Dr. Singer is one of the best surgeons I have met. He takes time with you and explains everything that he will be performing. When you go for surgery his bedside manner is what you want in a surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. It truly is the best here, I cannot express it enough. Everyone is just so wonderful there. Highly recommend!

this was my first experience with a broken bone and at 71 years old i was very scared to say the least but dr singer has such a calming and caring way that he put me completely at ease. i had almost no pain after the surgeries to put in the hardware and then to take it out. my therapist, kurt, was also excellent and i am now able to do everything always did before. thanks to all the great staff at both places. yvonne vangel

Dr Singer is always positive, compassionate, through and totally engaged while he is with me. My spirits are always lifted every time I am with him. Also the staff are friendly, helpful and reflect Dr Singer's pleasant attitude. Mirela and Reniqa are two examples of making a visit to this office a pleasant experience. Thank you all for your excellent patient service! Sincerely, Don Yokley
