Dr.Printz is the best doctor I know. His bed side manner is the best. He is always concerned on how you are feeling and follows up with your concerns. I had my right and left hip replacement with him and I do not have any complaints. I also take my 79 year old mom and he is taking great care of her as well. Highly recommend Dr. Printz his is the best you can ask for in an Orthopedist.

I do not recommend Dr Prinz , since the first appointment he showed not interest to treat me cause I had a surgery with another Doctor and he said why don't you go back with "your doctor who performed the surgery" I said his office its far and I did not like his treatment.. He was upset . He seamed like he was doing me a favor, my daughter was with me and she saw the rudnes from this Doctor. He never answer my questions. He said sorry I have no idea what is going on with your left arm. NOT GOOD!
