Office staff is rude. Office is closed over lunch. Dr Lindaman is often out of office and no medical personal is available for days to answer questions. My 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with a rare bone disease. Gave us no explanation of the disease to Mom or child and sent us on our way on a Friday afternoon to get more tests and follow up in 6 weeks. A caring doctor would of stayed to explain a new diagnosis to a scared child and make sure the parent had time to ask questions. Not even a handout. After 5 days of getting the run around on lab results and getting additional tests scheduled I sought a 2nd opinion. Well that didn’t go well and after being yelled at by the office manager and told to back down and that I was a terrible mother, we knew we needed a new doctor. Don’t waste your time with this office if you expect any compassion. They should be ashamed. A doctor with a God complex is not a place to take your child. Any good doctor would recommend another opinion because they would care for their patients and want them to have the best treatment options, even if it wasn’t them. I guess when your lacking knowledge you have every reason to be scared patients would never come back after 5 minutes with a good doctor. Time with patients is not important and wasn’t a priority with this office. I still can’t believe this office is qualified to care for children and families.

Dr. Lindaman is the best doctor I've ever had. He and his staff are very kind and professional. Was taken care of here for Scoliosis and it's been almost 3 years and we still keep in touch.

Rude Staff and Doctor

This Dr was very rude and so was his office staff. I had to wait over an hour for an appointment that I arrived on time for and was told by his staff that I should be grateful that he is seeing me as he is a very busy DR. I arrived at 4pm and was not seen until 5pm. When I complained the office staff became combative and told me the Dr was late for his dinner party by staying late to see me. Really? Too many Dr's have God complexes. If I had arrived an hour late I bet he would not have seen me but it's ok if I have to wait an hour and I better not complain. I will never visit this Dr. again. He didn't have the decency to apologize for making us wait so long. I changed Dr's the next day.

Mr. Lindeman is ordering unnecessary Vitamin D test on every patient so that he can use the research in his study.

Pleasant experience

This Dr has cared for my son since birth. My son was born with double club feet. Dr. Lindaman has performed three surgeries on both feet and the results were tremendous every time. My son is now 18 and his feet are fully functional.
