Patient Testimonials

Angela G.

I have been a patient of Dr. Diekmann for almost 20 years. Every time I see him, even if it’s been two or three years since my previous visit, he always acts like I’m his only patient. He always makes me feel comfortable, listens to my issues, and involves me in my care plan.

Dr. Paul Diekmann, based upon my experiences, is an excellent surgeon with an exemplary bedside manner. He has a very calming, reassuring demeanor that instills confidence in the patient. He explained every step of the surgical procedure and addressed any of my concerns. He is a very kind and warm individual and demonstrates a high degree of expertise in his field. I would highly recommend him to family and friends without reservation.

I have seen Dr. Diekmann for over 10 years. He is a very good doctor and I recommend him to many. He has given me cortisone shots for my bad knees and now it is time to get a knee replacement. I have no worries because he did my mom’s hip surgery and you could barely tell where the scar was. His personality is A+ and he really does great with informing you what is going on and takes his time doing it too. I highly recommend him.

My son, daughter, and I have been seeing Dr. Diekmann for 15 years.  He is the most understanding and patient Doc any of us have seen.  I have been coaching youth, HS and college for almost 30 years and in the last decade, Dr. Diekmann is the only orthopedist that I have referred my players to.  Recently my daughter (at college) was told I had an appointment with Dr. Diekmann the next morning and her response was “lucky!”  She didn’t ask why I had to go, but jealous that I was going. I would say that’s a pretty great testimonial in itself.

What I liked most about Dr. Diekmann was his concern for me and his very pleasant manner.
It’s not easy to hear that one has a serious problem when one is expecting that the torn meniscus is the problem, which it is not, but rather osteoarthritis in the joint of the knee.

Thank you for your help and empathy.

I have received exceptional care from Dr. Diekmann, as well as his staff, especially Troy! I can not say enough about how he made me feel at ease before me ankle surgery as well as during the recuperation period. He is very thorough and caring! My son and my husband have been patients as well! Thank you for the outstanding care!

Dr. Diekmann has replaced both my knees and done some repair to my shoulder and did my dad’s knee as well. I love him for a doctor and now I am going to him for some wrist and thumb pain. He is a very good doctor and I trust him totally. He also has a good bedside manner and that is rare in specialists.

Dr. Diekmann is the only choice for me and my family when it comes to needing help with bone & muscle problems. He has served us very well for well over 20 years. I could go on with many details but just want people to know that this is a Dr. that will care for you very well.
