"My appointment was scheduled for 10 AM. I pre-registered on line so my check-in was very smooth. I was almost immediately called to the examination room. The nurse was very professional and courteous. Dr. Setzler came in and we spoke about what issues I was experiencing. He made recommendations for treatment and asked the nurse to give me something for pain relief. I was in and out of AOC in less that 25 minutes. One of the best experiences ever seeing a doctor."

"On January 20, 2016 Dr. Setzler performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. April 2017 he removed a synovial cyst from my left wrist. He is very good at what he does. He explains everything to you. He takes time to make sure you understand. He is not like other doctors that I have been to that rushes you in and out. I had seen at least 6 orthopedics before I found him. I wouldn’t go to another orthopedic doctor. He is the best!"

"I went to him for "Trigger Finger". He explained the condition, and gave me all the information I needed. Luckily, the treatment was rather simple, and I had full use of my hand in just a couple of days. Highly recommend."
