Could not have been treated in a more professional manor. I needed a quick visit with the Doctor, They returned my call in a timely manor on a Thursday afternoon and set an appointment with the Doctor for the next morning at 8:15am. I left the Doctors office at 9:10am with my problems and medical needs resolved. This has been my experiences with Dr. Gustke and his staff. Richard P. Shaw

Dr Gustke replaced both my knees, 3 months apart in 2012. I am so thankful to him and all his staff for this wonderful “miracle’ in restoring my mobility. I have had 6 + years of perfect new knees. What a relief.

Had a Partial Knee Replacement, I was very pleased with the procedure that was done. Went to a class that let you know what to expect before and after surgery. Everyone on staff had a specific job and carried out their job efficiently. All appointments were given to you before your surgery date, Pre Op & Post Op.

Dr. Gustke is an amazing surgeon. I have had multiple surgeries on the left hip, not any fault but my own, and Dr. Gustke is one of the only doctors who would touch my hip. From the moment I woke up from my surgery, there has not been any pain what so ever. He is my doctor and my doctor of choice.

Beware BUNDLING - Do not get in the bundling program with Gustke. My 88 year old mother was released from rehab after knee surgery before she was able to safely transfer from her chair to bed to restroom as she had been able to do in her apartment prior to surgery. I tried to explain that to the office person, Penny, and requested to speak with Gustke but no one would listen. I am very disappointed in my mother's care. I doubt anyone would want their mother or grandmother treated this way.
