Terrible doctor please don't waste your time. This doctor does not keep his word and does not get things done in a timely manner all while his patient is in pain. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone

I had both of my knees replaced by Dr. Doerr and the replacements are great with a lot less pain than before replacement. The care after replacement has been very good.

Dr. Doerr and Julie were so helpful! I had a knee surgery which went really well. I was surprised a few days afterwards to get a personal phone call from Dr. Doerr to see how I was doing. Everyone in their office was friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend him for your orthopedic needs.

Dr. Doerr has given me back my life as far as I am concerned. Before my two total knee surgery which Dr. Doerr preformed I couldn't walk even a half block without crying from the pain. Now, I walk 3 miles a day, have over 30 pounds and feel like have an actual life to live. Thank you Dr. Doerr, you are a Good send.

I wish I could rate higher, I am so pleased with the level of personal care Dr Doerr and Julie gave me both before and after my surgery. I have never had my actual surgeon call me to check on me multiple times. I was living with such excruciating pain before i called. The pre-operation care was phenomenal and i was up and walking hours after surgery without pain. This is what medical care should be in our country. I trust this man and his staff with my family after the care they gave me. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend him to anyone who needs help, they will take the best care of you and will treat you like family.

My son had a nagging pain in his heel and Dr. Doerr was amazing in his help with it. He is a great doctor that clearly takes interest in his patient's well being and truly cares about getting them to good health. We felt that he treated us like he would any member of his own family. We would absolutely recommend Dr. Doerr and his awesome assistant Julie to anyone in need of orthopedic assistance!

Dr. Doerr did my knee replacement - he is AMAZING!! His number one priority is his patient and their successful recovery. Every decision he makes is in the best interest of his patient. I need to have my other knee replaced - Dr. Doerr is the only doctor I would trust to do it! He and his assistant Julie are an awesome team!!

Once it was determined that I had a ruptured disk, Dr. Doerr and his assistant Julie worked to gain approval for an MRI and subsequent surgery. I was in severe pain and with their help my surgery was scheduled and completed quickly. I have experienced significant weekly improvement during the post operative 6 weeks period and expect full recovery shortly.

I had knee replacement surgery last Thanksgiving. My golf game had suffered as I wasn't able to swing without pain. I'm back playing golf and my scores have dropped and even came in 1st place in a tournament last weekend. Dr. Doerr and Julie are great.

It has been a year since my knee surgery with Dr. Doerr and I am very happy with my results. Dr. Doerr is a no-nonsense, efficient physician. I would highly recommend him. He does not waste time with chit-chat unless you have a question concerning your knee and then he explains it very well.

I trust Dr. Doerr with my life! I have received excellent care from him and his staff, and if I could rate him above 5 stars, I would. His nurse Julie is awesome and took care of every detail so I never worried about paperwork or any detail left undone. I am grateful for the care I have received. You are in good hands with Dr. Doerr. I would highly recommend. Thank you Dr. Doerr & Julie!

Very pleased overall with back surgery. One thing caught me by surprise, tightness in back about 4 weeks after surgery. After calling them, I learned that is normal. Would have been nice to know before it happened, I thought I damaged my back again. Julie is the best. Hospital stay was excellent. Dr. Doerr did a great job. Would recommend him and his staff.

An absolute nightmare! Never allowed in decision making process, unanswered questions by both Doerr & Julie. Ignored pleas for help, not medication but rather repair a “botched” surgery. Post op appointments cancelled and/or rescheduled for other personal favor surgeries. His clinical analysis are far from thorough, no compassion as a doctor nor human being. Nothing but dollar signs in their eyes!

Dr. Doerr has been our family surgeon for over 10 years if not for him I would not be able function he has replaced my knee, worked on my ankle and fusion on back. now he has more than just replaced my husbands knee to much to go into. I really do refer anyone needing orthopedic care to him in my book he is the best. as long as I am alive I will be recommending Dr. Doerr to everyone I know he really is the best. Now seeing my dad.

I went in for a check up on my knees. He is very through and friendly and really cares about his patients I like the fact that he wants thing done a certain way for our safety and to keep from getting infections after surgery it shows that he cares about his patients. Dr Doerr also will try to fix your problem first without surgery before doing surgery first I appreciate that about him he is a good listener plus discusses what and how he is going to fix your ailment. I have and will always recom
