in Pelham, AL |
On a Saturday I fell down stairs at our home and broke both large bones in my leg and bones in my ankle with a huge blister from the twist fracture. Dr. Lindsey was on call. From the time I got to the ER at Shelby Hospital through my first of four (4) surgeries, I was treated with excellent care. Dr. Lindsey is a man of few words but getting my leg back together and getting me healed was so apparent in his constant care. His staff was so helpful and kind as well. I am now fully recovered.
Birmingham, AL |
I saw him for foot pain as a referral from the ER at Shelby Hospital. He said nothing was wrong to sent me to a podiatrist, who with in 10 minutes of seeing my xrays informed I had a broken foot. I would not recommend him or see him again.
