      I have seen Dr. Theiss for several years. I have a very high regard for him and his approach to treatment. He's thorough and conservative. He's a surgeon but does not rush to a decision to do surgery. He'll try other, less invasive approaches first. I have some serious orthopedic problems and have never had surgery because he has successfully treated me by other means. However, my rating is affected by how difficult it has been over the years to see him and that is getting much worse.

      Dr. Theiss' Care Philosophy

      The personal reward I realize in my profession is seeing patients enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. Injuries and degenerative diseases can prevent people from achieving the quality of life they deserve. I take a careful and conservative approach to managing a patient's care to restore them to an active lifestyle.
