Dr Graehl did a total hip replacement on me several years ago. My pain never went away. After a year and several X-rays, Dr Graehl said it was part of the healing process. I went to a second Ortho surgeon. After 5 minutes, the doctor said my hip had been loose for a long time. Dr Graehl never saw this. I had the second doctor do a second hip replacement on Dr Graehl's work. My pain is gone. Dr Graehl is a very nice man and had been my doctor for years. Unfortunately not any more.

Dr. Graehl was recommended to me for my hip problems, and I'm so glad I chose him. He was very clear throughout the entire process about the recommended treatments, and ultimate replacement surgery. He and his staff are professional and compassionate, and as well they have been eager to share my successful recovery! I would definitely recommend Dr. Graehl to anyone suffering with hip or knee pain! Thank you, Dr. Graehl!

Dr Graehl happened to be the on call physician when I phoned. He patiently listened to the situation, followed through, and communicated back to me in full detail. He was personable, non-condescending, and he earned my trust. His response was prompt and attentive. He really knows what he is doing, and seems to be a man with superior integrity!
