Dr Stinger did my total hip joint replacement about 8 weeks ago. I highly recommend Dr Stinger- he has great passion and skill for his work, is direct and thorough. The surgery took an hour and I was up with a walker shortly after when I got to my room- spent one night in the hospital. He explained everything to me and I never felt rushed. I chose Dr Stinger knowing he would do the surgery and not be training a fellow. He is the best patient advocate. He's the best.

Excellent patient rapport. Explained in detail my knee replacement procedure and asked that my husband be there as a second set of ears. He provided me with a comprehensive notebook that covered the entire knee replacement process from start thru follow up after recovery. He was highly recommended by my internist and I too would highly recommend Dr. Stinger! He also has a rehab staff that was excellent in helping me to reach my goals.

Dr. Stinger has a great bedside manner. He is very nice, very honest and doesn't sugar coat the situation. He seems to be very knowledgable about what he does. He has replaced my right knee and hip and I wouldn't go to anyone else.

Never made me feel.hurried. (or harried). Delivered unpleasant news and reviewed my options; answered my questions; was kind without being condescending. I would, and do, recommend Dr. Stinger without reservation.
