Ratings for Dr. Doug Kayler
I wish to thank Dr. Kayler and his staff and the staff at Grace Hospital for a very successful knee replacement procedure and follow through. This procedure was not without its unpleasant aspects, but by listening to and following ALL instructions and physio recommendation, six weeks after the procedure and I am feeling and doing far better than I was pre surgery. I can now do things I was unable to do prior to the knee replacement and the knee is getting better daily. Thank you Dr. Kayler.
Sad to see any negative comments about Dr. Kayler. I would question how much effort they applied to assist their recuperation. (lots of physio and a positive attitude work really help). I had two total knee replacements (within 5 months of each other) and can honestly say I now have my life back. Found his office staff to be very efficient, professional as well as quite accommodating. I am only sorry I did not do this years earlier. It is now 6 months since my last surgery and I am back to doing everything I used to do (better than before and pain and drug-free). Thank you Dr. Kayler, sincerely appreciated.
Had an ACL reconstruction done in 1996. Had to go back within a few weeks to 'clean up' my knee (I was in the hospital for 5 days post surgery, all sorts of scar tissue built up while I laid there). Had nothing but issues for 20 years. The graft placement was poor, had my lower leg hanging at a funny angle. Re-tore the ACL 20 years later (expected) and my knee was finally sitting correctly after the tear. Had it redone correctly and is solid. Would never use this surgeon again.
This guy doesn't know what he's doing. He casted my wrist wrong and it never healed properly and hurts 5 years later. My friend broke her foot and had Kayler also and said he messed her up permanently. Total goof. The medical system needs to stop letting people without common sense become doctors.
So on June 19 2016. I broke my ankle in 2 places. Plus dislocated it, the bone was sticking out about 6-8 inches. I don't remember much about that day he did surgery. But he did he told me things I didn't even know I said, he is very kind. Very respectful on how he talks to you. Explains everything that is going to happen and how your recovery is going to be and the process it's going to be. I fully recommend him. Thanks doc! Debi Sousa
In my case Dr. Kayler's surgical skills were fantastic. The only problem was I had a work related joint injury and his office sent another persons x-rays to Workman's Compensation. To make matters worse he didn't send me in for x-ray. When I finally did have an x-ray done the damage was obvious. However. I was nearly bankrupted. Workman's compensation sat on my file and starved us to death for nearly a year without telling me why, which decimated my credit rating . I was subjected to investigation - and the investigator for WCB actually ran over our dog on the highway when it ran after their car which was initially parked in front of our home. Through all of the horror. And I do still have an occasional nightmare of watching our dog run over and memories of debt collectors harassing us, I should have sued the bstrd.
Round 1 was 13 years ago with a right rotator cuff injury, due to childhood baseball that came up when I started Class 1 Flat-deck work. The surgery went well, recovery went smooth and back to work I went, without the Flat-bed, moved to dry-van. Round 2 started about 20 months ago, I woke up 1 morning and my left shoulder was "on fire", right hand shifts, left hand/arm rotates steering wheel, and 11 years of that somehow did lots of damage inside. Waited, had the surgery done. Anyways, 1.5 months after physio starts, I fell right on the end of my right shoulder damaging it badly, just had the surgery last Friday. There is a reason there are over 400 people waiting for his work, if it's shoulder related, Dr. Kayler is the best around, period, he uses that little 3mm scope perfectly like it's another 1 of his fingers. I highly recommend him for shoulder work of any kind you might need. He is 3 for 3 with me, I'd give him a 9.5 out of 10. Thank you Dr. Kayler.
