My wife had an issue that she has been struggling with for years because she didn't think anybody could help her. Dr. Bettendorf and his amazing skills changed her life for the better. He also has an awesome bedside manner and couldn't be a nicer person. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bettendorf.

Bettendorf is absolutely wonderful! He worked with me to make changes to a surgery, that left me comfortable with the process. And, in the meantime, when I experienced fears over the whole thing, he gave me the freedom to cancel or proceed - and the security to proceed well. He goes above and beyond to give you the best possible experience.
