    Dr. Dockter is the second IHC orthopedist I saw for my broken foot, I am so glad I switched to him. He is very thorough, caring, he listens and explains, and never acts rushed to leave the room. He also wasn't quick to push me to expensive surgery, which is refreshing! Very happy with Dr. Dockter.

    Dr. Dokter [...] Is the best physician I have ever seen. His bed side manors were above and beyond anything I ever experienced. I wish he was my primary physician as this is someone who I have been looking for but yet been able to find.

    This doctor is the top for me. I was so impressed by his bedside manner & concern. I left my other dr. to change to him.

    Dr. Eric Dockter was willing to let me go as far as I can with Cortisone shots before digging into doing a surgery and I like the fact that he wasn't really gung-ho on surgery right away. He wanted me to do what I can to get by without that first, which tells me he's more concerned about me rather than the money part and also digging into somebody. So, I like the fact that he took the time to pay attention to what my needs were and not just want to do surgery right away. Thank you.

    Our doctor was an excellent provider period. He provided me very useful information about my condition that I did not know otherwise period. Things I thought I know I clearly did not period. He is the provider and he's very skilled and knowledgeable and I very much appreciate it period. I will absolutely recommend doctor to all my family and friends.
