06/03/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr Mike Yergler because of three peoples referrals. He was awesome, funny and not quick to do surgery. My first impression is a good one. The other people did say he didn't have a good bedside manner but that does not matter if he is the best Doctor.

16/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Yergler's the best. I had chronic pain to the point that I couldn't even sleep at night along with limited movement to my right arm. Dr. Yergler did a total right shoulder replacement and the pain is now gone, and I'm able to move my arm without a problem. Thank you Dr. Michael Yergler!  Respond

09/11/11 5 3 5 5 I've had two rotator cuff surgeries by Dr Mike with great success. I had no significant pain after either surgery and took no pain drugs. And recovery afterward was excellent. This doctor really knows what he is doing. I find him very willing to answer questions with a great attitude and great sense of humor. I highly recommend him and would go to no one else.

24/03/11 5 4 1 3 Totaly agree with this statement from someone else...bedside manor is nonexistent. He will answer questions only as he is leaving the room. Maybe he's good with shoulders but , not finding true problem with knee!!!!

01/04/10 4 4 4 5 Dr Yergler did an excellent rotator cuff surgery for a massive tear that other doctors thought I would not be able to have full use of arm. Oiiice visits are very quick, so have questons prepared beforehand. Higly recomended.

20/03/10 4 5 5 5 Very knowledgeable doctor and he diagnosed and treated my shoulder issue with success when another orthopedist did not. He does not stay long in your office visit, but that is okay as they charge by the amount of time. He was extremely friendly and did answer all my questons. Highly recommended!!!

17/03/10 5 5 5 5 I think some of you use have Dr. Mike Yergler confused with someone else. I had two rotator cuff tears in each shoulder, and one a huge tear. Dr. Yergler performed rotator cuff surgery on each shoulder about 18 months apart and I never had pain, and have made a full recovery with full range of motion. I found him to be helpful, very compassionate, and caring. I have recommended him to friends and acquaintances with only the highest praise. I am also proud of his recent trip to Haiti; he and the other doctors gave their time and their skills to those so desperate for care. I am proud to call him my doctor and highly recommend him. I only wish I could find a family doctor as talented and personable.  Respond

09/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. M. Yergler is a highly skilled orthopaedic surgeon with a wonderful personality. He performed hip arthroscopy on me and I was up and walking the same day. His extensive knowledge of the procedure mixed with his great sense of humor made me extremely comfortable with him along with his staff. His confidence in what he does is reassuring and refreshing. I have recommended that several of my family members see him for their orthopaedic needs and will continue to do so. We are very fortunate to have such a skilled surgeon in the South Bend area!!

08/03/09 5 4 4 5 Dr. Mike has always treated me very well. I'm no one special, just an ordinary guy, but that didn't seem to make a difference to him. Yes he's busy but that's because he's so good! Did a great job on my shoulder and I've sent several friends and relatives to see him. Highly recommended!

07/03/09 5 5 5 5 How nice to be able to type this on a keyboard without the shoulder pain I was having for months. As usual I probably should have had it looked at sooner but thanks Dr. Yergler for the help. I knew Dr. Yergler was the guy to see. He has done several rotators of friends over this past year who all recommended him. It was reassuring to hear this even though I was planning on going to him anyways. He did a wonderful job repairing my torn ACL several years ago which feels as good as new, even climbing those mountains at 10,000+ feet. Yes, he is very busy, but do the math, why do you think he has so many wanting to see him. Kind of like going to a good restaurant! There is a reason for being busy. He is a hard worker. He also works with our football coaches association (NIC) and gets in our players from local high schools with a phone call. No these are not Notre Dame players or even div 1 players, they are just kids of local parents who are in need of some quick help. Thanks Doc.  Respond

04/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Michael Yergler has been a great comfort to me and my husband since I have had my shoulder operation. He has explained everything and answered all our questions. He makes you feel like you are his only patient at the time of your appointment, yet, he doesn't take all day treating you. I have been treated with kindness and respect from Dr. Mike and his staff. For this I am truly grateful.I personally appreciate the promptness and effecientcy of Dr. Yergler and his staff.

04/03/09 3 3 1 3 Michael Yergler is a skilled physician. His bedside manor is nonexistent. He spends no time with you and will answer questions only as he is leaving the room. If you are a sports figure connected to the local university I assume things are different.

04/03/09 5 5 5 5 Dr M. Yergler has seen all of my family members and I am very impressed with the quality of care that we have received from him and his staff. He is a very caring doctor and takes his time with us and answers any questions we may have. He did an awesome job with my daughter's knee surgery. She was nervous but he put her at ease! I also was at ease knowing she was in good hands! She is back to playing sports at her full potential thanks to Dr. Yergler! He is a wonderful, skillful physician that I would recommend to anyone. He keeps our family active and I greatly appreciate him for that!

04/03/09 3 3 1 3 This is the worst possible individual to see, he has no concern for his patients, he spends no time with you and when he does he isn't listening. He thinks he is better than you and shows a complete level of disrespect for you and how you are feeling. You are lucky if you get a 30 second meeting with him, in out.. very unimpressed with his surgical skills as well. Would never recommend
