Dr Lindell took a wait and see approach with my daughters scoliosis. Luckily for me I was not pleased with dupage medical group at all and switched to a different doctor. This dr ordered a new brace for my daughter which gave us 50% more improvement in her curve. Had we just waited around for 6 months like Dr Lindell said to we likely would have required spinal surgery.

Fantastic Doctor! Dr. Lindell has treated two of my daredevil children's broken arms. He has a wonderful way with the kids and makes them feel at ease. He explains everything very clearly and it's fairly easy to get an appointment. I hope we don't have any more cause to see an ortho, but if we do, it will certainly be Dr. Lindell!

Dr. Lindell was excellent with our 15 year old son. We had an emergency -over the weekend accident that required surgery and hospitalization. Dr. Lindell was wonderful about explaining our options, kept constant touch with us during the hospital stay, and even went above and beyond to help us with future referrals, to manage sons pain. His nurse has been wonderful returning calls as well. It's refreshing to see a Doctor go above and beyond. He really cares about his patients.

Dr Lindell and his staff have been amazing in treating our daughter's broken femur. Scheduling is always hassle free, the desk staff is friendly & efficient, we never have to wait very long in the waiting room or in the exam room, the xray techs are consistently pleasant & quick, & Dr Lindell himself has been fantastic! He always talks right to our daughter, explaining everything to her so she can understand it without treating her like a little kid. We HIGHLY recommend Dr. Lindell!
