My health insurance changed so my only option was this doctor. Previous to seeing Dr Stecker I had great health insurance and a higher level of care and expertise. My previous orthopedic surgeon advised surgery for a torn meniscus in my knee. I also have a small chipped bone in my knee. I had an MRI CD that had been taken of my knee by the previous doctor so I brought it for reference. Dr Stecker didn't even look at it. Instead he relied on the xrays he had just taken. Dr Stecker then said " I am not sure repairing the torn meniscus will help you, you have arthritis in your knee " Unh? Repairing a torn meniscus won't help? So does that mean I walk around( just barely) with a torn up knee? He then asked " how do you know you haven't had this torn meniscus for years? " Probably because I had no knee pain. I could work out, go up and down the stairs and walk! Obviously he has no idea what he's doing. He should not be masquerading as an orthopedic surgeon. Totally inept. Has no idea how to treat injured knees. Zero trust level. A warning sign was there was no one in his waiting room under the age of 70. If you are an active 50 something stay far away from this guy. Also the blond at the front desk couldn't be more rude.
