Dr. Von Gillern is the best doctor I've ever known. I have had multiple surgeries on my hands & he has done an excellent job.

This was a terrible experience. Von Gillern uses outdated surgical techniques and does not refer out when necessary. He performed surgery on a normal variant in my hand and completely avoided the ruptured collateral ligament in my 3rd MCP joint. Although he did bill for correcting the collateral ligament which he did not touch. This is evidenced not only by where he made his incision but also by the fact that I had a second surgery by a specialist in Des Moines who confirmed it was untouched. After Von Gillern performed surgery it was clear that my 3rd digit was still grossly misaligned and he tried to explain it away by saying I just had some osteoarthritis. He was evidently unaware of my extensive medical background which makes me believe he probably lies to the majority of his patients when he is unsuccessful in surgery. This man should have his license revoked in my opinion.

Dr. VonGillern is a very knowledgeable orthopedist. I was very pleased with him and appreciated his care and skills. The only negative things about my experience were the long waits in the office and his lack of describing treatment and what to expect. But he is an excellent doctor.
