I had seen an orthopedic doctor in Martinsville and he ordered an MRI for my ruptured biceps tendon. I insisted on an open MRI. When it was done I requested that the results be sent to Dr. MIERISCHE also since my husband had seen him for his shoulder. Dr. MIERISCHE's nurse called me to schedule for surgery which needed to be done within two weeks of injury. If I had stayed with the Martinsville doctor, my return appointment was beyond the two weeks. Every time I turn on the water faucet, twist off a jar lid, or use my dominant hand, I think of Dr. MIERISCHE and am so grateful to him for the surgery he did for me.
I got bit by a spider in 2008. I treated with multiple specialists from NRV to Wake Forest. Once I found Dr. Mierisch in 2009, and he examined my hand and ordered an MRI. The surgery was scheduled quickly. Thanks to Dr. Mierisch I still have my hand and able to use it. He saved my hand. I will always be very grateful to Dr. Mierisch for his knowledge and skills. He is truly a great addition to S W Virginia. I have referred several people to him and will continue to send referrals.
This doctor is excellent, but his staff has been a pain to deal with at every turn. Whether they deliberately try to misunderstand you or whether they just can't comprehend plain English, I don't know. Every attempt at communication has been met with dumbfounded stares, or glares of superiority and it takes multiple phone calls to get information straight. Keep the doctor! He's great. But he could hire all new staff and it would be a huge improvement.
