Patient Survey Comment

Dr. Voight is a very caring doctor who listens carefully to her patients’ concerns. She explains options for treatment thoroughly and includes the patient in the decision making. She spends time answering all questions. I would refer friends to her for care.

Comment from patient satisfaction survey

Dr. Voight is a fantastic Doctor.  Injuries that I have had with running are always cured.  I was told several years ago by another runner she is excellent.

Emailed note from a patient

First time at Summit Orthopedics for myself and saw Dr. Angela Voight. She was absolutely marvelous and the staff was great. She listened to my complaints and was quick to make a determination as to my treatment plan. I want her to know it was the first night I slept through the whole night without waking up in pain. A big thank you to Dr. Voight and her staff. It was a very good experience.

I cannot say enough about the high level of the care and the extraordinary kindness and concern I felt Dr. Voight displayed during my visit. I left feeling hopeful that there will be a way to heal my injured foot and restore me to an activity level I desire.

Patient Survey Comment

I have a debilitating progressive disease. I’ve seen MANY doctors. Dr. Voight is the only one that has physically and emotionally helped me with all the problems that go along with this disease and I want to stay with her for the rest of my life.

Comment from patient satisfaction survey

I have seen Dr. Voight a number of times. She is amazing. She takes the time to listen to ALL my concerns, she knows my history, and she is very easy to talk to. As an athlete, she knows how hard hearing something like, ‘you can’t run for x amount of time is’ and she delivers the news in a way that makes it seem bearable. You can tell that she cares tremendously for her patients and goes above and beyond what I would expect from a sports doctor. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful sports doctor. She is truly a great provider (and an awesome person!).

All my visits with Dr. Voight and her assistant Aaron have been excellent.  I always feel they really care about me, remember me, are up on my situation and are prepared for my visit.  They are on time, patient and caring.  Not only do I trust Dr. Voight but I’ve already recommended her several times.  She is excellent in every area and I feel very lucky to be in her care.
