Dr. Adler is a wonderful surgeon and very caring individual. He checked my knee and answered all the questions I had. I will see him again in 7 weeks.
Dr Adler and the whole support team at OI are the best. Can’t say enough good things about all of them.
Dr Adler and his PA Scott are both very personable and take the time to explain everything clearly. The injection Scott gave was pain free which is important to me so he did a great job!
Everyone at OI is very courteous and friendly! I am very satisfied with how my surgery went and follow up care. Dr Adler and any staff that has helped me are outstanding! I saw a personal trainer yesterday and I was very pleased with that visit. I learned new exercises to do and he was very helpful and explained things very well.
Everything was great.
I have the highest regard for everyone I had contact with! I felt well informed when I left Dr. Adler’s office! He has a great PA, too! I know about my knee, and we have a game plan! Thanks to everyone!
I really appreciated how Dr. Adler listened to my concerns. I felt like he was actually listening to what I was saying. He didn’t seem to be in a hurry to just get on to the next patient. Very pleased with my visit!
My experience with Orthopedic Institute was a very good experience.

Outstanding service and even though it was a busy morning the staff did not indicate that they were overwhelmed at all. They are a true well oiled machine.
Received an email for the patient portal but not the temp password as stated in the email. Will call today to access the portal.
The hassle of recordings when calling, irritating and ridiculous. Personal and services very nice.
Dr. Adler appears to be very knowledgeable and did an excellent job on my hip. I would recommend him very highly for hip or knee replacement to others. He has a great personality!
I was referred to Dr. Adler by friends. He knew immediately what my problem was. I was very satisfied with the results of my surgery. Dr. Adler is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone. I love his personality and how he treated me. Very positive experience. Just a good guy…very attentive and concerned. Would recommend to anyone.
Dr. Adler’s staff at the Orthopedic Institute are all very pleasant, helpful and professional. Always greeted with a smile. I have never had to wait for one of my appointments. Dr. Adler will come in with a big smile and a friendly hand shake. He listens to your concerns and addresses them. Dr. Adler has down both of my total hip replacements and my right hand knee replacement. He will be doing me left knee when it comes time to do that. Very professional and has a great surgical team assisting him at the Orthopedic Hospital in Sioux Falls S.D.
Dr. Adler was highly recommended to me by trusted friends. He is a very professional and knowledgeable doctor with a positive, confident, and upbeat personality. The care I received at the SFSH during my hip replacement stay was the best I have ever experienced!
Excellent care from Dr. Adler and his staff and SFSH. Everyone was concerned about me and my knee and how I was doing. 5 days from surgery and, so far, I’m pleased. Dr. Adler is highly skilled, great personality and interested in the patient. Doesn’t get better than that.
