Provider Reviews

I had an anterior left hip replacement Nov 6th, 2019. It went very well. He was very thorough with the whole process. All of his staff are well trained professionals just like him. Cannot say enough positive about every aspect of it. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

He is the most rudest dr I've ever met. Doesn't care about his patients. Just walks out on patient when they are explaining stuff.

I had a severely torn rotator cuff and Dr Meis restored my use of the arm. Had to implant donor material and secure with 9 anchors. After 7 months, I had him repair the other shoulder as well. Now I am able to enjoy motorcycling again!

Takes the time needed to explain the procedure completely. Dr. Meis is extraordinary at making you feel at ease with the procedure he is performing. His kindness, concern, and knowledge are a blessing.

JUst read the review above. Ridiculous! I have been a patient of Dr. Erlandson for years. He is concerned, competent, confident and very helpful. I have stage 4 kidney disease and Dr. Erlandson has been there every step of the the way in the unfortunate circumstances I find myself in!

Review for Dr. Anmol Kharbanda, MD

For The First Time in my Life My Kidneys were damaged from sepsis. Dr. Luqman's honesty about my situation caused me to wake up and take better care of myself. He is a doctor which will tell you what you may not want to hear but is necessary. He is special.

Terrible, non confident doctor that has no passion in actually helping patients. Doesn’t feel concerned. Feels attacked and actually attacks concerned family members. Something is wrong with that. I wouldn’t want him treating me!

Dr. Ryan Meis is one of the best orthopedic doctors anywhere. His professionalism, mannerisms, thoughtfulness, and true care is exceptional. His concern before my knee surgery, during, and after have been above and beyond. I highly recommend Dr. Meis to everyone needing orthopedic care.
