Considerate and Capable

This man worked magic on my seriously injured shoulder. One of the best physicians I have had in a long life living in several areas. A rare find anywhere, but frankly, especially in Anchorage.

Five Stars

Dr. Gieringer did my right shoulder seven years ago. His work and staff are excellent in every way. He even provided a video of the my procedure. He did my left shoulder today. I am fully confident that it will turn out as well as last time.He gave me a dvd of this operation also.

My shoudler is like new!

Had arthroscopic surgery on my shoulder. The slingwear was the longest six weeks of my life but I followed doctor's orders and my shoulder feels like new. Dr. Gieringer and his staff were always available and I always saw him for my visits, which I really liked. He answered my questions and was very helpful. I would recommend his office to all my friends and family.

Not Recommended

Dr. Gieringer bedside manner is non-existent. If you are overweight and diabetic, be prepared for a stern lecture on how unhealthy you are - as if you didn't already know it. Prepare to have your feeling hurt.I don't' know anything about his surgical skills, because after being humiliated, I chose another surgeon.

Excellent Care

Dr. Gieringer and his staff did a wonderful job treating both of my shoulders. His surgical skills are awesome and my shoulders have never been better. His staff is great, they treated me like I was their only patient. They know insurance issues inside out. My questions were always answered and I never felt rushed. They are almost always on time and I barely had time to read a magizine article!
