I found Dr Byrkit to be very professional and knowledgeable regarding information that I needed. My appointment with her was my first. I felt confident and well looked after with her thorough questioning of my history and recommendations. Excellent physician. Gretchen Mobley

Dr Allan did the surgery to correct the second knee replacement that another surgeon had done that became infected and had to be removed on October 9th and Dr Allan put my third one in the following July and it has been a great success.

Dr. Allan is an excellent surgeon. I wasn't sure about him at first because of his attitude but after a while I got to where I really liked and trusted him. He definitely knows what he is doing!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that asked about an orthopedic surgeon.

His job isn’t to counsel me; it is to make sure I am on the most effective medication and treatment for mental/emotional health. That, he does effectively and professionally. I’ve never had to wait longer than 15-20 minutes and do not feel rushed when my husband and I are with him.

Jim in Mt Zion, IL - Jul 09 2019

Review for Dr. Singh

He is a very good surgeon. You have to ask questions to learn anything because he is not very forthcoming on information. Doesn't bother me. I'd rather have a great surgeon than a mediocre one that talks more. He has done my knees and one hip and will soon do the other hip.

Jul 06 2019

Review for Dr. Allan

After 15 years of suffering with hip issues, Dr. Allan was able to diagnose me with my issues and has been moving forward with helping out my pain. He's a life saver.
