I had a complicated fracture just below my R shoulder and with pins, etc., Dr. Giel put it back together so that I now have 99% of my range of motion and good strength in that shoulder. He even put the scar in a good place so that in a bathing suit you don't even see it.

I do not recommend Dr Giel. Dr Giel bedside manners were lacking. I will not return.

Dr. Giel solved my problem and recommended the right treatment. He did not recommend more than I needed, nor did he order tests I did not need. I found him to be humorous and attentive to my problem. I appreciate what he did for me.

Dr Giel performed a reverse shoulder repair in Feb 2017. I could not be happier. He took time, actually LISTENED, under promised, and over performed.

On 7 February I had a consultation with Dr. Giel at the Ortho Memphis office. During the visit he agreed to repair a horizontal tear to my meniscus by stitching it back together. On 27 February I unaware that the discretion of the procedures had changed, I signed an agreement to receive a partial meniscectomy (not the procedure I wanted). Although I asked Dr. Giel on the day of surgery for clarification, I only received reassurance that everything was going as planned. Very untrustworthy!

I called & attempted to schedule a NP appointment as Dr. Giel came highly recommended. I injured the same knee I had previous surgery on 7 years ago. The office staff refused to schedule an apt without me having my records from previous surgery. I obtained records and physically drove them to the office, thinking I could then schedule an appt. I was told an office manager would review them & call me back to schedule an appt. 7+ days passed, no apt, knee still hurting. I went elsewhere.

Absolutely an outstanding surgeon! I had 2 successful surgeries on my right upper arm after sustaining a terrible fall. I received the most professional care from Dr. Giel and his staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Giel for any of your Orthopedic needs. I say this with the utmost confidence in him.. Gratefully, Mary Farino Mathews
