I appreciate Dr Lindberg getting me in the office so quickly! I suspected I had a stress fracture so I utilized a boot for a week to play it safe but he confirmed no fracture and I was able start healing my issue and return to walking right away without a boot. If I had to wait 3 weeks to get in I would still be in a boot and losing circulation and muscle use. Dr Lindberg has always helped me diagnose quickly and provide options for recovery without being in a rush.

I was so impressed with Dr. Lindberg and his staff. From the moment I came in with my broken ankle they put me at ease and answered all of my questions. Every step of the way was handled professionally. I never felt like I was just another patient. Their care was specific for me. I was given a clear idea of what to expect and how to improve my chances of a full recovery. I am so grateful that they could put me back together.

Dr. Lindberg is a fantastic doctor. I felt so safe in his care. I went to another doctor first and just didn’t feel 100% comfortable, so I decided to get a second opinion. I started asking around and two family friends recommended Dr. Lindberg so I decided to go to him for a second opinion. I had a Friday appointment, and went into surgery the following Monday, and felt less pain 3 days after surgery than I did pre surgery. My recovery has been an absolute dream so far. His entire team is helpful and genuinely feels HAPPY to help. Very positive environment. Highly recommend.

I had trimalleolar surgery. Everything Dr Lindberg has told me to expect has been accurate and on point, week to week, visit to visit. He’s never made me feel badly about my panic or fears. He's answered questions. He’s reminded me that my injury was significant and that I can take my time. His surgical work seems to be impeccable. I can’t even imagine fixing my multi-fractured tibia and fibula bones, but he did it and he did an amazing job. My hardware remains in tact and at six months, I continue to show improvement. His office staff has been excellent as well. I highly recommend them for their welcoming, friendly culture and their expertise in orthopedic surgery patient care.

Dr Lindberg and his staff are fantastic! I was in a very difficult and complex situation as a result of a different doctor's foot surgery. For three years I watched as my exceptionally active lifestyle slowly slipped away. Dr Lindberg was understanding of my dillema and addressed the situation with expert surgical skill. For him, it may have been just another day of surgery. But for me, the positive result is life-changing and opens the door to getting my life back. It's hard to express how much I appreciate what he and his staff have done for me.

I was exploring the possibility of finding another surgeon for an elective and simple outpatient procedure that had been authorized by my insurance. At my first appointment, Dr. Lindberg suggested the surgery was clearly not indicated. In my somewhat extensive experience, I'd never met a surgeon who declined an opportunity. I found this extraordinary. Subsequent explanations of what he saw were succinct and easily understood. My highest recommendations go to Dr. Lindberg.
