I am writing to express my admiration and gratitude for Dr. Roehrig. Dr. Roehrig is a consummate professional and his soothing bedside manner is both calming and commendable . I had a total knee replacement on June 26, 2012 and I feel amazing, I am writing this letter 12 weeks post surgery. He thoroughly explained the procedure and patiently answered my questions. I am a anxious patient, and he calmed my nerves. I never felt like he was rushing me out of the office, and I was impressed by his ability to connect with me as a patient, and I felt like he really cared about me.
I have never had a surgeon that left that much of an impression on me, and I have never written a letter paying accolades in the past! I have been telling everyone at physical therapy that is going to have a knee replacement, to go to Dr. Roehrig as I feel he is the most capable surgeon I have ever had. As the saying goes,there is proof in the pudding and I am doing well,and more importantly I feel wonderful! There were zero complications after the surgery and I am grateful for that.
Thank you for providing such a fine surgeon.Always,
