Dr. Risinger – Testimonials

Social Climb Review

Dr Risinger is a true professional in manner and deed! My surgery experience was totally without problems!

Google review

Dr Risinger is exactly what you should look for in a doctor/surgeon. He listens to your questions and concerns, takes all the necessary steps to diagnose your issue correctly the first time and unlike many surgeons he doesn't push or jump for surgery as a first step. I have had two separate shoulder surgeries both with Dr Risinger and both surgeries went well. I feel like my expectations were appropriately set in terms of recovery time and never felt uninformed through the process. He was patient with my questions always taking the time to make sure I fully understood and explaining things in a way that was easy to understand. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Risinger, is a standup physician and a standup guy. He exhibits an assiduous work ethic and also an unparalleled wealth of knowledge. He not only makes you feel welcome, but also is not in a hurry to rush you out just to get to the next patient. First class all the way. Paul Wright

Excellant doctor

Google review

I highly recommend Doctor Risinger, I had a very large tear and hole in my rotator cuff. I went to two other doctors and they didn't want to do surgery to repair it, I was in alot of pain they recommended I do six months of physical therapy. I wanted it fixed, Someone referred me to Dr Risinger. He was very confident it could be fixed. I Had surgery March 7th , "He fixed it" and I am having a speedy recovery.

I don't know how to use any of those sites, and if there was a different way to respond, I certainly would because he is one of my favorite doctors!
