*NAME* did an excellent job answering my questions and examining me for my hip problem! It does feel like he has less time than before his group merged with Kadlec and it's harder to get in to see him/other medical providers. Please don't burn him out. Get additional staff to help. *DATE*

They did fine. They couldn't prevent my allergic reaction to antibiotics and sedatives which I had warned them about. No one can. But the anesthesiologist was amazing!

This provider's reputation as the best at what he does is the reason that I went to this provider and this clinic. Therefore, I knew there would be a wait time to get into this clinic and am okay with that. Once in the line of getting the care I knew I would get I am very pleased with the results of the care I am getting. Thank you.

Dr. Staeheli was most responsive and helpful to my questions and long term concerns. I now have a very clear path forward. The only negative thing I experienced was not with Dr. Staeheli but with the Providence system. It seems only natural that I could view all my medical information from my online medical chart. I would like to download the images from my X-rays to my computer but they are not available from my online chart. I was told I have to drive the 15 miles to the medical facility and request a cd with the images. As an [...] year old I try to avoid as much extra "unnecessary" driving as I can. It was a disappointment.

Never saw the Dr. only the PA who in my opinion has a know it all attitude. I am not stupid & didn't like being spoken to in such a manner. I am a business owner of 25 + years. Attitudes don't make good impressions.

Dr. Staeheli is the best orthopedic surgeon. He listened to every concern I had prior to my left hip revision surgery [...]. Every detail was reflected in surgery and post-op care. I have total trust in Dr. Staeheli.

I had to wait for over 30 minutes in the waiting area! My appointment was scheduled for 2:45 PM, I arrived early at 2:30 PM.Then I personally walked up to the front desk to inquire what the status of the doctor was, they apologized & said he was running behind that day - no explanation. The receptionist stated that I would be called back to an exam room soon. They thanked me for alerting them that I had been waiting over 30 minutes.I was called back by a nurse to an exam room about 20 minutes later. She was with me briefly & said the doctor would be with me shortly. It was about 20-30 minutes later when the doctor came in. He ordered x-rays of my right knee & then left the exam room, stating he would be back After the x-rays were completed to speak again with me.& then I waited about 15-20 minutes for a staff member to take me to get x-rays.The x-ray techs were Great! Professional, Compassionate, & Quick!When the doctor came back into my exam room with the X-Ray results I remarked about all of the delays that day. Doctor said that the front desk over-booked him that day & forgot that the doctor's PA was away on vacation, so the doctor was short staffed personally. By the time I was done with my appointment & able to leave the doctor's office is was 5:15 PM or so. My husband & I were there almost 3 hours total.
