I strongly believe it is my job to give patients all the information they need to make the best decision for themselves.

Very good experience.

I have been a patient of Dr Vetter for the past 9 months. Every time I have had an appointment, it has been the most pleasant I've ever had. Communication with her, and her team, was top notch. If it weren't for the time off work, and pain, I'd consider tearing my other ACL to continue working with her.
