Dr. Risinger – Testimonials

What impressed me most about Dr. Risinger was the amount of time he gave me. I’ve seen other orthopedic doctors and I always feel rushed. Not only did he provide a full diagnosis of my shoulder he also took additional time to access my arthritic knee.

Dr Risinger is always very informative and listens well. I have had very good outcomes with him. He also has a wonderful staff. Highly recommended.

Dr. Risenger replaced both of my shoulders. He is the only surgeon I would go to. I have 100% function on my left shoulder which was replaced 2/2021. I had my right shoulder replaced 12/2021. The scarring is very faint. Neither of my shoulders were functional before my surgeries but now, I can do things I haven’t been able to do in years!

Dr. Risinger and Rob PA were great! They both took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. I was so uncomfortable when I first went to see them. Had a partial menisectomy and able to walk again without discomfort and a limp

Everyone gets A++ at H.O.S. I highly recommend this group of professionals. I am actually looking forward to my follow-up! PS: My back is much better just from the arthritis meds prescribed .... and I haven't even started my P.T. training yet.

Dr. Risinger was very thorough when discussing my case with me. I never felt rushed or not able to ask questions which is very important when seeing a specialist.

Dr. Risinger and his staff are top notch and have helped me immeasurably. Highly recommended and I consider Dr. Risinger to be a friend.

It was well informative, Give proper understanding to my health situation, and the thought process of the procedures to take place...

The entire staff is amazing. They were on time. The doctor was awesome and answered all of our questions. We did not feel rushed. Thank you!!!
