I broke my wrist on vacation and immediately called to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dietz. I had seen an orthopedic surgeon where we were staying and was told I would likely need surgery. The staff at Dr. Dietz's office seemed uncaring and told me the earliest available appointment was 16 days after the day I broke my wrist. I asked if I could be called if there was a cancellation and was told the office was not set up for that. I found a Dr. elsewhere and am scheduled for surgery.

I made an appt. 5 weeks out and never seen the doctor. Waited for 2 hours before I heard other people in the hallway complaining they had been there even longer. Went to the front and demanded a refund of the $100 fee no matter what insurance you have or co-pay, etc. It was easy to find another hand surgeon.

Was referred to Dr. Dietz by my family doctor. It took a while to get my appointment scheduled, because he is in high demand...and for good reason. He is the best doctor. He was very kind and empathetic. He spent quite a bit of time discussing my surgery with me and answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed through my appointment. I had my surgery 3 months ago and am feeling so much better. The staff at the office is very prompt and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Dietz and this office.

Was sent to Dr. Dietz for my Carpal Tunnel that came on during pregnancy. It was unbearable and he recommended surgery. I had to wait over a month for an appointment, but he was the best...I had my surgery and am now symptom free. The office staff was extremely helpful and I actually enjoyed my experience at this office.

My friend referred me to see Dr. Dietz for my Carpal Tunnel. She had surgery with him and was raving about him. I made my appointment and had to wait a month to see him, but it was worth the wait. He is the nicest doctor I have ever seen. He recommended surgery and I am scheduled for that in two weeks. Can't wait for this nagging pain to be gone.

I made my appointment to see Dr. Dietz and am so glad I waited. It was about a month wait to to see him, but he was amazing and I'm so glad I waited ... he was the nicest doctor I have ever seen. The office staff was very nice and the medical assistants in the room were so helpful.

I am sure Dr Dietz is a good doctor, unfortunately, I did not get to see him. After having my first appt (which took 2 months to get) cancelled by the office on that morning, it was rescheduled 3 weeks out. After waiting almost 2 hours in the room, not one person came in to advise me of a delay or apologize for the delay. Having postponed a work call already once, I could not wait any longer. The staff was very unapologetic and did not even check to see why there was a delay.

Was having ankle pain and was referred to Dr. Zingas. He was very thorough and made me feel good about my options. I am finally starting to feel back to normal.

I had to wait a while for my appointment with Dr. Dietz, but I am so glad I did. He was the nicest doctor I have ever seen and he was able to fix my ongoing problem with my elbow. I have referred anyone who complains of a hand/wrist/elbow issue to see him. He's the best!

Dr. Dietz did both of my carpal tunnel release surgeries. The first one took longer than normal for recovery, but Dr. Dietz was reassuring and confident that I would completely heal, which I did. The second surgery had a much shorter recovery time. Dr. Dietz was always pleasant, answered all of my questions and spent time, never making me feel rushed.. Sometimes I had to wait 2 hours to see him, but he always apologized for running behind. He is an excellent surgeon.
