Patient Comments (3)

No respect for the patients time. I have been there 4 times and have waited 1 to 1 1/2 hours PAST my appointment time every time. They need to respect the patients and not over schedule. I will never go back due to the lack of respect for the patient.

Dr. Niergarth as taken care of my shoulder and knees for shoes. In January, he did a total left knee replacement on me. I am very pleased with the outcome. The scar is small and healed very quickly. I have made excellent progress in all of the necessary movements for my knees.

I think Dr. Niergarth is an excellent orthopedic doctor. He takes time to listen to the patients complaints, shows you the x-rays and other reports and answers all questions clearly and patiently.
