Best Doctor I have ever had!

I had a tear inside of my hip joint and had to undergo hip surgery. It was a work related injury but the injury was denied by workmans comp. He worked well with me and my Lawyers, and his Assistant Angie who made all of my appointments, got all the insurance stuff taken care of for me and helped with anything else I needed. I recommend Dr. Pifel to everyone I know! I wish he was a family Doctor!

Made my condition worse, will never be the same

Simple procedure was done incorrectly, what would have been a quick fix has turned into a 6 + month or ordeal and pain. I would never see him again. P.S. don't allow his PA to treat you either, he is not knowledgable in the area of RA .

Dr. Pifel was recommended for my daughter's ACL/meniscal injury and have had no regrets after initial misdiagnosis from another provider. Definitely would recommend!

Patient

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr Pifel and his staff. The care I received was above anything I had ever experienced. Just when I was about to give up on finding a surgeon that could fix my hip impingement, I found Dr Pifel. The entire experience was worth our 3 1/2 hour drive. My surgery went great, and so far recovery is better than I could have imagined. I will forever be grateful to Dr Pifel and his staff!!!

Dr. Eric Pifel actually cares about his patients and his passion for his work is clearly obvious. You're not just a patient to him, you're a person. He has always taken the time to answer my questions and listen to my concerns. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and very detail-oriented. I've had 2 surgeries done by him and both were a success! The first surgery I had was to clean up a full-thickness cartilage defect in my knee and to harvest some cartilage cells for a newer type of surgery called autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). The second surgery was the ACI surgery where he injected my cartilage cells that were grown in the lab into the area of my knee where I was missing cartilage. This procedure results in me growing back my very own cartilage and it's more of a permanent fix. Both of my surgeries have gone very smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Eric Pifel to everyone I know and he's the only one I trust with my knee!
