One of thee best decisions I’ve ever made - Dr. Reister did an exceptional job and I live and exercise pain free now. Exceptional Surgeon!

I was really impressed with my first appointment with Dr Reister. I was there for a cortisone shot, X-ray and consult to schedule surgery for a shoulder replacement. I was in and out in a half hour. He was very personable. Nice change from my last few experiences. Highly recommend

A total pro who knows what he is doing. Shoulder pain for a year corrected with minimal treatment and great effectiveness. Among the best docs I’ve ever seen.

Dr. Reister has been my orthopedic doctor for a few things. He is good at what he does. I do prefer to see him over just seeing his PA and I have seen both on most occasions. If you are looking for straight answers, give him a call.

Dr. Reister completed an arthroscopy of my left shoulder. His pre-op explanation of the surgery as well as post-op review was excellent. I am now 2 and a half weeks post op and the shoulder is healing nicely.

Dr Reister has done arthroscopic surgery on my knee. He is a very competent and caring doctor. He makes sure things are explained clearly so that the patient can understand. I would most definitely recommend him for anyone having to have orthopedic surgery.
