“I unfortunately ruptured (snapped) my Achilles tendon while snowboarding this winter. At first I was hoping it wasn’t that bad, but after doing a little web search soon realized it was either a partial or full rupture and needed some medical attention stat. I called Dr. Segler and explained what had happened and explained I thought I had some sort of rupture. I wound up making an appointment. What was cool was that he had me go to a local place to get a MRI before my appointment with him, as he would need the MRI to diagnose the condition properly. Cool because it saved me time and an unnecessary initial appointment & $ as I was confident I had some sort of serious rupture. It turned out it was a full rupture and I was in surgery in two days (quick is crucial for this surgery if possible).
Surgery went well and I am well on my way to getting my mojo back. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about my experience with Dr. S. and think he’s an athlete’s ace. Trying to not make this too long I’ll surmise and just say he is knowledgeable, informative (drawings and all), professional, progressive, a good listener, an excellent surgeon, and he makes house calls! My experience with Dr. Segler has been truly top notch and I highly recommend the good Doc.”
