Dr Bischoff's nurse is nice but she's all business. Their office is very busy so they don't have time to chit chat.

Dr Bischoff is great, but his assistant is unfriendly and uncaring. The office has no consideration of your time or schedule. 1 waited over an hour twice and over 30 minutes once - then they want to have an attitude that you are not happy about your wait! Good doc in a not so good office.

I had carpal tunnel surgery. While the processes of diagnosis was quick, scheduling surgery was quick, post op appointment was quick, the diagnosis, severity of my condition, what to expect after the surgery was never explained to me. Only call if you have a fever. Recovery was foreign and worse than I had anticipated. After surgery, no one called to see how I was. Couldnt get through to the office.The medical assistant is awful as far as personable. Never even looked at me.
