“First time meeting Dr. Federle. Very friendly, never felt rushed. He listened and took an interest in my knee. He also provided encouraging words, as your knee caps look good. Those are encouraging words when you get nervous about seeing a doctor when something hurts, and you don’t know what is wrong. I have already shared his name for someone to use him.”

“I came in for knee pain that I've been struggling with several years due to running. In past years I've trained for and run a couple of marathons - often logging 40-50 miles per week. In the last two years or so - I've reduced this to 10-15 miles per week, slowing down and reducing to every other day to try to keep my knees from hurting. Dr. Federle suggested it was finally time to give up running and switch to an activity that reduced the impact on my joints - swimming, recumbent bike, elliptical, etc. I've retired my treadmill and switched to an elliptical machine at home beginning early April. I'm back to 40 mins per day nearly every day, weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure all dropping. And my knees feel better than they have in years. Thanks for the advice.”

“My experience with Dr. Federle was excellent. I was devastated I had broken my wrist, but with his explanation, while we were looking at my X-rays, I realized he knew what he was talking about. I had asked him many questions, and he did not hesitate to answer any of them. With everything that this world is going through right now, it was such a comfort to find a doctor like him. I thank God for that, and he is the kind of doctor I will be looking for from now on.”
