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.

Just started seeing him. The nurse was great.

Sometimes you need to wait more than 15 minutes for this provider; however, when you do see him, it is worth the wait. He is always attentive and he is the best in his field as far as I am concerned, and he spends the amount of time necessary for your circumstances.

Doctor expected two very old people to remember dates and address and details of surgery was performed over 40 years ago. He was very disrespectful to both of us by walking into the clerks area while circling around his right ear making us feel as thou were stupid.
90

03/15/2019
The Dr. ordered an x-ray of my right hip to see if that was problem creating severe chronic pain. He explained that it was not and that was coming from long standing low back and related issues. He then explained my limited options for some measure of relief.

From the time I arrived in the office and was checked in by an extremely friendly receptionist, to the excellent care I received by Dr. Staley, who listened to my concerns and examined me.

I don't feel like I had a choice in having the gel injections and therapy. The doctor said that I had to do that first.

09/04/2018
The diagnosis was tight hamstrings, causing my knee pain. I would have appreciated some guidance in how to correct or a short term PT referral, rather than a good bye, nice to meet you.
