5on Vitals,Oct 11, 2018


Always very informative and pleasant, friendly, and personable

5on BirdEye,Oct 11, 2018


Very great experience. Staff at check in was great and really nice and helpful. X-ray tech was great. Jordan and Dr Eifler were very knowledgeable and wanted to get me back to normal ASAP. I go back for a follow up in a few days. Feel like I made a good choice with picking this office.

Everything when fast and smooth. Happy to see again all the staffs and Specialty doctor almost about 2 y. I do trust dr. Eiflers work or opinions about my injury and that’s is why I will keep seeing him if I need too.

5on BirdEye,Oct 10, 2018


As always the service was great. Dt. Eifler took time to discuss and explain. Jordan gives an almost painless shot in the knee.

Once again Dr. Eifler proved his value to me . My last visit showed care, professionalism, and a thorough evaluation of my needs . There isn’t a better Doc in the Valley! He’s never too busy to provide personal attention & he never fails to make me feel “singular” in his busy practice.

Dr Eifler and team are outstanding! He fixed my shoulder last year and recently repaired my knee. Dr E is no nonsense, goes way above and beyond to help, is highly skilled and genuinely cares. I will not go anywhere else and am truly fortunate to have found such an amazing team.

The Dr was very personable, and took the time to explain the situation. The office is nice and welcoming, and I did not feel rushed, as if he was tryong to pack in as many patients as he could on a day.

I arrived a bit early and was taken back right away to be seen. I appreciated the promptness. I also appreciated the information provided on where I should be in my healing and suggestion to help it along.

5on BirdEye,Oct 04, 2018


Personable dr, took the time to explain and give suggestions.

Awesome experience,I was well informed before my knee scope and also after. Received a phone call From Dr.Eifler the night of my scope and also a call from his office the next day. Communication means everything,when getting a surgery,even when it’s a scope.

5on BirdEye,Oct 03, 2018


Excellent experience as always. Professionalism and service goes above and beyond!

5on Google,Oct 03, 2018


Such a great office. Super efficient and polite, finally relief from knee-pain. Would give 10 stars if I could!

5on BirdEye,Oct 02, 2018


From the moment I walked in until the moment I left everyone was amazing. I have a lot of health issues and have been through a lot of surgeries and procedures over the years. This was the best care I have received from beginning to end. Everyone was super friendly, informative, and made me feel that they genuinely cared. I would recommend them to anyone. I just want to say thank you to everyone.

5on BirdEye,Sep 28, 2018

5on Google,Sep 27, 2018


Wonderful office staff! Prompt replies to phone or web contact and Dr. Eifler is a straight to the point, no nonsense kind of Dr. which I greatly appreciate as it is becoming a scarcity in today’s managed health care system.

5on ZocDoc,Sep 27, 2018


Staff very friendly . Didn't have to wait long at all

5on BirdEye,Sep 27, 2018


Great to meet such a competant staff...I look forward to the next steps in order to complete my healing...

5on Vitals,Sep 27, 2018


Like a DRS Visit Should Be Dr. Eifler’s office was very efficient. The new patient paperwork was quick and not redundant. X-ray was quickly done in the office and soon afterward Jordan an Dr. Eifler saw me and gave a professional assessment. This was my best Dr visit experience in my life. Very efficient office. Keep up the good work!

5on Google,Sep 26, 2018


Any time surgery is a success it's a good day. They went over the procedure and what was expected. Dr Eifler performed the surgery successfully and after two weeks I went back. He looked at the knee gave me further instructions and answer all my questions. The other thing I liked was he gave you a call later at night to make sure everything was ok. He even called back days later after we had a few concerns. I would definitely recommend Dr Eifler.

5on BirdEye,Sep 25, 2018


Service was fast and medical staff genuinely care for their patients. They call back quickly and Dr. Eifler was accessible too via cell phone. So awesome to be able to talk directly to him.
