I love him!! He has saved me from myself twice. He’s a straight shooter and won’t sugar coat it for you. I’m lucky to have found him. If you’re a drug seeker go somewhere else. He knows his meds and will find the correct dosage for you. He is absolutely wonderful.

Review for Dr. Nowotny

I enjoyed meeting Dr Trulock. I have never had a physician treat me with more dignity and respect. He listened intently to all of my questions and unlike many physicians he never spoke to me in a condescending manner. He answered all of my questions in a clear and concise manner.

None! I understand why he left Indiana! This doctor should not be able to play the game Operation! Do not trust him. Please do not go to him! I fear the surgery he performed on me has left me debilitated in so areas of my body.

In 2001 Dr. Bridwell performed two operations on me, posterior and anterior fusions. I was sixty three at the time. Subsequently I have been able to live a normal active life and I credit Dr. Bridwell with almost twenty years of active life since the surgery.

Review for Dr. Goldfarb

This man is an utter disgrace. He lied repeatedly and failed to do his job correctly, then blew me off (a minor patient) with a severe wrist injury. He should not be practicing. Do not see him.

Dr. Phillips was the least professional physician I have seen. He was rude, incapable of compassion when he was inflicting pain and seemed to lack any real sense of what it was like to deal with living breathing people. I will never go back to this chamber of horrors.
