Patient Comments (3)
Auburn, ME |
This man is incompetent. I had severe arthritis in my knee and could barely walk, he performed arthroscopy which made absolutely no difference. Later, when I asked about Synvisc injections, he said that was only for arthritis. He forgot I had it. When I asked about a knee replacement, he said "you don't take something beautiful and replace it with something artificial." And a replacement is not done for pain. I have heard from several PT's that he is incompetent. He wasted a year of my life.

I went to Dr. Piers through a referral from my PCP a few years ago and he was terrible! My finger had started to heal and he tried to re-break it on the side of his table. He couldn't do it, thank goodness, and sent me to another Dr. that said he wouldn't be doing me any favors to try and re-break it and if he did it would be surgery, not the side of a table. I would never recommend this doctor.

I started seeing Dr. Piers before he joined Maine Ortho. The experience was completely different, infinitely better. The administration and beaurocracy at Maine Ortho is the worst! I am looking into another provider because of this.
