Dr. Souder could have easily told me I needed surgery for my knee, but instead, he told me surgery would do more harm than good. He was very thorough and nice all around. I would highly recommend him.
I had 3 hip surgeries, all with Dr Souder. I even had my family drive me 4 hours for the last one. He has awesome bed side manner. Answered all my questions and showed me all MRI/X-rays/pictures from the surgery. He always kept me informed.
