Patient Reviews

“I found Dr Lindley to be very professional and caring. I had a lot of questions and he took the time to answer each and everyone of them. Never making me feel like I was being rushed. I was always so nervous about having any surgery done to my neck, but he assured me he had done this particular surgery many many times. After talking with him I understood exactly what had to be done and scheduled my surgery. Both my surgery and recovery went really well. I did as I was told following Dr's orders to the letter, and this helped my healing immensely.”

“I have been doctoring with my foot/ankle since April, with another foot doctor. My daughter suggested that I should get a second opinion. Since I had knee replacements at your hospital and I am a patient of Dr. Dale, I called for a appointment with your Foot Doctor. What a wonderful Dr. Sticha is, he knew what was wrong with my foot in about 10 minutes, had X-rays that confirmed his diagnosis. Put me in a brace for Adult Aquired Flatfoot. The pain is gone and I am able to go on my walks. God Bless you, Dr. Sticha!!!”

“Dr. Lindley did the following things that impressed me and reassured me that he was a good choice as a surgeon. 1. We traveled to Alexandria from Moorhead because he came highly recommended by people I know and other medical professionals. I will also recommend him to others...I already have. 2. He spent TIME with me and my husband explaining the type of surgery I would have done. Dr. Lindley answered our questions and we both felt reassured that this was a good decision. 3. I have had such a good recovery and followed all instructions that he and James Spaeth gave to me upon leaving the hospital. I'm not doing cartwheels but have returned to all activities. 4. I have NO PAIN!! He is an exceptional surgeon. Thank you Dr. Lindley”

“The PA treating me was the only positive experience of the entire visit. Teri was polite, knowledgeable and explained everything in a clear, concise manner without treating me like I was 2 years old. She diagnosed the problem quickly after a thorough check, gave me all my options and recommended the least invasive process to start with. She administered the treatment with care and precision. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking treatment.”
