Dr. Metz is an amazing Orthopedic surgeon. He also is incredibly patient and really educated me in my neck issues. He did a 2 year follow up on my triple scoliosis surgery. He and I are pleased with the healing results.

Dr. Metz is the BEST! He came very highly recommended and exceeded the recommendations! He was very warm friendly and down to earth and put my mind at ease about my back condition. He explained everything very clearly in a way I could understand and referred frequently to the x-rays pointing things out to me.

In a prior appointment we had detailed everything our quite well. Even after having had this appointment I cannot tell you what the desired outcome or purpose of this meeting was other than to have me sign a document that I had no time to read. This did not meet the high quality I had experienced in all prior visits.
