Dr Phillips is amazing. I had surgery on my back twice and both times I knew as soon as I came out of anesthetic the surgery was successful.

In less then 2 hours I learned more about my physical problems then I've had the previous two months in Sioux City. Dr. Phillips was all about my well being and what's best for me. I could not have been more satisfied.

Dr. Phillips very helpful in helping me to understand my diagnosis! He pulled up my MRI and X-ray results and went over them thoroughly with me, making sure I understood what I was looking at. I was then given two options for treatment and allowed to chose the path I would like to go!

He explained everything to me so I could understand. He figured out that my family doctor sent me with a misdiagnosis and he was able to refer me on to and Ortho doctor and got me in the same day. I traveled 100+ miles for the appointment so it was great that he was able to do this. Highly recommend him and his staff!

First time at the practice. Met by courteous front desk folks. The nurse was thorough and listened well. Dr. Phillips was approachable and open to full dialogue. I even needed to ask another question afterward and he was willing to reengage. Getting all PT and my follow up appointments were a breeze to set. Overall, a very good experience.
