Review of Dr. Prusick

- |

Surgery was life changing. At 70 I was worried that I would never feel good again. He performed a lumbar fusion and it is a new world. I feel great-no pain. Very considerate and nice.

Review of Dr. Chuinard

- |

I was very disappointed in my visit today with Dr. CHUINARD in the Kalkaska Clinic. When my doctor referred me to their office it was for a cortisone injection for my tendonitis in my wrist when I called and scheduled the appointment I told them this exact thing tendonitis cortisone injection for my wrist when I got there today the doctor walks in the room the first thing he said to me was " wrists aren't really my specialty". I had tried ibuprofen which made my stomach sick and splinting for almost 3 months his suggestion was a milder form of ibuprofen and some topical gel to maybe calm it down and some physical therapy. His bedside manner was horrible. I will not recommend this office to anyone and I'm seeking treatment elsewhere.

Review of Dr. McGraw


I cannot give Dr McGraw a good recommendation. He did a replacement on both of my knees. The second one did not go well and I discovered how arrogant and disrespectful he is. When the pain kept getting worse after 6 months he refused to take any steps to see why. He said I was just going to “open up a can of worms”. Didn’t think there would be an infection and that it was not that bad. He actually told me to “use a cane”! After seeing him many times and leaving in tears, I had to see a different doctor for a second opinion. I found out the implant had loosened and was moving around causing pain. I guess he’s a good surgeon as long as everything goes well. His bedside manner is awful!

Review of Dr. Galdes


After suffering with hip and back issues for over 8 years Dr. Galdes did a hip replacement using the anterior method. I was up and walking within 4 hours. Within 2 days I was walking, very carefully, up and down stairs unassisted. My recovery time was amazing and I have had no issues at all since the surgery. I highly recommend that anyone with related issues go to him. He partners with Munson Medical Center in TC which also has fantastic services and staff.

Review of Dr. Boyce


Over the weekend I had a ski accident and was referred to Dr. Boyce for orthopedic consult on the injury. From the first calls, to registration, all the way through to meeting Dr. Boyce, and then being fit by Rich for my device; 100% satisfied. Excellent patient care. Dr. Boyce has superior bedside manner, personable, compassionate, competent, and I’m very pleased with my experience. Thank you!

Dr Chuinard has done surgeries on myself and my relatives. He is very thorough, very professional and very compassionate. Will take great care of you. I have seen both sides of his surgeries... having been a patient and a recovery room nurse.. highly recommend him.
