I personally know you are an extremely good surgeon. You care about the whole person. That is a great quality in a doctor. Your P.T. department proves that. Peter’s the best. My going from the hospital after my knee replacement to them was the best thing I did. I’d do it again. No regrets! I am so grateful to you and your staff.
God Bless You All,
Feb. 2, 2015
Dear Dr. Greller,
I forgot to say thank you for doing my hand surgery (left hand) as well as my other hand surgery (right hand) 5 years ago. You also made a great decision NOT to operate when I had the double fracture of my humerus several years ago.
You are such a talented and compassionate orthopedic surgeon with a wonderful sense of humor. Thank you so much for the excellent care you’ve given me.
I’m writing to thank you for the wonderful job you did with my recent knee replacement surgery. From my first visit to your office I have always felt comfortable and confident that I was in good hands. I’d also like to compliment you on your excellent office staff. I have rarely seen a docto(s office run in such a friendly and professional manner.
