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.

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.

I had a successful meniscus repair on my knee with Dr. Lindholm. I am very pleased with the procedure, my recovery, and my follow-up visit. The office staff – Sue, Leta, and particularly, Mercedes are beyond helpful, courteous, and professional. I am recommending Dr. Lindholm to everyone; as well as the surgical facility.

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.
