Dr. Hyer did my ankle-fusion surgery. Even though I will always have a slight limp due to the fusion I am so glad I had this surgery. Dr. Hyer and his staff has always been very kind, respectful, knowledgeable and class acts all the way. I was always confident that he would get my problem taken...more
