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.
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.
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!
