I arrived in a great deal of pain and was treated so tenderly. Jordan, the PA, was very thorough in her description of what the procedures would be. I loved that my xrays could be done right there in the office.Dr. Eifler discussed my issues clearly and suggested a range of therapies. I felt included and well informed. I look forward to being treated by this office going forward.

I was referred to Dr. Eifler by a pain doctor. I had been passed around to various doctors trying to get a solid diagnosis. Both Jordan (Dr. Eifler's assistant) and Dr. Eifler were professional and caring. Dr. Eifler knew right awayhow to handle my situation and had a plan for treatment. I was very relieved and thankful. I can't wait for surgery!

Dr. Eifler was very professional and took the time to examine me and explain the medical issue in great detail including a diagram and using a shoulder model. He presented each option with clarity and left the choice completely to mebased on the information given. His Physicians assistant Jordan did a thorough job of asking questions prior to me seeing the doctor and also examined me. My experience at this office was a very good one and I came away with a confidence that I was well cared for.

Honestly, I could have used a more detailed diagnosis and some better therapeutic advice from Dr. Eifler for my badly swollen knee. I realize surgery is Dr. Eifler's main deal, but I'm new to knee injuries and chose him on thebasis of being a joint specialist close to my home who took my insurance. In hindsight, perhaps I should have chosen a sport clinic or more therapeutically-inclined practice.
