I was given excellent care by Dr. Neff and his staff. My surgery at Broadlawns went smoothly and the care I received was caring and compassionate. Any questions I had were answered almost before I had the opportunity to ask them.

Horrible. He was negligent and kept playing off an unsuccessful knee replacement he did for my mother. Upon second opinion, it was totally obvious he did a bad operation and was doing whatever he could to not admit this and confront the problem. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

Dr Neff is an outstanding Ortho surgeon. He has successfully repaired damage to knees, hands, wrists, arm and shoulder over the last 33 years. In my experience he only uses surgery as a last choice when other treatments have failed to solve the problem. Most of all, he listens to his patient and actually talks to them.
in Savage, MN |
Awesome surgeon! I compound fractured my arm in gymnastics and he came in to the hospital for emergency surgery for me and fixed my arm <3 he then gave me surgery on the arm again a year later to remove the hardware upon my request. I was still able to do gymnastics after all of this too! Highly recommended!

The doctor is quick to do surgery but lacks the skill and ability to still do so competently. Should anything go wrong during your surgery with this doctor instead of looking for the issue he will submit you to a different doctor to avoid any issues. My suggestion is to start with a different doctor to avoid any issues to begin with.
