Review for Dr. Aponte

I would highly recommend Dr. R. Hendricks for Orthopedic Surgery. He was wonderful. He saved my father (in his 70's) from having extreme pain in his hip so he could continue a great quality life. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is easy to talk to.

Review for Dr. Zamzow

She is a very popular doctor. My first visit with her, my first feeling actually, was positive and involved. She asked all the right questions. She also explains things through. I, as a 28 year old male with A.D.D. since I was pre teen, I've had many doctors. Misty, is my favorite.

She was a resident when I saw her. Maybe that was why she was not able to help me at the time. I had to see someone else who was able to help me.

Review for Dr. Eliason

We personally didn't click, but she seemed like a good doctor. She had purple hair. Her mind just seemed a little too busy to listen very well.

Review for Dr. Jones

He has been treating my elderly mother for 18 months. He has been kind, attentive and listens to her. It has been so gratifying for her at this late stage in her life to have someone not patronize her. His nurse Kathy has made her feel special. Very big change for my mom.
