Dr. Pflueger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pflueger "I chose orthopaedics because I prefer interacting with a wide variety of patients, from the young to the elderly, in a way that allows me to improve their quality of life. I enjoy helping patients get better, get stronger and have less pain. I enjoy the opportunity to return patients to their pre-injury level of activity, whether it's golf, tennis, hiking or whatever their leisure or sport activity may be."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pflueger "For me, the patient always comes first. Most patients have already done extensive research into their condition prior to seeing me. I believe that an interactive approach with patients will lead us to a mutually agreed upon treatment plan. I hope to give my patients the opportunity for an improved quality of life with less pain, better function and improved outlook for their future."

One of the most down to earth, straight-forward, doctors in the Prescott area. Has very commendable assistants that know their business. I was not treated as just another client to shuffle through. Talking with me and listening to my feedback was honest. I highly recommend Dr. Pflueger to everyone.

My first visit as a new patient never got to see Dr. Pflueger, pawned off on an assistant who spent more time asking me what I wanted to do rather than a defined plan. What the heck? I could do self diagnosis via the Internet....gezzz!
