Transparency and professionalism.


Dr. Schildhorn was very friendly. His examination of my left knee was thorough and he took time to explain his findings and the possible diagnostics in great detail. He then discussed further examination and treatment options and referred me to a MRI provider that accepts my insurance. The transparency and professionalism from the moment when I stepped into the office until I stepped out was outstanding.

Dr. Schildhorn is nothing short of AMAZING.


Excellent orthopedic surgeon, professional and friendly. Initially, I went to see Dr. Schildhorn for a second opinion, as the first surgeon didn’t seem to have much to say other than I needed surgery. Dr. Schildhorn not only thoroughly explained the necessary procedure for the issue, but he suggested reviewing the MRI disk report for a complete analysis. It’s been 1 week since being out of surgery and I am already feeling great. He set me up with the next steps on the road to recovery. He’s very patient, genuine and honest! Thank you!

Great doctor, very knowledgeable.


Went in for what I thought was a shoulder sprain, he figured out with was a neck sprain. Showed me the bone model of what was going on. Offered two treatment options: Injection if it was really painful (which it wasn’t) or to let it heal with physical therapy. Gave me a script for physical therapy. I opted out of the injection, but appreciated him giving me the option in case I was in severe pain. Overall great experience.

Excellent Orthopedic Surgeon!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!


Visiting Dr. Schildhorn was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had visiting a healthcare doctor! His diagnosis and recommendations were clear and he answered all questions I had in detail. Dr. Schildhorn repaired my knee. He had the time to professionally explain to me everything connected with my procedure before and after surgery. His office staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Tamika. I highly recommend Dr. Schildhorn for any orthopedic procedures.

Short wait, very nice office and great doctor.


Dr. Schildhorn was very friendly and took the time to listen to all of my concerns and explained everything very clearly rather than rushing through things. Also unlike some surgeons I’ve seen in the past who right away want to operate, he suggested a conservative approach with surgery as a last resort.

Excellent orthopedic surgeon. Professional and friendly.


Dr. Schildhorn operated on my 21 year old sonn, who broke all 26 bones in his foot, including a double fracture in his ankle. Dr. Schildhorn had him walking out of surgery with crutches, and within a few weeks he was able to put weight on it. He is now almost fully recovered, walking without assistance in a very short time.
