Review

I think Connor is an outstanding doctor. And he has really great bedside manner. And he did a perfect job on my knee surgery this past month. I'm the type of person who seeks multiple opinions. I spoke with two other knee specialists after meeting Connor. In the end I felt Connor was the best choice and I'm very happy with that decision now that it's all said and done. My knee feels GREAT. THANKS AGAIN CONNOR!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!

Review

Dr. Ziegler performed three surgical procedures on my right shoulder and bicep in June of 2020. I had ruptured my upper bicep, tore the lower bicep, and had old injuries to my rotator cuff due to heavy construction work in the past. I couldn't believe that he took care of all three injuries in less than one hour. I had nearly no pain after the surgery, and still am amazed that I have regained all mobility plus more than I had in the past. I am so pleased by his bedside manner, and his professional manner. I would give him the highest recommendation!

Review

I had a major tear in my rotator cuff that got to the point where I could not lift my arm. The repair was major with an excellent turn out. I'm extremely happy with my experience with Dr. Ziegler and his staff. I would highly recommend him if you are considering having any surgical work performed.

Review

I had a meniscus that was repaired by Dr. Ziegler and it was a great experience. It was my first surgery and I was of course worried about recovering and returning to my previous level of activity. I am just over 4 months out now and everything feels great and I am almost back to as if nothing ever happened. Dr. Ziegler was very present and showed that he had an interest in not only fixing the problem but making sure all my questions and concerns were answered. He made it clear that he was available should I need anything or have further questions. Every question I had from pre-surgery, post-surgery, and all of my follow-ups were answered. I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and the whole experience of dealing with Dr. Ziegler. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. Ziegler.

Review

Dr Ziegler did an excellent job in repairing my son's damaged knee. The issue required a significant surgical procedure and a long recovery time. Dr. Ziegler guided us through each phase of the process, explained everything clearly, and provided great encouragement to my son every step of the way. We couldn't be happier with the care he received...this was a big, scary hurdle for a 17 year old to clear, and Dr. Ziegler did his best to make it as manageable as possible. Thank you for everything Connor, great job.

Review

As many parents of a high school athlete know, Junior year is the worst time for an injury to occur. So when this happened to our son we searched for a surgeon that was experienced working with athletes and understood the impact that it can have on an adolescent when sports means everything. Our first meeting with Dr. Ziegler we knew we had the best. He spent time with my son and I and delivered news of a more serious injury, that was based on through assessment and experience. It landed on my son hard and tears came but in the end, after a second opinion my son said, “ I want someone who will be with me through it all even when surgery is over, someone who won’t forget about me when I am in physical therapy and recovering.” Dr Ziegler is one of the best doctors I have ever met and a solid person. He returned all my calls in a timely manner, answered all questions and showed true regard for my son’s heath. From start to finish… even up to the last sports assessment to be cleared for football. My son was captain of the football team and now captain of the basketball team. This would not have been possible without Dr. Ziegler. After an ACL and a meniscus tear, my son is run and leap into the air to catch footballs and shoot three pointers and is fully recovered!

Review

Dr. Ziegler had quite a lot to fix in my “destroyed” shoulder. I spent over 4 months recovering but I can say my arm is strong even without full external rotation. He always smiled and was encouraging when I was pessimistic. And I’m returning to work! Win, Win!

Review

Dr. Ziegler and his staff did an amazing job in repairing my meniscus and guiding me on the road to recovery. I could not speak more highly of how well the process went from start to finish. Thank you again, Pete

Review

I can't thank Dr. Ziegler enough. He and his staff were amazing. I am three months along in my recover and my physical therapist can't believe how well I am progressing. It is amazing to have full use of my shoulder again and not to have that constant pain.

Review

I called Dr. Ziegler after being dissatisfied with my previous ortho professional and found him easily accessible and professional in all aspects. I had been trying different avenues to relieve my knee pain. When it became apparent that surgery was needed Dr. Ziegler explained the procedure and was transparent in all of my visits. My surgery went extremely well and I am pleased with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Ziegler.

Review

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Ziegler. He performed surgery on both of my elbows, one in September of last year and the other one this past January. Both are doing great. The pain I was having is completely gone. He is an amazing doctor, surgeon and his staff is wonderful. He always put me at ease and I would highly recommend him.

Review

Dr. Ziegler was fantastic Explained thoroughly what he thought was the best surgical approach to resolve my shoulder issues. Half way through therapy now an everything is feeling great.

Review

Quick, easy and thorough exam! After surgery felt like a whole new person!!! Couldn't ask for better care.

Review

Dr. Ziegler performed ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair surgery on my son in June 2019. In a word Dr. Ziegler was fantastic! He thoroughly explained my son's injury to us and what to expect before and after surgery. He was the consummate professional, always courteous, prompt, and willing to take the time to answer all of our questions. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ziegler.

