“Had surgery for a fractured wrist, by Dr Metz. Surgery and PT were so successful, I’m already golfing less than 3 months later. The friendliness and professionalism of Dr Metz and all staff was fantastic. Incredible experience.”
“Dr Metz is an awesome surgeon and my wrist is doing great!”
“Dr. Metz and his team are amazing! I had a horrible experience at another clinic who didn’t treat me for my broken arm. After calling Core, within 2 hours I was in their building meeting with Dr. Metz and being given options for treatment. He was professional yet down-to-earth and I felt I had his full attention. Not having a broken bone before, I had lots of questions but he answered them all and made sure I was comfortable with my choice. The staff member who did my cast was great too, and chatted with me while getting the cast on. Highly recommend Core Orthopedics!”
