The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hoellrich.
“Was always on time or close, attentive, answered questions.”
– Evan J.
“Dr. Hoellrich has been excellent. He is thorough in his exams and willing to answer my many questions and concerns. Recovery from the surgery he did for me has been more comfortable than I expected (due to the same operation on other arms some years before). Unfortunately, the pain I deal with since reaching "recovery" has been at a higher level, but I am confident that is due to the mistake I made. I had to get myself to pt. I chose to go to a physical therapist who was closer to my home rather than one available through the Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. I hope never to need more surgery, but if I do, I will put myself in Dr. Hoellrich's hand without hesitation. I trust him to do the best for me that can be done.”
– Claudia K.
“Dr. Hoellrich is a very professional doctor. Provided the information and allowed me to make the decisions about my care. Dr. Hoellirch is an excellent example of the doctors of yesteryear, caring more about their patients than the bottom line. He expressed genuine concern about my progress and that I have a positive outcome from the procedure. Six months and I have almost full use of my shoulder and my wife says I no longer toss and turn and cuss all night, we both are getting a good nights sleep now. Thank you, Dr. Hoellrich and crew. Job well did.”
– John C.
“I am delighted with the results of my surgery, and the post-op care I received. I received adequate information regarding the operation, both before and after the actual surgery. I find Dr. Hoellrich to be very pleasant and receptive to questions, concerns. I am greeted at the door when I make an office visit, so I never feel lost or like a wanderer. All in all, I have no complaints and would recommend Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to anyone in need of services provided.”
– Donna G.
“He answered all my questions then informed me my shoulder is worse now than 4yrs ago. Glad to be a Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine patient.”
– Robin T.
“Visit was for knee injections. Check-in procedure is very efficient. Staff were all very pleasant and eased my anxiety before the injection. Dr. Hoellrich explained the injection purpose, what to expect and was very gentle.”
– Marilyn M.
“My first time meeting Dr. Hoellrich yielded much satisfaction and less concerns about going under the knife. This year, Dr. Hoellrich decided the reversal for my left shoulder and I'm anxiously waiting his same skillful services on my right shoulder next year. Additionally, arranging Appointments at Slocum is very easily accomplished.”
– Terry M.
“Left shoulder replaced and right shoulder replaced. Dr. Hoellrich is the most effective surgeon I have experienced. Technically superb with a facility to interact with a patient in a way that is informative and reassuring with no suggestion that your questions are trivial.”
– James T.
“I have both knees replaced and am so happy. I am perfectly normal, full range of motion, no pain. Thank you so much”
– Shirley P.
“Dr. Hoellrich was great to talk to and explained everything about the surgery. I felt very confident in him repairing my shoulder. The whole process went exactly as explained. Thank you so much and my shoulder feels and works great.”
– Ross S.
“Very compassionate, professional, and takes the time to answer all questions you have. He never rushes you through your appointment like a cattle drive. He has done two surgeries on me and I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
– Doris P.
“Excellent care, excellent experienced Dr. , and he and his staff care about the care they provide.”
– Nicklis S.
“His work is excellent and he is very clear on what is happening and what to expect. My recovery was better and faster because I knew what to do to help myself.”
– Arminda P.
“I had a total replacement of my left shoulder joint in January. My joint had deteriorated and become arthritic as a result of a previous surgery approximately 40 years ago. Common everyday activities were becoming difficult, not to mention some growing challenges with my golf swing. Pain was not continuous but it was bad and I spent most evenings with an ice bag on my shoulder. My surgery and recovery have gone wonderfully so far. I am back playing golf with minimal loss to my range of motion or distance. I am a satisfied customer at this time. I would add one word of caution to anyone considering this surgery. If you desire to achieve a good outcome, be prepared to commit yourself fully and completely to your recovery and rehabilitation. I spent numerous hours each day for many months after surgery to my prescribed stretching and therapy. I am now working diligently on my various strengthening exercises. It has been and continues to be a lot of work. But my goal was to be able to return to an active lifestyle. So the recovery work was always my expectation. And the results are looking good so far.”
– Stephen D.
“Great as usual - all my questions were answered and he was very good/gentle doing the injection as always. His assistamts were very friendly and professional.”
– Carol V.
“Excellent, very competent & professional.”
– Harold B.
“Had right shoulder replaced. Excellent result, Dr. Hoellrich and staff were outstanding. I have seen several of the Drs and had several joint replacements over the years. Slocum is by far the best for orthopedic issues.”
– Nicklis S.
“Professional, efficient, communicated procedure and expectations.”
– Robert R.
“I had excellent service and interaction with my Dr and all of the staff. I had both knees replaced in Florence with Dr. Hansen. I felt that I got better communication and expectations from his staff.”
– Debra L.
“Dr. Hoellrich is a superior surgeon. I refer him and Slocum on a regular basis.”
– Tracy L.
“Our 17-year-old-son had an ACL surgery with Dr. Hoellrich. It was a success. I have heard of some many unsuccessful stories since then. Six months after the surgery, our son was playing soccer again. We are very grateful that our son was cared by Dr Hoellrich and Dr. Fitzpatrick (whom we met at ETFC). Our sincere gratitude from Brazil (where we are now).”
