My Experience here has been nothing but exceptional. I knew I could not go on the way my neck was. My surgery experience was also exceptional. My neck feels fantastic. I highly recommend Dr Lundin and his staff!

I was so happy with Dr Lundin. Frankly, I was quite worried/afraid with my condition and Dr Lundin did such a nice job of being frank about options but also was compassionate about short and long term effects. He provided guidance that allowed me to make the best decision short and long term. Dr. Lundin is so knowledgeable but able to put things in terms that I understood. I am fortunate to have Dr Lundin as my provider; very confident with his guidance. (He also is just a really good guy)

My only regret is not having surgery sooner. I'm enjoying life without pain or numbness. It's fabulous! I recommend anyone with spinal issues to see Dr. Lundin. Thank you Doctor!

You can not put a price on quality of life - Dr Lundin gave back my quality of life. I talk about the tremendous job Dr Lundin did with my surgery and I highly recommend him. Thank you!

At initial consult, Dr Lundin introduced himself, put MRI up on the monitor, and said "this needs surgery," with no intervening discussion, exam, etc, in spite of images showing multiple potential pain sources, after which he was ready to schedule major surgery. Questioning got only brief, unilluminating responses from him. A different surgeon later did extensive testing to ID which issues were actually sources of pain, determing I needed a more extensive surgery, which ultimately helped my pain
Without any ID and specifics of your problem it is difficult to respond but I will say that we always evaluate and examine every patient we see. There are often many approaches to treating the same problem and we focus on less invasive/extensive procedures if they are available and appropriate. Medical studies show that often times more invasive/extensive procedures have higher complications and longer recovery times. Regardless, I am happy you found a surgeon you "click" with and good luck.

Can't find enough words to say how great it is to be a patient of Dr. Lundin and his team here at VMC joint and spine center. He was the first doctor of many to understand and identify my symptoms where others just thought I was exaggerating or they were stumped by my explanation. My symptoms were greatly improved right after surgery and his team kept me very comfortable overnight. Hospitality was top notch from check-in to release the next day. I would recommend Dr. Lundin and his team to all.
Happy to hear we helped you and that you had a great experience. We pride ourselves on offering a thorough and timely evaluation in a warm and caring environment. We soon forward to seeing you soon in follow up.

I thought he was arrogant,sarcastic and unprofessional. Very poor bedside manner, and even less in-depth knowledge of the most current advances in medicine. Does not care about the welfare of his patients. Office staff is dour and unfriendly. Waiting room was empty. Patients are expected to arrive thirty minutes before appointment time. Doctor leaves if you arrive even five minutes after scheduled appointment time. Traffic in the area is awful, access to the facility is difficult & confusing.
Unfortunately, the person who posted this review was never seen in our office, nor have they ever been registered in the UW system so it is difficult for me to respond to such criticism. That said, we always strive for excellence and certainly this would not be a typical experience in our office.
