What People Say About Dr. Ralph Liebelt, MD
Reply
Dr Liebelt has been my surgeon for over 10 years. He did the 7th and 8th surgery on my back, trying to repair a botched job by a different surgeon at a different practice. He also had to replace both of my hips. He's confident but not cocky. He cares and cares not only for the patient but the patients family as well. Granted he's usually not doing life saving surgeries but he does do life altering, for the better, procedures. If you, a family member or friend are need a ortho surg see DrLiebelt!
