Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Everyone from Erica at the Front Desk to Brittany and Ashley as the Medical Team were patient, courteous and compassionate. Dr Kindl himself, actually listened and after reviewing all the information, gave a diagnosis and discussed what it meant for my recovery. Truly grateful for such great medical care & personnel in this time of pandemic.

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!
