      Dr. Popp is the reason I walk, run, and Dance again!!! I was in a terrible accident and Dr. Popp really worked miracles!!! The first Dr. I was assigned to from the ER gave me a terrible prognosis! Dr. Popp pushed me to do what I needed to do. I continue to see him and other amazing Dr. at this practice. I truly love it here!!!!

      Dr. Popp and his team has set my mind at ease as I deal with the world of workman compensation, I had an opportunity to select from any doctor and I am glad I choose Dr. Popp at Fox Valley Orthopedics. On one occasion Dr.Popp was not scheduled at the Geneva location and made it a point to see me because of my pain.

      My experience with Dr. Popp was outstanding and he exceeded my expectations. He is a gifted surgeon, dedicated to his profession, extremely knowledgeable and efficient. I have absolutely no reservations whatsoever about recommending him. His skill transformed my life as I thought I was headed for a disability prior to surgery and now am feeling as good as I did 35 years ago.
      Dr. Popp and his team were the only ones able to get me an appointment quickly. I had such extreme pain and his entire team made sure to get me to a place where I could be "comfortable". They worked diligently and efficiently to evaluate, test, and set a treatment plan. I felt like he really understood my situation and worked to get me fixed ASAP. His bedside manner was empathetic and reassuring. He listened to my concerns and took the necessary time to plan appropriately!

      Don't waste your time. We waited for 55 minutes to see him and he basically told us nothing. I leaned more about the condition by Googling it!

      I have nothing but a good experience with Dr,Popp. I have had a few surgeries before and he has worked very hard to try and figure out the problem. I highly recommend Dr. Popp. I have been to many where they said there is nothing we can do for you. Dr. Popp and his staff told me we will figure this out and I am very thankful for there hard work.
