Dr. Hruska has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced with a surgeon. She cares, she listens, and she takes time to explain procedures and options. She is an expert in her field with the best reviews from nurses and colleagues alike. So thankful to have her as part of my medical cancer fighting army!

Dr Lindy Hruska is an outstanding surgeon. She successfully performed a robotic, laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Her bed side manner is a perfect balance of caring, information, empathy and skill. She gives you confidence throughout the experience. Dr Hruska works closely with you from the first consultation, pre surgery, surgery, post surgery and recover visit. She works with great people. Everyone from her front office, nurses and team at surgery. Thanks for taking great care of me. Mark

Lindy was the breast surgeon for my wife's double mastectomy. She came into the room at our first meeting and confidence and compassion was immediately felt by us. in our meeting she said "let's take care of this and get it behind us." She promised to take good care, gave my wife a terrific smile and hug, and we scheduled the surgery. All went perfect, even the node biopsy. At our post op visit, she entered the room and said "hey Ms. no sign of cancer in your lymph lady!". That felt awesome.

I had an infection that needed to be drained and treated immediately. My primary doctor sent me to Dr. Hruska. She met me within 5 minutes of getting to her office , performed the procedure needed, which turned out to be pretty involved, and explained to my wife and I how to treat the wound and what to watch for and expect. During that initial visit and the 4 follow up visits Dr. Hruska was terrific. I would highly recommend this talented, compassionate doctor.
