Patient Comments (2)

Dr Trager's staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I saw Dr. Trager for an injury and was quickly taken care of. I was given a custom splint that was covered by my insurance made for me at the same time as my visit. Dr. Trager and staff took time to answer my questions and care for my injury.

Waited over an hour and spent 5 minutes with me. Didn't help at all and told me to do everything I was already doing. Left office still in pain with no helpful info. Found another doctor that wasn't even a specialist and he has already helped me more.
