Patient Testimonials

July 21, 2017

Jean N.

Dear Dr. Dieterle,

I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for seeing me on July 6th for severe shoulder pain. You were very respectful and caring as you reviewed my shoulder range of motion. How fortunate I was to be able to see you so quickly. Your expertise was evident and your willingness to try and further educate me on the issue at hand as well as future care was most appreciated. The cortisone shot relieved much of the extremely excruciating pain within 6 hours. It allowed me to use my hand; forearm and some shoulder motion and of course receive some much-needed rest. It provided me with the ability to once again type with this specific note to you. Your entire staff at the urgent care center was very helpful and understood my anxiety from the pain and lack of sleep. Please compliment them for me. Note that what may have been a routine review of a patient was most appreciated.

Your most helpful service was valued and your organization should know of your talent and skill with patients. Thank you again.

Fell off my mountain bike and busted my collar bone into 4 pieces. Although it would have healed on it’s own, there was a chance that it would do so incorrectly. Dr. Dieterle put me back together (anatomically correct!) and I’m pleased. I’ve had colds last longer.

Sharon H.

Sharon, a 68-year-old nurse from Woodbury, had been experiencing shoulder problems for years. “I was in a lot of pain when I first came in to see Dr. Dieterle,” she said. Sharon had lost a significant amount of arm movement due to the pain she was feeling which was making it difficult for her to take care of herself.

“Sharon came into my office seeking relief for her shoulder pain that had been worsening over the course of four years,” said Dr. Dieterle. “She had pain with everyday arm movements and even had difficulty moving her arm out to her side.” After consulting with Dr. Dieterle, it was decided that Sharon would move ahead and have a reverse total shoulder replacement. The surgery and Sharon’s recovery went well.

“After her surgery, I was glad to see that she was back to enjoying her life without having to think about her shoulder and the pain that was once there,” said Dr. Dieterle. Sharon added, “I now have almost complete function of my arm. I’m happy with Dr. Dieterle and St. Croix Orthopaedics and won’t hesitate going back or recommending them to others”.
