I am so thankful for the wonderful, professional care I always receive from Dr. Linschoten. He has replaced both my knees and one hip. I have had excellent care throughout the process of evaluation, preventative care and ultimately with replacement of my joints. I highly recommend Dr. Linschoten...more

One of the worst doctors I have ever encountered. Horrible bedside manner. No feeling for the patient. Does not want to answer questions and either does not answer or lies about patients condition. Would not recommend him to anyone.

I pride myself on my beside manner as does my staff. It stems from a sincere and genuine care for all of our patients . So to hear of disappointment in the experience or treatment is deeply concerning. I understand that a certain diagnosis or recommendation may not be ideal, but I never lie to any of my patients as it is unethical and could endanger them. Without knowledge of a problem my staff and I are unable to offer the appropriate help. Please reach out if needed.
