Gregory D. Dietrich MD
Back/Neck (Spine), Hip, Joint Replacement, Knee
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Dietrich.
“Dr. Dietrich was a very nice Dr. and explained everything to me. I appreciated his positive attitude. At that time I was not in any pain to have surgery, which is still the same today. Maybe God will continue to keep me pain free.”
– Sharon B.
“Dr. Dietrich was my daughters doctor for her back, and when i broke my hip, he did a hip replacement. I was up walking the next day. He was very open about what he was going to do, and made me feel very comfortable. I recovered quickly, and have healed very well. He is an amazing surgeon.”
– Shirley A.
“Dr. Gregory Dietrich performed a total right hip replacement surgery on me. He was very informative and reassuring that this procedure would turn out o.k., which it did. Dr. Dietrich performed microdiscectomy back surgery on me many years ago, again with great success. I have not had a bad experience with any providers at Lewiston Orthopaedic.”
– Diane P.
“Very good. Before the surgery Dr. Dietrich came and explained to me what was going to be done and about how long it would take and what to expect after the surgery was done. He made me feel at ease.”
– Betty I.
“Have experienced efficient care and consultation for my medical issues. Am extremely satisfied with overall experience that sustains my continuing daily life. Physician was engaging and informative with my medical conditions and assisted in decisions for ongoing care.”
– Silas W.
“I was very impressed. Doctor Dietrich was very polite and explained every thing that he was going to do.”
– Anna R.
“I have had remarkably great success with the two surgeries Dr. Dietrich has performed. His skill level is such that I have greatly exceeded the outcome expected with my two TJR & have amazed my friends, acquaintances & other medical providers with my swift recovery. Dr. Dietrich is very personable & I enjoyed being able to talk with him during my visits. My wife has worked with various medical professionals for 3 decades & has a vast amount of knowledge regarding individual doctors & procedures & she regards Dr. Dietrich as a genius in his field. I must agree given my wonderfully swift & problem free recovery from both surgeries. I am doing much better than friends that have the same surgery more than a year ago. I was back to work 3 weeks after my surgery. We both wish I could have found him much sooner. I could not be more satisfied with the results of my surgeries. I have my life back after a decade of excruciating pain leading to a wheelchair bound life. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!”

“I have seen several providers at Lewiston Orthopedic and have had positive experiences with all of them I have seen.”
– Ted S.
– Peggy B.
“My appointment was very smooth and timely. Referral information was on hand. New patient information was straight forward. Dr. Dietrich was no-nonsense, down-to-earth, and spoke to us on our level (I am a veterinary surgeon, and my son is a 4th-year med student). His examination was thorough, and he explained things very well, inadequate depth. He instilled trust in a very short period. I left feeling that my time was well spent and I was comfortable with his recommendations.”
– William D.
“Dr. Dietrich has an easy outgoing personality that put me at ease before having major back surgery. In the past, I have known him to be an outstanding surgeon. My last procedure added to my admiration for his skills and attention to details that might affect the healing process. To Dr. Dietrich may I say, "Well Done."”
– Willam G.
“Dr. Dietrich spoke with us as though he had no other patients, clearly, in plain language, loudly enough remembering my husband doesn't hear well. He had my husband's medical info, meds list, and x-rays for reference and though he didn't rush through the appt, he moved the appt along.”
– Liz C.
“Dr. Dietrich was great. I am waiting for a follow-up visit that has not been scheduled yet.”
– Gary K.

“All in all my experience with everyone one was a "5." Will use you all again.”
– Tana A.
“Dr. is a gentleman and a wise physician who kindly explained to me and my nurse companion what would not help my back, ie.surgery, and what would be a help - continued medication patch for about 2 weeks and a back brace. Though slow in coming I do have decreased back pain and have taken to wearing the brace off and on and for the past three days not at all with only minimal discomfort. Thank you, Dr. D. and your really good staff from the Front desk to the nurse.”
– Mary G.
“It has been a very pleasing experience. I was well cared for from beginning until now. I can't say how things will be with future appointments, but I have no reason to believe it, or they will be any different. He cut me open, screwed me together and closed it up, and it looks very well according to my wife because I can't twist my head around enough to look at it myself. I will just have to take her word for it.”
– Joseph N.
