Family member had a rotator cuff repair surgery and ended up leaving with staph infection that resulted in having to get 2 wash-out surgeries (to wash out the infection), a reverse rotator cuff repair surgery, and then 1 year later- a complete rotator cuff replacement due to all the bone that was eaten away by the infection. Horrible and disgusting! Will never recommend anyone to go here ever!

Very unhappy with Dr. Yergler....I had surgery in December for a tear in my miniscus. He said he saw no osteoarthritis and I probably would never need a knee replacement... after surgery I was in more pain then before then ever!! Went back to him got an injection which didn't help. The new xray showed I was bone on bone! Then got a Synvisc infection and was told if that doesn't work then I need a replacement! He was always in too big of a hurry to explain anything or answer questions!
