I had my left knee replaced by Dr. Sorscher. Earlier in the year the knee had been evaluated by a different Dr who referred me to Dr. Sorscher. The statement from the other Dr was that I would need a constrained replacement or even a hinged knee. Dr Sorscher examined me and did a regular knee replacement. The surgery went fine and 3 weeks later I am nearly able to walk without a limp. I highly recommend Dr Sorscher, he does not have a great beside manner, but he is eminently qualified.

Dr. Sorscher is a great doc &good person. Probably a little misunderstood with so called callous behavior. But I know he is highly concerned with all of his patients. He will probably be the first to admit to fast pace days, little time to spend with us. I like him, I recommend him to family and friends. I do have a problem with CORE institute in AZ, affiliated with Dr. Sorscher. Called patient advocate to voice some complaints, concerns, (took forever to get refund) never called me back...yet!

I would like to say Thank You to the "Best Orthopedic Surgeon" that I know for taking care of me when I needed his expertise and caring attitude that he showed me when I visited him for any type of orthopedic care that I needed. He is the "Best Orthopedic Surgeon" because I used to work in his office and along side of him in surgery as his Physician Assistant and when I needed to have my knees replaced, I went to Dr. Sorscher because I placed my trust in him and his excellent surgical skills.

I appreciate that Dr. Sorscher and his Genesys team made my first surgery, a total hip replacement, a fearless and painless one. From the consultation with Dr. Sorscher to the reading materials (The Hip Notebook) on preparation for surgery and after-surgery recovery, I felt secure with the whole process. The best part is no pain since waking from surgery! No complications and have followed Dr. Sorscher's advice on trying activities. Back to full activity, no complaints!
in Swartz Creek, MI |
Dr. Sorscher is not anxious to do surgery if it is not really needed by the patient. He listens to your questions and concerns, and uses that information to make a recommendation. He takes time to listen to the patient. Because he does several knee and hip replacements every week, I am confident that he knows what he is doing. I expect good results from my upcoming knee surgery.

I didn't have hip replaced as scheduled due to having 2 stents implanted and now have to wait 6 months to a year, but I thought Dr. was rather blunt and not a all friendly on our last visit as well as not giving me any options to hip pain other than Tylenol arthritis pills.don't know if I'll go back to him.

Everyone is Helpful and professional .
in Flushing, MI |
Dr. Sorscher, his staff and their facilities all work together for a pleasant experience. The injection I received in my hip has alleviated the pain and allowed me to postpone surgery.
Milan, MI |
I saw him after I broke my wrist. He did not spend much time with me on my initial visit. He seemed aloof and disinterested. I saw him a total of 3 times for my wrist and he was like that on all appointments. I asked him about numbness and he seemed to dismiss it as normal.
in Millington mi |
I my right knee and left hip replaced the same day in January 2000. I have had seventeen years of pain free living thanks to Dr. Sorscher. Forever grateful!

Simply put...he's the best!

Dr. Sorcher-knee is excellent as far as I'm concerned. He's very pleasant, through, explains everything so you can understand it. He has replaced both of my knees & I am completely satisfied. I'd recommend him to anyone.
