Review for Dr. Kelly Hendricks, MD

Awesome doctor. Dr. Anderson did not only answer my question on my upcoming hip replacement surgery, he took time and answered my wife’s questions. He did not rush us. Top notch.

Dr. Anderson gave me understandable review of what my surgery would include. Since it's more than just the hip I appreciated the confidence . All of the information and pretesting also showed that I would be in good hands.

Review for Dr. David Anderson, MD

Dr. Manion is one of those doctors that goes the extra mile and really cares about his patients. Anytime I’ve had a procedure done to address my chronic pain he has not only taken time to listen to my concerns but he also makes sure I understand what the procedure involves. Highly recommended!

The office staff and Dr. Hendricks’s assistants were friendly and caring. Dr. Hendrick is very respectful and I felt he truly understood the pain I was experiencing. He came highly recommended and I recommend him for his talent and caring nature toward his patients.

Dr Butterworth performed a DIEP Flap procedure for me 2 years ago, reconstructing both breasts. I just wanted all prospective patients to know pleased I am with the results 2 years later!! Dr Butterworth is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him!

Review for Dr. James Butterworth, MD

Receptionists, Doctor and Medical staff were efficient and pleasant. The Dr. was thorough in asking my medical history and in assessing my problems and treatment. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Aug 03 2019

Review for Dr. Karen Haas, DO

This is an outstanding doctor. He takes time to answer questions. He’s blunt and doesn’t sugarcoat. He has better bedside manner than most neurosurgeons for what that’s worth. I had DBS surgery and I would recommend him to anyone. KU is lucky to have him.

Dr Khan took me through 6 months of treatment for triple negative breast cancer. My prognosis was excellent. He is a very skilled caring doctor. So grateful to have him in charge of all follow up.

Review for Dr. Qamar Khan, MD

Dr. Muehlebach is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable, highly capable, and has the most reassuring persona. Thirty seconds after meeting him I thought, yeah, if I had to pick somebody out of a lineup that I'd trust to stop my heart, fix it, and start it up again, he would be the one.

I was looking for ‘the best of the best’. Dr Clough is exceptionally bright, and able to guide with great wisdom. He is kind and caring, with a sprinkle of humor. I have great confidence in his ability for any procedures I may need. Thank you, Dr. Clough. I found ‘the best of the best’ in you!

I have been a patient of Dr. Killens for 5 years. He is not a pill pusher like my former doctor. Through his guidance I have been able to manage several conditions with ease and great results. I really appreciate that he keeps it real. No sugar coating and to the point.

Great experience. Even though Dr. Aires came in with a group of med students (it's a teaching hospital, and I'm always happy to allow them), he took a lot of time to talk to me, ask me good questions, and was very responsive. Also quite funny. I have already recommended him several times.
