I couldn't make an appointment because his receptionist is very rude. I'm sorry, but when a new patient calls crying, you don't just abruptly interrupt and place the call on hold.

Dr. Kindl was truly a great help when my mom needed hip surgery. Not only did he take the time to explain to our family what was happening and why, he made sure he placed my mom with an orthopedic surgeon that specialized in her needs and followed up with me after just in case I had any questions or concerns. Dr. Kindl is an exceptional orthopedic doctor and will be my #1 choice for all of my family's future orthopedic needs!

Im Kevin Hernandez, Im 59 and my wrist was shattered and in bad shape. Dr. Kindl called and offed to do a Volar Plate Proceedure. Its 3 weeks ater surgery, and my wrist is coming along fine. I got a look at my x rays a few days ago, and what I saw was a masterpiece. Dr. Kindl is an artist at surgical proceedures. I highly recommend him for any ortho surgery. And him, Hes COOL COOL COOL
