I took a nasty fall in Sept and I knew immediately something was wrong. I was taken to ER and ER sent me home saying the x-ray on my knee came back normal. If it had not been for my husband telling ER off, I don't think I would have gotten in the next day with Dr. Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan knew I was in extreme pain, scheduled a MRI and was given pain pills that week. Went back Monday and was scheduled for surgery. Dr. Sullivan was kind and patient with me explaining what will take place.

I had a full hip replacement in November of 2015. Being only 42 I was very young and apprehensive about the surgery. Everything went perfect. Zero pain. I am stronger than ever. He helped me through the whole process and was very good at answering questions.

Dr has no bedside manner & very rude, abrupt has the superiority attitude. Doesn't talk to the patient instead talks to his assistant & makes his assistant give directions to the patient. Not coming back to this doctor & not recommending him to anyone.
in Atlantic, IA |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Sullivan for hip replacement. Very informative and very friendly staff. I could not ask for a more caring person. He did a hip replacement for my daughter 4 yrs. ago with the same feelings that I have. His nurse is a real "gem" too. I had my replacement just 2 wks. ago and have sent a new client to him already. I'm still recovering but am doing great!
