If you are over weight. Find a new Doctor. Whatever hurts is your fault because you're fat

Review for Dr. DeWall

Dr Weresh fixed my ACL almost 20 years ago. He was professional but personal. I would highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Evans

I moved and was given Dr Nelson as a referral from a neuro-surgeon, however I was given my (non)diagnosis based on the previous doctor's notes. Said there was no surgery he could do. Guess he only does surgeries and doesn't counsel patients? He never even saw me in person. Who does that!

Review for Dr. Vittetoe

I went to Dr G for a second opinion. Dr mike lee had done such a poor job that Dr G put me in the hospital and operated within a weeks time. After surgery I had a pic line and 3 times a day for 8 weeks I was given CEFAZOLIN 2000MG. If Dr G had not done this I would have lost my foot.

Dr. Sullivan is a caring well educated surgeon. He spent time with my husband and me alleviating all concerns about hip replacement surgery. His staff was amazing.

Dr. Ries performed an anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) for me in December, 2018. I had experienced shooting, stabbing pain and numbness in both legs and feet. After surgery, I was sore from the surgery, but immediately and completely symptom free. Dr. Ries did a great job for me!!!

Review for Dr. Nelson

I went in with wrist pain, and he ordered an X-ray and MRI of my wrist to see what was wrong. Unfortunately, he didn't know what was wrong and essentially guessed that maybe my arm bone was too long... Not useful at all and now I'm down a few hundred bucks for nothing.

Review for Dr. Rodgers

I have total confidence in Dr Vittetoe. He is very thorough and explains things so I can understand them. He doesn’t treat you like a number but a patient and takes time with you. I have referred family & friends to him, who are now his patients. He is just the best compassionate caring Doctor.

Review for Dr. Hatfield

I went in complaining of wrist/elbow pain. He came in to look at the results and perform movement tests. As soon as one test didn't prove carpal tunnel, he said "I don't know what you have, but it's not carpal tunnel. And got up and left. Rude and not informational at all.

Review for Dr. Evans

I had a full hip replacement in November of 2015. Being only 42 I was very young and apprehensive about the surgery. Everything went perfect. Zero pain. I am stronger than ever. He helped me through the whole process and was very good at answering questions.

Review for Dr. Sullivan

He did my fusion. The worst experience of my life. He is back/spine surgeon. Told me know more he can do. Had spine surgery 4 days ago. Doing well. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I have an attorney. He made my life, and families life miserable. It was my DAD'S last Christmas.

Review for Dr. Nelson

Over an hour wait to see him; did not answer my questions - actually avoided answering them. Very frustrated and disappointed in my meetings with Dr. Hatfield. Wait time between appointments was ridiculously long.

Review for Dr. Weresh

Dr has no bedside manner & very rude, abrupt has the superiority attitude. Doesn't talk to the patient instead talks to his assistant & makes his assistant give directions to the patient. Not coming back to this doctor & not recommending him to anyone.

The best thing about Dr. Goetz, for me, was that he took time to discuss my medical history, to explain what he was recommending and why. I haven't always had that, and I appreciated feeling like part of the team. Dr. Goetz's CMA and P.A. are excellent as well.

Dr Nelson did an amazing job! The sciatic nerve pain was I was experiencing was gone. Recovery is ahead of schedule. Only wish I would of had it done a year and half ago when I originally went to Dr Nelson and he said it would get worse.

Dr. Grundberg is literally the perfect doctor; she is well-trained, a gifted surgeon, and a nice person. She spends just the right amount of time with you and even better, she fixes what is causing your problem.

Expect a 45 minute wait AFTER you get into the exam room. Failure to execute any level of customer service and/or professionalism. Per the doctors staff, A 45 minute wait after your appointment time is completely within an acceptable range...Fantastic standards if you have nowhere to be

Dr. Kallemeier is an excellent Doctor. She takes the time to sit and listen to you and doesn't make you feel rushed. She explains everything to you. She goes the extra mile to make sure you are as comfortable as you can be. I would absolutely recommend her!

We waited over 40 minutes past our scheduled appointment, he never once looked me in the eye and instead talked into his recorder the whole time. He spent approximately 5 minutes with my son and told me he could just be carried around. He is 3 and in daycare, not possible.
