What People Say About Dr. Daniel Ivankovich, MD

Dr. Ivankovich is extremely professional and compassionate. Prior to my visit with Dr. Dan, I was told by another surgeon that nothing could be done about my wrist injury. Needless to say, that as a musician, I was frightened. Dr. Dan came into the room and made me feel at ease with a cool story about one of his musical experiences. We then reviewed my x-rays/CT and he explained the injury and treatment options. I had surgery 2 days later to fix my wrist and haven't looke...

I've had an incredible experience being treated by Dr. Ivankovich. He is one of the most experienced and relatable surgeons that I have ever met. My back pain is 80% relieved just 3 months after surgery, and I'm able to do many activities that I simply couldn't prior to treatment. The staff is also incredibly helpful and supportive.
