I visited Dr Ivy on the recommendation of a friend. I found him to be very friendly, informative, and caring. He performed LRTI surgery on my left hand and the timeline for recovery was everything he'd told me it would be. I'm am very happy with care and treatment I received from Dr. Ivy. I am also sending my husband to see him for an elbow issue.

I had shoulder pain for several months that wouldn't go away and a finger that had shooting pain. Dr. Ivey was very caring and professional. He ordered more invasive testing that discovered a tumor was causing the pain. Thank God for the early detection!

Outstanding physician and surgeon. He did bilateral carpal tunnel releases and Depuytren's contractures releases in office on each hand and the results were amazing. His Depuytren's method is unique. Fast, practically pain free, and quick recovery. 20 minutes in the office and I drove home. Extremely confident, quick, and highly attentive to the patient's comfort. Can't recommend highly enough.

I assume Dr. Ivy, only listens to certain patients. He is very condescending, my issues and concerns were not taken seriously, when I addressed my issues with he brushed me off. He needs to work on people skills and at least pretend like he cares. Do yourself a favor and choose another Doctor. I am wondering if he is selective what patients he treats with respect, care, and compassion.

I saw Dr. Ivy initially for rotator cuff tendinitis that turned out to be a torn rotator cuff that required surgery. Dr. Ivy was very personable and friendly, and thoroughly explained everything involved pre- and post-op, as well as my PT requirements which included the work I would need to put in for successful healing and range of motion. He answered my MANY questions, and while it was not always what I wanted to hear and is still a work in progress, Dr. Ivy's knowledge and thoroughness are what push me to perform my PT and assures me I'm on the right path! Very professional! Thank you!!!

Dr. Ivy did elbow surgery on me. He had a great bedside manner and explained every step of the surgery so it was easy for me to understand what was going to happen. He made sure he was able to answer any and all questions.

Condescending know-it-all. After surgery to repair my broken shoulder and torn rotator cuff my recovery wasn’t going well. He asked if I suffered from depression. I said I had, in 2010, but not since. He literally threw up his hands and said patients who were depressed took much longer to heal. Didn’t want to listen to me anymore, that it was MY fault I wasn’t healing, not his care. I have since gone to another orthopedic doctor and gotten the care I needed to regain nearly full use of my arm.

He would not answer my questions. He said that I needed surgery. I asked him what would be the likelihood of a successful result. He said, “I don’t deal in numbers; I deal in quality of life.” I asked him how much use of my finger I would regain. Again, “I don’t deal in numbers; I deal in quality of life.” What does that even mean? I’m sorry, but if you’re going to knock me out, cut me open and charge me thousands, you’re going to have to answer my questions. I moved on to a different doctor.

Dr Ivy explained my condition (trigger fingers), tried injections first, and eventually did surgery when I finally asked for it. In pre-op he again explained everything. Did a terrific job talking me through the whole procedure (I opted for local anesthetic), and answered all my questions. I went to OT in his Lombard office. They were also incredibly helpful in my recovery. My hand works great now, 3 months later. Next up, Dr Ivy: my painful shoulder. Thanks!

I visited Dr. Ivy after learning I would need surgery after visiting a hospital in Indiana for a broken arm. Dr. Ivy has increadible bed side manners, is extremely personable, funny, realtable, but most importantly a fantastic doctor. Unlike the previous orthopedist who saw me, he determined surgery was unnecessary and explained why by drawing pictures and generating analogous situations. He also explained his treatment plan and worked with us to determine the next best visit.

Dr. Ivy is the best! I recently had shoulder surgery and he did a great job. So well, in fact, that I will have him doing the other shoulder later this Spring. He has great empathy for his patient's needs and works to alleviate pain. When showed me the pictures of my surgery he explained it so well even a dumb ol' CPA could understand.

Dr Ivy has been amazing. I picked him out because he has a lot of experience with carpal tunnel. When I first saw him I had tingling and numbness in both hands. It was something that was non stop. When I left his office after my first visit I left pain free. He gave me shots and also explained all my issues. He takes the time to listen and to explain, draw a picture, whatever he needs to do to help you understand what is wrong and how he will fix it. Wonderful doctor

Just took my daughter to see Dr. Ivy today for a second opinion on hand/wrist pain. She is a musician and just his gentleness and genuine care was enough to make her and me feel better. He was running behind and even took the time to come in himself to tell us. The entire staff was a delight to be around. Thanks Dr Ivy and DMG Lombard.

Another doctor said that I needed surgery on my wrist so I went to Dr. Ivy for a 2nd opinion. Dr. Ivy took the time to get to know me. He did a thorough exam and ran appropriate test and decided surgery was not needed. My wrist is now healed from just casting it. Thank you Dr. Ivy!
