“I am very happy with Dr. Plyler. He did my knee surgery and was excellent. He is always thorough and takes the time to be sure you understand everything. He answers every question. He makes sure you are confident and a part of your recovery. He is willing to adjust things based on your particular situation. I would recommend him to others.”

“Dr. Plyler is fantastic. I had not healed well from a previous surgery and Dr. Plyler recognized immediately the pain I was in and ordered an MRI and surgery ASAP. The results are wonderful. I only three months out from a total knee replacement and doing great. A little swelling but back to all my previous activities. Dr. Plyler is a wonderful doctor and has a great personality. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an ortho guy.”

“Dr. Ryan Plyler is an incredible doctor, an excellent surgeon, and a very kind, caring, and understanding person. The nurses and staff at the Toms River and Tinton Falls offices are all wonderful! My teenage son has had ACL reconstructive surgeries on both of his knees performed by Dr. Plyler (both within a year of each injury). Surgeries can be scary, and recoveries are long, but we were so fortunate to have the expertise and compassion of Dr. Plyler! His knowledge and care are outstanding, and he made us feel at ease, assured, and confident during successful surgeries and recoveries! He really understood the needs of his patients and was super supportive, encouraging, and motivating every step of the way! He referred us to an excellent physical therapist that would best address my son’s rehabilitation needs. With hard work and dedication by all involved, my son’s recoveries have been super successful! He is strong and now very happily back on the playing field! We are thankful to Dr. Plyler and the Professional Orthopaedic Associates’ staff for our tremendous experiences. We have the utmost respect and admiration for them.”

“I had met with Dr. Plyler last year to discuss knee replacement. At that time, he explained the robotic surgery process. After having to postpone surgery for a year due to COVID, I finally was able to have the surgery, I went home the next morning, and I could walk without a cane or walker. The visiting nurse and physical therapist were amazed at my progress. The process was as pleasant as possible, and the result has been a chance to live pain-free and resume taking long walks daily and playing pickleball again soon. Dr. Plyler's professionalism, confidence, and reassurance about the outcome were paramount in relieving my concerns. Thank you, Dr. Plyler, for my successful surgery.”

“Dr. Plyler just started when I needed an evaluation for right shoulder pain. My previous doctor did not take my insurance anymore. I didn't want to switch doctors but had no choice. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. Dr. Plyler was an answer to my prayers. I had to delay my surgery twice due to the pandemic - but he was so willing to help. He is extremely knowledgeable. A fantastic surgeon. He looks you right in the eye when speaking, and sits and listens, no matter how long you chat on and on. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and even called me at home to explain(once again) my questions and concerns about surgery. He did everything he said he would. He is down-to-earth and so easy to talk to. I already recommended him to co-workers and family. I am extremely satisfied with the care of Dr. Ryan Plyler and his staff. I would definitely seek care with him and his staff again. Thank you.”

“Dr. Plyler had been great explaining I don't need surgery. However, I was happy to hear that I'll be back to Dr. Plyler if I ever do.”

“My experience with Dr. Plyler was very good.”
– Maria Z.
“My experience can be summed up as very professional and caring. Even after my initial problem was attended to, I, unfortunately, fell off a ladder and broke several ribs. Because of the COVID epidemic, I was reluctant to go to the hospital. I contacted Dr. Plyler and after all necessary precautions, he treated me and brought me back to full health.”
– Thomas S.
“Dr. Plyler spends a lot of time presenting all my care options, not pushing one or the other, and supporting the choice I made for my condition. He is very personable and knowledgeable.”
– Phyllis F.
“Dr. Plyler was very responsive to my condition and recommended physical therapy before considering surgery. Although an appointment had to be converted to a conference video call due to the virus, his concern and advisements were evident during the session. I would also like to mention Dr. Bade who first saw me before Dr. Plyler and was very responsive as well. Excellent reviews for the physicians, technicians, and office staff at Professional Orthopaedic Associates.”
– Joseph A.
“Dr. Plyler was the absolute best. He explained everything in detail both before and after my surgery. He even helped me push through insurance red tape to get my MRI scheduled. My shoulder is in great shape, I have almost total range of motion and it’s only been four months since the surgery. I can not recommend Dr. Plyler enough.”
– Carol H.
“Professional Orthopaedics has treated my athletic children for years and is why I came to Pro Ortho for my injury. Although new to the practice, I had every confidence that this group would only recruit the best and is why I had no problem seeing the newest addition to the team. Dr. Plyler went above and beyond his clinical expertise and talent, he listened to what was important to me and my lifestyle and we together made the decision on how to proceed based on the evidence. Turns out it was the best decision for me. Fours days after surgery, I am walking pain-free and amazed at my recovery thus far. He told me he had every confidence this is what I could expect prior to the procedure, however, I kept my expectations lower, based on prior surgery experience. Well, I am here to tell you that not only was Dr. Plyler a great hire, but he is also a man of his word! Thank you Dr. Plyler for your awesome talent and care throughout this process. I am now expecting to play golf with my kids for the first time in over a year within the next few weeks. Thank you Pro Ortho for hiring a great teammate and a talented and caring doctor on your staff. I have been praising the practice for years and am happy to report, my conviction in Pro Ortho continues to hold true! Best of luck to you Dr, Plyler, and thanks for making this patient feel important and confident to return to the activity I hope to participate for years with my kids.”
