I've recommended Dr. Fuchs over and over he's replaced my hips one knee and done rotator cuff surgery each time my recovery was fantastic and mylife has been restored to very active. He listens to concerns and is open about all aspects of the process! I hope he doesn't retire Before I finish my bionic transformation! Love this doctor!!

Have seen Dr. Fuchs in the past, every appointment but the first he belittled and doubted me. Did not even do xrays. Made appointment with Dr. Roberts of the same group for a second opinion, he immediately did xrays which showed bone on bone in both knees. Now scheduled for surgery, so sorry I put myself thru terrible pain for the last year with Dr. Fuchs. Should have switched much sooner.

I went to Dr. Fuch's for a second opinion on my left hip. He accepted my case and did a removal of all pins in my hip as they were no longer needed. A year later my hip was quite painful and an MRI was done and I had to have a total hip replacement as bone was not good at all. He was at all times, helpful, caring and concerned for my well being and recovery. Getting an app't was timely, his assistant always returned my calls in a timely manner. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

After having an extremely difficult time making an appointment. I was received In doubtful manner by the doctor. I expressed the severe pain in my knee to Dr. Fuchs and requested an MRI, which I was arrogantly dismissed. Reluctantly, I accepted his prognoses that it was just inflamation,. After continuing to be in severe pain for several more weeks, I scheduled an appointment with another doctor for a second opinion and was told that my meniscus was torn and would require surgergy.

I brought my mother for an Appointment November 24th 2015. Service was prompt and he gave her recommendation for physical therapy, but didn't give her the prescription. Have been trying for last 2 weeks to get someone other than a machine to return her calls or send the recommended info for therapy in Springfield Mas. which is where she is from can someone please look into that for my mom Doris Robinson , Springfield Mass
