TERRIBLE Dr. I had surgery to repair a tear in my hip. Dr Zenheder claimed for two years to not know why it never got better. A second doctor was able to tell right away that Dr. Zehnder did a bad job on his surgery. He left a sharp hook on the bone, the damage caused me to need a hip replacement at 28. He not only ruined my hip but hid the damage he did to protect himself long enough that I could not file malpractice. His priority is himself, not his patients. DO NOT USE!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Zehnder is the kindest man who spends time with his patient and explains everything. He did a reverse shoulder replacement on my husband and he is doing fantastic. He has a full range of motion and only needed pain meds the day after his surgery. We would highly recommend Dr. Scot Zehnder.

Dr. Zehnder takes his time to thoroughly diagnose and determine next steps. Thanks to him and his expertise, I've had a total knee replacement and am pain free. And when I encountered shoulder pain, he was without a doubt the doctor I returned to see. It's easy to schedule appointments, and his staff is helpful and and polite, answering all questions. Dr. Zehnder is on time for appts, he is diligent and genuinely cares about his patients, and he is honest (sharing his overall concerns).

Dr. Zehnder just worked on my 16 year old son with a broken collar bone....I could not say more about the care he and his staff gave us. A wonderful process from start to finish.

Unfortunately for the doctor, who is quite friendly and helpful himself, has some of the worst staff in the world. They never answer their phones, forcing you to play phone tag with them to arrange appointments. It’s truly a shame because he seems to care about his patients.

I started with Dr. Zehnder in August 2014. He showed excellent care and empathy through a broken leg, two broken shoulders, and a knee replacement. He is excellent at explaining what and why he is doing what he is doing and my surgery was a complete success. I could not be happier with him or the results of his care. I would not only recommend him to friends, family, I would urge them to see him.

Dr Zehnder performed my ACL surgery back in April. From the initial consultation to the procedure itself to all the follow-ups, he has been fabulous at explaining what needed to be done, reviewing all the steps, addressing my concerns, and being careful not to push me too hard but at the same time pushing me to make sure I healed quickly and properly. I highly recommend him for any procedure like this.

Everyone in this office is friendly and efficient, including the doctor himself. I was in and out of there on both of my appointments. They set up my MRI appointment for me and dealt with my insurance company for me as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Zehnder and his staff.

Dr. Zehnder is an excellent surgeon. I had a torn rotator cuff and had quite a bit of pain and after a thorough examination his recommendation was to have surgery. He very clearly explained the good and the potetialy the bad and my discomfort was well worth the "gamble." The surgery couldn't have gone any better. I had a rapid PT recovery - 3 months - was just about perfect. It's now 5 months later and I just played 36 holes of golf over the weekend. He did a wonderful job and I did my part - PT

Dr. Scott Zehnder is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I have confidence in his knowledge, skills, and trust him. Since my left hip replacement surgery in January 2017 I feel my quality of life getting better. He is sincere and caring and I am happy that he is my doctor. Connie Nagle

The visit with Dr. Zehnder was refreshing, especially when compared to the other doctor offices we visited. He is kind, caring, knowledgeable, respectful and helpful. He treated us as human beings and his humble nature was calming and reassuring. He asked questions to gather information and listened well. He explained everything in a manner that we didn't need a M.D. to interpret. We left with options to consider and a plan for healing until we have made a decision regarding next steps.

I had been struggling with shoulder and bicep issues for about 8 months. Another doctor had performed surgery but issues persisted. I could not lift my arm above my head. I scheduled an appt with Dr. Zehnder and he recommended a second operation to scope the shoulder. Within 3 weeks after surgery I had full range of motion. I would recommend Dr. Zehnder to anyone who has shoulder or bicep tendon issues. He did a great job resolving my issues and I'm now back in the gym working out.

Dr. Scott W. Zehnder is a wonderful doctor. Besides being extremely nice, he is generous with his time and expertise. He is easy to talk to and is able to explain things so you can understand them. It's not all medical jargon that is hard to understand, unlike other doctors. I have all the confidence in the world in him.
