Great doctor and did a great job on my femur surgery! Office is not wheelchair or handicap friendly, No slide boards and I had to bring my own to get on X ray table. Also the wheelchair ramp is unsafe and you have to go uphill to get to the electric doors that need to be checked out also. I suggest you get in a wheelchair and try to get into the office and Xray table and see what I am talking about.

Met with Dr. Ehlert today regarding an ankle injury. Very friendly and professional. Made initial diagnosis before X-rays and then suggested not drawing any conclusions until after X-rays were available. After X-rays revealed no fractures, Dr. Ehlert recommended an ankle boot to stabilize the injured area and also therapy sessions, but added that the therapy sessions were totally my decision. I decided to do therapy at home, and Dr. Ehlert provided documentation for therapy exercises.
