I had a total right knee replacement in August of 2022. Dr. Bazler and his staff were excellent and explained everything very well. Took time to answer all my questions. Surgery was done at Muskegon Surgery Center and I was very pleased with the whole process. The first two weeks were a little rough, but I was told it would be. Eight weeks post op and I am pain free and using no cane. Still a little stiff after sitting still, or if I have an active day. Second knee is scheduled for December and I am ready to do it again. Can't wait for a pain free 2023. Thank you Dr. Baszler and staff for taking care of me. — Paul C.

Being a patient with a fear of surgery, I was apprehensive about making the initial appointment. The pain had gotten great enough that I had to make a move — faith, as always, was in full force. Every staff member from the receptionists, schedulers, nurses, and of course, Dr. Baszler was caring, kind, and professional. My anxiety has subsided knowing I’m in the care of people who understand my history and want to see the same future for me. I appreciate that so much. Thank you Orthopedic Associates of Muskegon. — Cheryl C.

Dr. Baszler and his OAM team provided a great experience for my hip replacement. I chose Dr. Baszler after our initial visit because after many surgical procedures for various conditions, I trusted him. He addressed my concerns and patiently answered my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Baszler and his team to address any issues regarding hip replacement. Class act! — Tom R.

My husband had two total knee replacements done in the past year and a half. Both surgeries went extremely well. As a retired home health nurse who followed total knee replacements for years, I would highly recommend Dr. Baszler as a surgeon. He will do my knees in the future. — Rhonda S.
