    Dr Dockter & his assistant have always provided excellent healthcare. So much so that for 2018 I had no problem going through the second knee replacement. Definitely would recommend to any other patient

    Eric Dockter & entire staff have been amazing. I have been very impressed with Riverton Hospital. Very caring & attentive. Dr. Dockter's assistant took some of my symptoms very seriously post surgery (in which I down played) & possibly saved my life as she contacted Dr. Dockter immediately & scheduled an ultrasound in which several blood clots were found.

    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.
