“This is my fourth successful surgery with Dr. Bienz. Dr. Bienz has the best bedside manner and is a top-notch surgeon in my opinion. If there is ever a problem after surgery, he is always available to help. I will never be afraid again because of Dr. Bienz, his staff, and the surgery center staff. Premier Bone & Joint Centers is very lucky to have someone like Dr. Bienz working for them.”

“My entire care from first visit through surgery and follow-up has been excellent. I’ve been treated by other centers and never have I had such excellent orthopedic care. Dr. Bienz took time to explain the diagnostic results and options and to discuss post-surgery results and recommendations. He was thorough in his care. He was professional and caring. This is how all health care should be.”
