"He cares about his patients & doesn't lie or sugar coat above all. I've met a lot of doctors with no bedside manners! He'll make sure you understand & will not leave you before he ask if you have any questions, also. He stays on top of current technologies which is important in these days & times. Dr Setzler has a great personality & that goes very far in today's society. I recently had shoulder surgery & the scars are barely visible. He knows his stuff."

"I was seen by a different dr at first (at AOC), was told MRI looked great, no tears, was released. I knew something wasn’t right because I still hurt so bad. After retrieving a copy of my MRI results (which noted that I had 2 tears and loose fragments) I made an appointment with Dr. Setzler... He immediately scheduled surgery to repair the problem. I am very Thankful for him and his sweet nurse! I had surgery on 9/25/2019, I am sore as expected from the surgery but the original constant aching pain is Gone Thanks to Dr. Setzler!! He is a Great Dr. with Good bedside manners!"

"Dr. Setzler is very thorough and takes time to explain things in a way I can understand. He is also my mother's doctor. She has seen him for years and insisted that I should see him when I needed an orthopedic doctor. I was very pleased. His staff was also very helpful. I was able to complete registration documents online which probably reduced my wait time. I expected to have to wait for weeks to get an appointment but was pleased to get one within a couple of days. Overall positive experience"
