What People Say About Dr. Michael Maier, MD

I went to see Dr. Maier about pain in my knees. I have osteoarthritis and we discussed treatment methods. He showed me the x-rays & described procedures that could be done. He did not suggest knee replacement surgery because it is a major surgery; he suggested I try other treatments before I do something so life changing.. I opted for the other treatments & am much better than I was before. He is knowledgeable & straight forward. He gives the facts and lets the patient decide how to move forward

He is the worst doctor I have seen so far. He just thinks money issues. He does not think about helping people! Never! He is a liar! Never, never, never go him!!!! I have gone to his office for my acl and menuscus problem. At the beginning, he said he could fix everything but not hundred percent but he said if I work on mt up leg muscles well I could even play soccer back. After not dealing with my insurance, for every appointment he changed his word. He spend my two month for nothing!!

New patient 5/17/7. My experience of this doctor wasn't great. Upon him walking into the room, I wasn't even sure if he was going to shake my hand. He was very aggressive in his delivery. He brushed off my concerns and harped on their isn't much he could do for me, other than I should lose 40lbs and my knee pain would go away. It wasn't said in caring way it was very insulting. Another doctor in his office over heard his brash tones and kept looking at him. I felt horrible. Will not be returning

Saw Dr Maier for both knees, previously had been going to VA(what a joke). Dr Maier took the time to go over my MRI's and xrays of both knees. Told me one knee could benefit from surgery, other knee just needed to keep getting injections which have help before, but hurt from VA doctor. Was leary of getting injection, but did not hurt much and help; was 90% better for over 6 months, just got my 2nd injection and waiting to see how long will last. waiting to complete my deductible until my sx

My experience Dr Maier was one of the worst experiences of my life. He is one of those few doctors that forgot why they chose to be a doctor. He is ego driven and absolutely the worst doctor I've ever had in my life. His ego is way too big. I would not recommend him to anyone.
