Very friendly and clearly explained my issues. I wasn't aware I was to wait after receiving my shot since the door was left open, so I assumed the appointment was completed.

Our family has needed an orthopedic surgeon times now. We continue to come back to Dr. Metzger because he is genuine and knows how to work with people if all ages. He worked with our ... year old, our ... year old and now he is working with me as a patient instead of a parent. He has always been so informative with my husband and I, we trust his opinion, and he has been very reassuring towards me as a parent with anxiety and now as a patient with anxiety. I appreciate his patience with me as I am highly anxious especially as the patient. He has been very understanding and non judgmental. Thank you Dr. Metzger.

De. Metzger took a great deal of time with me. Genuinely cared about me and my problem. concerned about getting a correct diagnosis and plan of care. He was one of the 4 BEST doctors I have encountered at Elmhurst Hospital. He is a keeper. I have already recommended him to others.
