Very curt, under interested, and want me to know there were no guarantees prior to surgery. Little did I know the area he operated on no longer hurts but the rest of the foot hurts, where it previously didn’t! I will never recommend him!

Dr. Lindberg has cared for me for a number of years for different problems of my feet & ankles and has done an INCREDIBLE job! He is a minimalist - wants to do the least to get the best benefit but he has done 2 surgeries (for different problems) and they went so much better than I could have ever hoped! He is also personable and professional with great bedside manner. I absolutely recommend Dr. Lindberg!

Dr. Lindberg did my Achilles tendon surgery, a procedure he's clearly done thousands of times. He is very experienced and I felt very confident in his knowledge and abilities. He was very clear in explaining what the was happening, what to expect, how long the recovery would be, etc. His Medical Assistant, Miranda was a pleasure to work with -- very responsive to my questions and concerns. I was always able to get in and out quickly for my appointments and enjoyed the experience.

Dr. Lindbergh removed the sesmoid bone from my left foot in 2007. The surgery took about 3 years to cause a hammer toe to develope which, in turn, has resulted in severe pain on a daily basis. Naturally, I eventually made an appointment with this surgeon to discuss this disappointing and painful outcome with him. And naturally, he suggested another surgery, and naturally, I declined his suggestion. He couldn't have cared less that my foot was actually in worse condition - and shape - than before

I had a very large bunion and arthritis forming that required straightening the big toe, shaving down the bunion and fusing three toes at the mid-foot. Every aspect of the surgery and recovery went exactly as I was told that it would. It was a long recovery, although it worked! I was a very good patient, followed all instructions. The big surprise was that I had minimal pain. I was expecting a nightmare and was very concerned about getting hooked on opiods. Overall, a great experience.

I was seen very quickly by Orthopedic Associates after falling, for surgery on my fibula (fall on Wednesday, surgery on the following Saturday). Eric Lindberg was great, answered every question/concern I had, and consequently tried to make my recovery as easy on my family and me (ie getting me off of the crutches as quickly as possible) as he could.

Dr. Lindberg has been my orthopedic surgeon for 3 of my foot surgeries and my son's foot surgery and was GREAT! I loved the staff and the care he and his staff took with all of us!

I fractured my fibula and Dr. Lindberg recommended surgery as the best option to heal properly. They made me feel comfortable and walked me through every step before and after the surgery. Through many office visits, casts and x-rays, I have no complaints at all. I hope I never have to see another orthopedic surgeon but if I do, I won't see anyone but Dr. Lindberg.

I ruptured my Achilles tendon in February 2017. I was able to see Dr. Lindberg a couple days later and he quickly assessed my injury. He recommended surgery as the best option and a couple days later we scheduled the surgery. Everything has gone extremely well, and I am quite pleased with my recovery. Dr. Lindberg definitely knows his stuff and his staff is incredibly friendly and attentive.

Your front desk staff is rushed, rude, and highly disorganized, especially on the phone. If this location wasn't most convenient for me, I'd go somewhere else solely based on that.

No bedside manner. He was very kurt, abrupt and gave a very mediocre explanation to me. I felt rushed. I got a 2nd opinion and was much happier with the care I got elsewhere. I have used another doctor in this practice and was much happier.

Have been treated for bunionectomy, plantar fibramatosis, and 4 breaks in mt left foot/ankle. No other ortho will touch my feet, except for Dr. Lindberg. He is the BEST

Dr. Lindberg was thorough and delivered exceptional care when I broke my toe a couple weeks ago. I would recommend him and his staff for any orthopedic care.

Dr. Linberg is great. He has performed two arthritis surgeries and a right ankle OCD surgery over the past number of years all with great success. I have no limitations and still run, hike and mtn bike. I was also able to run a half marathon this spring. I have referred a number of my clients to him and they have all been very pleased.

Dr. Lindberg repaired ligaments that I had torn 15 years ago playing collegiate soccer. I'm now 3 months since my surgery and my ankle feels amazing. If I could forget the past 15 years of pain, I would never know that I had been injured. The surgical repair has improved my functionality by leaps and bounds and I no longer have chronic pain or the constant fear of rolling and further injuring my ankle. I am so happy with the outcome!
