One of my best medical experiences ever. Dr. Stiegler took his time, listened to my concerns and provided me with all the information I needed for my diagnosis. He is very friendly and genuinely cares for his patients and for the work he does. He is what all doctors should be like. He has performed services for members of my family with the same attitude, effort, care and concern. If you need a surgeon, you found the best and I truly mean that.

Dr. Stiegler and his staff have always gone above and beyond to give my husband the medical care that he needs. My husband has had 4 surgeries by Dr. Stiegler and he has always given him excellent care and has a great personality. Last year my husband surgery was more involved than what was originally thought and Dr. Stiegler was very attentive in checking on him and making sure that he got the best possible care. I recommend him to everyone concerning surgery.

Dr. Stiegler's practice is one of the most professional medical offices that I have ever been to. Everyone I encountered was friendly, informative, and seemed to go all out to make me, as well as other patients in the waiting area, feel comfortable and at ease. If all medical practices operated the same, no one would "dread" going to the doctor.
