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.

Rigid and rude
Dr. Linter refused to see me once I arrived, because I asked to answer 3 pre-appointment questions directly, or on a written questionnaire. I opted out of the app because the contract explicitly stated Methodist is not liable for the security of your personal data on their app! The contract also said registration on the app is 'optional'. I offered repeatedly to answer his 3 questions on paper but he stubbornly directed his staff to cancel my appointment on the spot.

Excellent experience with Dr. Lintner. While many other doctors didn’t address my problem, he knew right away what my issue was, explained it thoroughly, and took care of it. So grateful we found him!

based my experience with the office personnel I would strongly recommend that no one use this physician. After my first x ray I was promised that someone would contact me and that did not happen. Three weeks later I finally spoke with someone and they were not interested in a complaint just taking insurance money. many answering machines later. Ms. Luz does not allow me to tell Dr Litner my experience in is office, but they have my insurance money dont they.

Office staff is very courteous and the office is well run. Dr. Lintner is outstanding. He is very professional and confident, with a very soothing bedside manner. It is obvious that he knows his craft and I appreciate that he was very honest and conservative in his management. I highly recommend him for any orthopedic sports injuries or problems.

I just had my third surgery with Dr. Linter not for the same injury this was for my knee but the results were the same. I had no swelling, very little pain if any and I was walking without any aid in less than 48 hours. I first met him when he was fresh out of medical school and he repaired my shoulder and I've never had a problem since. He is a gifted surgeon that loves to do what he does and does it really well. I've had a lot of injuries and surgeries but by far he had been the best.
