Additional information, articles and links about Dr. Setzler


"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."

"The doctor and his staff were so kind to my 82-year old mother who has Alzheimer’s. He was especially careful in how he explained to her that she had broken a bone. We loved him."
