in Caledonia, MI |
I waited until I was completely recovered to write this review. Overall, my rotator cuff surgery and recovery went better than expected. Dr. Lebolt prescribes a specific Physical Therapy "recipe" that my therapist and I followed strictly. At almost 8 months post-surgery I'd say I have 100% strength, 95% mobility, and less than 2% of the pain compared to pre-surgery. I have recommended Dr. Lebolt to several friends already.

One of the best orthopedics I have encountered.

Caledonia, MI |
Loved having him as my Dr. I've had numerous surgeries and he was one of the best. Very concerned about getting me back to full strength as quickly and safely as possible. Great experience with him and his PA Brian. He did a great job of explaining my condition and used analogies that were easy for me to understand.

Dr. Labolt is great. I have had a very good experience with him and the staff. I will highly recommend him.

I would never recommend this doctor ever!

He is talented, experienced and his optomisim encourages healing. If one has had a lot of pain and trouble moving, he seems like a miracle worker. As a life long violinist , I had spent over 10 years looking for a solution. I only wanted to stop hurting. I no longer expected to be able to use my shoulder . It is now hard to remember my complete lack of mobility. I approach him with well established doubt. This time, I had found someone that understood and corrected my issue.
in Wayland, MI |
Dr. Lebolt was excellent in repairing our teenage son's ACL and meniscus. He was very engaged in our son's wellbeing and his team was great in comforting our son during surgery! I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Lebolt is the best surgeon. He was down to earth and was very considerate. I felt like I could always ask questions and get an honest and trustworthy answer.
in Kentwood, MI |
Dr. Lebolt performed the surgery on my left shoulder in 2012. I had good results with the surgery and recovery. When I started having the same problems with my right shoulder, I asked to be referred back to Dr. Lebolt. He remembered me even though three years had passed. I ended up needing the same surgery on my right shoulder. I am currently recovering and attending physical therapy a couple times per week. It's been 6 weeks since surgery and my range of motion is steadily improving.
Uses every intsrument possible to get back to sport as quick as possible, direct, positive, very strict on rehab protocol