Review

Excellent, warm and very personable. Patients biggest cheerleader. He works tirelessly to find a resolution to your orthopedic needs I had unexpected rotator cuff surgery and he walked me through the highs and lows of my recovery. Unfortunately I had soft bone so he had to deliver the news that my rehab was going to take longer than initially expected but he always threw in a positive twist. My husband and I appreciated his personal interest in my well being and couldn’t recommend a better sports Dr. We also would like to mention his nurse Jose and booking nurse Carla as they too are a very intricate part of the practice. Together a great team.

Review

The best!!! Dr. Ziegler is an outstanding Dr. and person of great character. His personal approach to his patients is so remarkable, always putting the patient first. I have an unusual bursa condition in my knee/leg and he has tirelessly researched and shared with colleagues in support of me. During my visits I had an unfortunate accident and tore my rotator cuff. Through his exam he was able to tell prior to the MRI that it might need surgery. Upon receiving the results I think it was equally as hard for him to deliver the results as it was for me to hear them. He got me right in. Once he was into my shoulder he so the weakness of my bones and had to detain my rehab. He called me personally to check in, which reassured my recovery. I just had my 6 month checkup and all is great
My husband and I highly recommend Dr. Ziegler as an amazing orthopedic surgeon and well as a wonderful person.
Thank you for joining NEOS. They as well as your patience are very fortunate to have you.

Review

Dr. Ziegler is not only an amazing surgeon, he is wonderful person. Each time I have an appointment he greets me and my husband with warmth, compassion and caring interest of my needs. He is such a humanitarian. His first and foremost interest is the care of his patience needs, physically as well as emotionally. I went to Dr. Ziegler with a leg bursa pain and while treating me and researching my best options, I had a rotator cuff tear. In his humble and kind way he presented the news to me and my husband and immediately went into care mode for us. I'm now 6 months out from my cuff surgery and feeling great. He continues to help and research additional techniques for my knee bursa. We recommend Dr. Ziegler with the highest rating for all your orthopedic needs.

Review

Dr. Ziegler is amazing. He recently performed shoulder surgery on me and everything went well. My shoulder is very large, but he was able to get creative to ensure it was fixed correctly. I am ahead in terms of recovery time because of what a good job he did. He also is super nice and explains things well and helped me feel at ease throughout the process. His staff is amazingly friendly as well. I have never written a Google review on anything before, but because Dr. Ziegler far and away exceeded my expectations, I wanted to make sure and spread the word about how great he is. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Dr. Ziegler!

Review

Dr. Ziegler performed ACL construction w/ patellar tendon graft and scoped meniscus in april 2019. As an endurance runner and avid skier, I was apprehensive of recovery and strength. 8 months from surgery and I am feeling great and knee is strong. Long road to recovery but with his guidance and recommendations along with protocol for rehab, i'm way ahead of schedule with recovery. Very pleased with outcome and highly recommend Connor and his team at NEOS!!

Review

In August I showed up at Dr. Ziegler’s office with a torn quad tendon that I’d injured in a fall earlier in the summer. Dr. Ziegler was patient explaining the injury and procedure, both best and worst case scenarios. Four months after a successful surgery and PT, I am walking without crutches or the brace. Through it all Dr. Z was professional, always taking the time to explain and answer questions and his office staff were always helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend this doctor.

Review

my surgery done by Dr. Ziegler was a complete success, he did a GREAT JOB I couldn't be more satisfied, Thank so much

Review

I injured my knee playing High School Football in November of 2018. I had never been injured before and I immediately knew by the pain and swelling that this was serious. I saw Dr. Ziegler a week later and he was able to immediately diagnose my injury, a ruptured PCL in my right knee. That same day he took x-rays and scheduled an MRI to confirm his diagnosis. The MRI clearly showed my PCL was torn in half. Within a week of the MRI Dr. Zieglar made sure to see us again and schedule my surgery. The time period between suffering the injury and then getting scheduled for surgery was no more than two weeks. Dr. Zieglar was fast, efficient, patient, and on task. There was no long waits, lies, or messing around. Dr. Zieglar gets to the point and likes to take action. The surgery was a complete success, and Dr. Zieglar made sure to check with me every week for the next 3 weeks after surgery. The physical Therapy was very well organized as well. Dr.Ziegler has his own protocol for each individual injury. Because of this my physical therapy was all PCL specific and very well run. The process was long and tedious, as Dr.Ziegler is a very attentive person. At times I was frustrated with this because I was a 17 year old just trying to play football again, but I couldn't be more thankful he made me take it slow. I was injured on Thanksgiving of 2018, and was cleared ten months later in September 2019. Dr.Ziegler's work has allowed me to make a full recovery to the point where my knee feels exactly the same as my other, and I am able to play the sport I love with no brace or issues at all. I couldn't be more thankful for Dr. Zieglar and everything he did for me, I highly recommend this Doctor to anyone, especially anyone with a sports related injury.

