Muskegon, MI |
We recommend Dr. Bielema to anyone who will listen! My husband had a hip replacement in March, and the care and attention we were given rates ten stars! Katie at his office was phenomenal with prompt phone calls returned, help with everything we needed AFTER surgery as well. Quickly. Professionally. After surgery was completed, I spoke with the nurses about Dr. Bielema, and they said he is an EXCELLENT surgeon, and that is who they would use for themselves or family. That says alot!

This physician might be good for some but he talks more than listens to your reason for presenting. Also, there doesn't seem to be follow up with results or treatment plans which seems fundamental but is missing with this office.

Dr. Bielema is very good about explaining what his next step is and how he is going to do so and why. He ALWAYS checks for understanding too. Very easy going guy that knows what he is doing and he definitely shows it. AWESOME physician to client rapport.
