Review for Dr. Troicki

I can't say enough about the Doc. Unbelievable experience! Both knees at the same time, 2 days in the hospital and 2 weeks in a nursing home. I went home and was allowed to drive after 15 days. I wish I'd have done it years ago!

Review for Dr. Peebles

I saw Dr. Sheets when he worked at the inpatient unit at St. Agnes in Fond du Lac, WI. I felt that he was condescending and a poor communicator. I'm glad that he has moved on.

Absolutely awful! He made me feel bad about asking for help. He basically told me everything I felt was invalid. Absolutely would not recommend if you actually need help! I can’t believe he still has his license. He is the worst!

Nick Mar 29 2020

Review for Dr. Sheets

She has been my primary Doctor for several years now. She is always on time and respectful and to the point. If she finds a health issue she will direct you to the proper speechlist. In my case prostrate cancer. She is easy to talk to and listens intently to your concerns.

Dr. Berenz has no commitment to her patients. She took a maternity leave, comes back for two weeks and doesn't let her patients know she is leaving. A form letter was sent out. She could have typed the letter herself. When she left she didn't leave a name that could be seen.
