06/04/09 5 5 5 5 I fractured my ankle and was in a lot of pain. I am so glad Dr. Sitler was my surgeon. He showed a lot of patience in explaining everything in detail to me and I felt less frightened about the surgery. I truly feel that I could not have had a better doctor. He is highly professional but also very kind. I was very happy with the result of the surgery although the injury turned out to be worse. I highly recommend Dr. Sitler!!!

04/03/09 5 4 5 5 Reconstructed ACL and trimmed a torn meniscus. Excellent result with minimal scarring. When I had a knee issue about a year later on the same knee, he had me in right away to have a look and make sure everything was still good. Very professional.

29/06/08 4 4 3 4 The doctor and staff were friendly and punctual. I went through surgery for ACL reconstruction. The surgery went smoothly and the doctor did a decent job educating me on what to expect and do after the surgery; however, the follow-up appointments were a major disapointment. This was because he sent a trainee to inspect my progress (one whom I never met before) and this person practically shoved me out the door without physical therapy, follow-up support, or knowledge about why I couldnt straighten my knee to the full 180 degrees plus. Since obtaining the original flexibility and strength of the knee was the purpose of the surgery, at least in my case, I felt shorted.
