Dr. Lindholm is outstanding. 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 his service to several of my friends/neighbors. He is absolutely an expert surgeon and his team is superb. It is not easy finding a caring doctor these days. Thank you Dr. Lindholm for saving my daughter’s leg. You rock! :))

Amazing experience. Dr. Lindholm performed arthroscopic knee surgery which went very smoothly and exactly the way he said it would go (no surprises!). He takes the time to explain everything and answer all your questions. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend 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!

Dr. Lindholm is extremely knowledgable in his field. He took time to explain to me what was going on, and was helpful where others had failed. I am now back to running and doing triathlons thanks to Dr. Lindholm.

Dr. Lindholm is an extremely caring and compassionate doctor! He takes the time to listen and cares about me as an individual!! I only wished I had seen him before my knee was replaced by another doctor! I am happy he is my doctor now and have already recommended him to family and friends!!

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.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr Lindholm. This amazing man, gave my mother the ability to walk again after a fall, a surgery gone bad, and a long wait due to complications beyond anyone’s control , for a total hip replacement. There were a number of factors in my mothers case that threatened a negative outcome. Dr Lindholm had a plan, he explained, ever so patiently to myself, and my mother, his plan, utilizing a model of the prosthesis, and her x-ray. He was confident, without being cocky, kind, smart, patient, and an all around nice person. He seemed genuinely concerned about my mother, her outcome, and her understanding of the entire procedure. (a rare quality in a surgeon to sit and explain – not five words and run out of the room) After operating on my mom, he also sat down, took his time in explaining the details of how the procedure went, and already had a back-up plan, and a back-up to his back-up , just in case some of the negative factors involved in my mothers case, did not turn out as we all hoped. This is impressive. Having a long history with ortho surgeries with complications myself, it is unusual to find a doctor this kind, compassionate, and smart.
