What People Say About Dr. Todd Shrader, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a knee replacement, it didn't work out the first time so I thought he should fix the mistake, after one year in pain he worked again on my knee and it got worse. I'm in more pain and can not bend my knee. He gave me all my paper work and sent me to another doctor. The other doctor told me he has to start all over and take the implant out. I am stuck with a lot of pain and can't afford a new operation.

My surgery went well, but he was very rude to a nurse in front of me and has a bit of a temper. Very unprofessional.

I had knee replacement with him. He performed the procedure with a minimally invasive approach and saved my muscle. I have excellent flexion and extension. At 3 weeks post op, I was able to walk 1.4 miles. I was slow, but I did it. My scar is barely visible. People are shocked when I point it out. Dr. Shrader has wonderful bedside manner. At every appointment he would explain everything in easy to understand terms, and then he would sit back and invite questions. I never felt rushed.

Dr. Shrader and his staff are very professional, efficient and friendly.Getting on Dr. Shrader's schedule was easy and appointments were scheduled within two weeks. He was in time and did not keep me waiting in the waiting room or medical room. He is a good listener and I never felt like he was rushing me to move on to treating the next patient. He was thorough with his explanations and patient as I asked questions. I have to say that it felt like I was getting care. Highly recommended. Thank u

Technically a good surgeon but falls far short in terms of medical ethics. Prior to surgery I asked if a friend of mine who is a physical therapist, could observe the surgery for educational purposes. Dr. Shrader said no, because the surgery room space was limited, but he later directed me to sign papers authorizing his medical secretary to sit in and observe the surgery! Clearly unethical and manipulative....

Never have had this situation with any other surgeon. Five phone calls made by my husband post op and no response from his office.
