      in Dowagiac, MI |
      The most caring professional I have dealt with in years. My mother had a fall requiring emergency surgery. He was very compassionate and explained everything to the family. He never seemed in a hurry and always had my mother's interest at heart.
      South Haven, Michigan |
      Personable, professional, easy to talk to, patiently answered my questions and discussed treatment options. Would recommend him without hesitation.
      in Benton Harbor, MI |
      Dr. Postma was amazing. He was pleasant, professional and caring. He performed surgery on my hand with excellent results. He took plenty of time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions.
      in Benton Harbor, MI |
      Dr. Postma met me prior to, and after the surgery, explained every step, and took the time to put me at ease. His PA was a reassuring presence as well. We are truly blessed to have a physician of such skill as well as approachability. Every detail was attended to and explained in a way that minimized any anxiety. We truly have an exceptional surgical team at Lakeland Hospital Watervliet. With my left shoulder surgical procedure, I had minimal discomfort and minimal swelling.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
