I have had two orthopedic surgeries with Dr Adler and both were excellent. He gave me the correct diagnosis and guidance to plan with very nice bedside manner. His whole staff was great, congenital and efficient, and encountered no problems. I am very thankful that we have such a skilled, wonderful surgeon in our community. I would definitely recommend Dr. Adler to my family and friends, in fact anyone, and would give him 5 ??!!

From my first appointment- which I set up myself during the Covid-19 crisis- the office of Dr. Adler has been more than helpful. I appreciated the fact that options were explained to me and the benefit/outcome of those choices. After a complete hip replacement in July, I am well on the way to walking and functioning as good as new! Thanks OI! and Staff and Dr. Adler!!

I had both hips replaced and my knee scoped by Dr. Adler. Dr. Adler showed me my problems and explained clearly what needed to be done to relieve my pain. All operations went very smoothly and without any complications. The results were just exactly what Dr. Adler explained to me and has made a huge difference in my life. Dr. Adler came highly recommended to me from a multitude of local patients that he previously helped. I recommend him to everybody who speaks to me about knee or hip issues. I am convinced that the most important factor in any medical procedure is the doctor who is doing the actual work. I recommend Dr. Alder to everybody for hip and knee procedures. He gets an A+ from me.

Dr. Adler is an awesome doctor. I had both hips replaced by Dr. Adler and mt experience was wonderful both times. His care of his patients is extraordinary. He takes the time to explain exactly what the problem is and what is needed to fix it. He is friendly, kind, caring, and extremely knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Adler to family and friends.

I like Dr Adler very much. He is responsive and proactive. My previous Ortho Dr. offered me no help at all even though my knees were bone on bone. Very satisfied with Dr Adler and will recommend him to others.

I am a 68 year old male who had a total knee replacement by Dr. Adler and after six weeks I was golfing and have no pain. Physical therapy offered by Orthopedic Institute was excellent and I had minimal pain during my recovery period of six weeks. I talked to other patients that had surgeries by Dr. Adler and their outcomes were the same.I have also talk to patients that had surgeries done by doctors that are not associated with Orthopedic Institute and their outcomes were not as good as mine.

Had total knee replacement with Dr Adler last week. While it is not a fun procedure, Dr. Adler set expectations and his office was extremely flexible in scheduling the procedure. I also felt very safe in the clinic during this pandemic.

The doctor and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I had all the information I needed. They displayed great concern on my well being and showed that they really did care about my recovery. I am extremely satisfied with my progress and will be having my other knee done as soon as doctor Adler thinks I’m ready. The care after the surgery was very good also. The care they gave me was more than I ever expected.

Highly recommended! Dr. Adler is an outstanding doctor. He speaks to you so that you can understand what he is saying and he answers your questions honestly. He did my surgery and other than the general 'surgical' pain, I am pain free. This is a great institute and he is a wonderful doctor. I would highly recommend him and actually have already recommended him to people I known.

I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of my recent hip replacement surgery. Dr. Adler and his team were the best. From assessment through surgery and recovery my expectations were always met. All of my questions were answered and I was treated professionally and with compassion. Thank you, Tom

The best of the best. Dr. Adler knows what he is doing and can explain exactly what needs to be done. He has performed a knee surgery on me along with replacing a hip and I have no problems with either and can still hike miles upon miles and do whatever I want without pain or worry.