Review

In September 2019 Dr. Ziegler took out a torn meniscus in my right knee. He was professional and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect. Eight weeks later, my knee is working well. I am able to move the way I want and need to without pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Ziegler.

Review

August 26,2019 I had surgery on my left shoulder. Dr. Ziegler was by far the best surgeon I have had. I had 2 other shoulder surgeries on my right arm, and wish they were completed by him as well. My recover was quick, and I am 100% mobile with NO pain!! I highly recommend Dr.Ziegler

Review

Dr. Ziegler is the consummate professional, kind and compassionate in his approach, and he empowers patients to make informed decisions regarding their care. He took time to explain every aspect of my injury, treatment options and after care. His post-operative protocol was very prescriptive and guided my rehabilitation and ultimately my successful recovery. I owe Dr. Ziegler a huge debt of gratitude for getting me back on both feet and going again! Also his assistant was stellar!

Review

In October 2018, Dr. Ziegler performed surgery on my left tibial plateau. He was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. He informed me on what was being done in my surgery and what I needed to do post surgery. Dr. Ziegler was always available if I had any questions or needed anything. I highly recommend going to him as he has helped me get back to where I wanted to be with my leg.

Review

Our experience with Dr Ziegler from day one has been a great experience. Dr Ziegler performed ACL reconstruction on my youngest daughter in 2018. This year in 2019 Dr Ziegler performed ACL reconstruction and meniscus on my oldest daughter. Both of my girls are active students and athletes. Dr. Ziegler was very professional and was able to explain the expectations from before and after the surgeries. He referred them to physical therapy in which he continues to be informed on the improvement of both girls. I recommend Dr. Ziegler for any surgery, specially sports related injuries. We are very thankful to have him as our family Orthopedic Surgeon.

Review

In November 2018 Dr. Ziegler preformed surgery to repair a ruptured patellar tendon in my left knee. Six months after the surgery I have full range of motion and no knee pain. Dr. Ziegler was very professional at all times and has an excellent bedside manner. Dr. Ziegler referred me to physical therapy and assisted me in all aspects of recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Ziegler for any orthopedic surgery.

Review

Dr. Connor Ziegler performed rotator cuff surgery on my shoulder in December, 2018. He was extremely professional, always courteous and prompt to assist me in my injured state. He was referred to me by a friend, when I complained to her about my shoulder pain. She, also, highly praised his skills. While at Baystate Chestnut Same Day Care, several of the nurses I encountered said he was "well liked" for his professionalism. Thank you Doctor!

Review

My experience with Dr. Ziegler was amazing. He preformed a meniscal repair when other surgeons said the tear was too severe to preform that type of surgery. He was very thorough with his exams and explained everything extremely well. I was never left with any questions throughout the entire process. From the diagnosis to explaining exactly how surgery and recovery would go he happily explained everything and left me feeling confident about my decision. Can't thank him enough.

Review

Dr. Ziegler comes with my highest regards and then some. He performed an arthroscopic labral repair on my shoulder, and the results have been phenomenal. About three months out I have full range of motion and I am pain free. He is a professional, and highly knowledgable, Physician who can relate to his patients and communicate with them at a level they will easily understand. I cannot thank Dr. Ziegler enough for everything he's done for me personally, and I recommend him without any reservations!

Review

I cannot recommend Dr. Ziegler too highly. Prior to surgery he communicated clearly what my injury was, what the surgery would attempt to do, and even what some alternative courses of action and outcomes might be, depending on what he found after directly seeing things inside my knee. The surgery was successful and I am grateful for Dr. Ziegler's ability to repair my meniscus instead of simply removing it, as would have been many surgeons' solution. In this way he has hopefully given me many more years' use of the knee. Things have gone very well and physical therapy nearly has me back to my pre-injury self. Thank you again, Dr. Ziegler!

Review

Dr Ziegler performed my arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Originally I was told by another surgeon I needed a shoulder replacement. I now have full range of motion. I'm very active. He is an excellent surgeon, compassionate, and communicates very well with his patients.

Review

Dr Ziegler had fantastic bedside manner . Upon my arrival, he took the time to explain my tests, my diagnosis and my treatment options. He made something so scary and intimidating seem very simple. He answered all of my questions. I felt confident in my decision to have surgery with him. In the operating room all of the staff were so helpful and kind. Now in recovery and am happy with the results so far! I have no more knee pain! Thanks Dr. Z!
