Dr. Risinger – Testimonials

Dr. Risinger was very thorough when discussing my case with me. I never felt rushed or not able to ask questions which is very important when seeing a specialist.

Dr. Risinger and his staff are top notch and have helped me immeasurably. Highly recommended and I consider Dr. Risinger to be a friend.

It was well informative, Give proper understanding to my health situation, and the thought process of the procedures to take place...

The entire staff is amazing. They were on time. The doctor was awesome and answered all of our questions. We did not feel rushed. Thank you!!!

The office was very quick to follow up on my doctor's referral. Dr Risinger was helpful and informative.

Dr Risinger is an excellent surgeon. He performed a reverse shoulder replacement on me with no problems to report. All follow up visits have been prompt and he is always courteous and thorough.

Having had two successful shoulder surgeries done by Dr. Risinger, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that he also specialized in arthroscopic knee surgery which I need at this time. In addition to his surgical expertise, I would like to express my gratitude toward his patience and attention toward all my concerns and questions especially regarding this upcoming knee surgery. It means a lot to be heard! I highly recommend Dr. Risinger and Hartford Orthopedic Surgeons!

Had a very good experience and a good outcome!

Seems like a great guy
