Great Experience!
I saw Dr. Lindholm for a problem I have with a knee replacement. He listened and acknowledged my concerns. He was reassuring and put me right at ease. Even though this was only my first visit, I have confidence that he knows what he's doing and will take good care of me.

I had partial knee replacement surgery by another Orthopedic Surgeon in November. After pain in knee cap was getting worse and my original Ortho's failure to look into this further, I contacted Dr. Keller and Dr. Lindholm for a 2nd opinion as I knew of their excellent reputation from a past experience with them. I saw Dr. Lindholm immediately and he was and continues to be terrific. He took the time to explain what was going on in reviewing the x-rays then did the same after he ordered a CT scan. He diagnosed a fractured tibia below the knee replacement which was missed by the first Orthopedist. I am already feeling better after a week of non-weight bearing on the leg. The office staff has also been exceptional led by Office Manager, Mercedes. I cannot say enough about Dr. Lindholm, Dr. Keller, Mercedes, and the entire staff. I work in the medical field so I have an idea of medical care. Thank you Dr. Lindholm and Staff!

Since my first call to Dr. L'S office i've been treated with kindness, dignity and respect by all of the staff and the surgery the dr Preformed took my pain away immediately much to my relief! I feel lucky to have found dr lindholm and his staff, especially Mercedes who answered every question I ever threw her away and boy did I have a lot of them in the beginning.Now my leg is healed and I don't think it would be if I did not come to Dr Lindholm and his team I'm so glad I did and I'd recommend them to my friends and family and anybody looking for an orthopedic surgeon.

Fell, fractured my hip. Went to Chilton Hosp ER. Fortunately, Dr Lindholm was on duty. After looking at x-rays he told me all would be ok. Don't even remember surgery, it went so smoothly. He was right, all was ok. Now in recovery/rehab. I highly recommend Dr Lindholm. I was lucky that he was on duty.

This office is one of the best medical practices I have ever visited. Dr. Lindholm is professional, caring and takes time to explain every aspect of what knee surgery would entail; the good and the bad. Office staff is exceptional, most particularly, Mercedes, who clearly loves her job and loves accommodating patients. It is rare that I give 5 starts; this medical practice deserves it.

Dr Lindholm repaired my left biceps tendon in 2011 and my right biceps tendon in 2014. Both times I was amazed at how fast my recovery was and how amazing the surgery went. I had 100% range of motion immediately following my surgery each time. The incision was so small and so precise on each arm that they are barely noticeable. I had a 100% distal tear in each arm and Dr Lindholm got me back to work and back in the gym within weeks. If you want the best, look no further. For such a talented Dr, he’s very humble and does not come off as unapproachable. I appreciate someone with that level of skill and humility. I constantly recommend him and Dr Keller to anyone that’s having a procedure. Thanks again doc.

My daughter had the best help possible on the planet. He performed ankle surgery on my 6 year old daughter from a really bad accident. He was professional, skillful and confident, he was especially considerate to my daughter and treated her like his own daughter. My family & I are very thankful to find such a GREAT doctor. I have already recommended him to several of friends/neighbors. He is absolutely an expert surgeon. It is not easy finding a caring doctor these days. Thank you Dr. Lindholm

I cannot say enough about Dr Lindholm. This man is a wonderful doctor, smart, kind,compassionate,and patient. He has operated on my mother, with success beyond our wildest dreams! He explains everything thoroughly and patiently, sits with you and does not run out in five minutes . I have since brought my husband in to see Dr Lindholm, and when my knee replacement needs replacing, I'm on deck. A stand up guy, rare these days. Super nice office staff too! This Doc knocks it out of the park!

During my mother’s journey to seek a solution for her knee condition, she found Dr. Lindholm, who genuinely cared about her condition. The doctor suggested surgery, and explained the surgical procedure to my mother without any pressure to make a decision right away. He was informative, honest, and understanding. Dr.Lindholm was patient with us, and answered all our questions to our satisfaction. Dr. Lindholm has excellent bedside manners and acts in the best interest of the patients.
