I had a good experience with Dr. Risinger and my aching knees I received immediate relief and we are developing a long term plan, after an MRI. I recommend Dr. Risinger.

Dr. Risinger put me at ease, answered my questions, and was very gentle with the cortisone shot! I definitely recommend him.

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.

Healthgrades Review

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.

Healthgrades Review

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.

Social Climb Review

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.
