I was very disappointed in my visit today with Dr. CHUINARD in the Kalkaska Clinic. When my doctor referred me to their office it was for a cortisone injection for my tendonitis in my wrist when I called and scheduled the appointment I told them this exact thing tendonitis cortisone injection for my wrist when I got there today the doctor walks in the room the first thing he said to me was " wrists aren't really my specialty". I had tried ibuprofen which made my stomach sick and splinting for almost 3 months his suggestion was a milder form of ibuprofen and some topical gel to maybe calm it down and some physical therapy. His bedside manner was horrible. I will not recommend this office to anyone and I'm seeking treatment elsewhere.

Dr Chuinard has done surgeries on myself and my relatives. He is very thorough, very professional and very compassionate. Will take great care of you. I have seen both sides of his surgeries... having been a patient and a recovery room nurse.. highly recommend him.

Terrible!. You get nurse practitioner. They misdiagnosed. Turned out my mother needed surgery, it was a cracked elbow and not a bruise . Nurse called out for the family of "a 80 year old woman. Then prescribed Oxycoton, herion, which had horrible side effects, called to get a change, no call back. Then the antibiotic had a bad effect, called to get advice, they did not call back. You get a recording impossible to get a live person. Avoid this DR and Great Lakes Ortho!
