We were asked to arrive at 2:30 for a 3:00 appointment. We were on time but did not see provider until 4:30!! That is unacceptable. I will really think twice before scheduling with this provider again. I'll schedule if it's extremely urgent but maybe not otherwise.
Dr Lindblad is the best GI doctor I have ever been to. He is kind and seems to actually care about me and my health!
Alison, the nurse, was very sympathetic towards my daughter's problems. She relayed messages and questions to Dr. LIndblad and provided answers the soonest she could. She was very helpful. Dr LIndblad however needs more TLC when dealing with his patients. I am disappointed in the length of time it took Dr. Lindblad to provide us results of biopsies. I had to make several calls to the office to gain the results. I am also disappointed in how my questions to Dr Lindblad were addressed. My 15 year old daughter even commented on his lack of interest, interrupting me, etc. As the appointment was ended, he shook my daughter's hand and yet failed to acknowledge me upon his departure. More compassion for the parent is required.
waited over 2 hours to see doctor
He got called out of the office several times but we understood. He seemed very thorough and spent quite a while listening and writing down pertinent information.
I was very pleased with our visit. I felt he really listened and answered our questions and addressed our concerns.
I must say I was hesitant at first regarding Dr.Lindblad . He appears very serious ,however,he came into my son's room with our very first inpatient visit and sat on his bed and interacted very well with my 13yr old. After his colonoscopy he spent 15mins with me explaining things . He is very thorough and I appreciate him taking the time to answer questions . He does an excellent job explaining the dx and disease process. I give him a 10/10. He makes my son feel secure that we have a great doctor like Dr. Lindblad managing his crohns disease. He is worth the 50 min ride into the city or Wexford office.
the doctor came reccomend from several people, and was exceptionally informative
The Dr was texting on his phone n kept telling me to hold on. He did not look at documentation I brought w me. He did not seem to care about my concerns and kept cutting me off when I tried to discuss issues with him. He waited until after he was in the room and quickly reviewed my sons medical records that were previously faxed to him. I never want to see that specific Dr again, he was very noncaring as well as disrespectful.
Dr. Lindblad was very thorough and took time to listen to our concerns. He took into consideration all of her medical history and came up with a plan of action. Very pleased!
My son and I both felt the doctor did not have a friendly disposition. He did not always give eye contact and did not smile. He did not seem to be someone who enjoys children.
we have always been very happy with this provider and his staff!!!
I was impressed with the time spent and given all info so that my husband and I could be apart of the decision making.
I love our provider, we have been seeing him for 9 years, he is the reason we have stayed with children's.
First appointment of the day, but Doctor still entered the room an hour late. Doctor not up to speed on remembering patient and health history. he was clearly reviewing patient info on the computer to refresh his memory.
I am always very happy with our visits. The dr takes time and really talks to me about my concerns. He always explains his thought process about why he does procedures or test and always ask if I am ok with it or have any wants or concerns in regards to my child's care. I could not ask for a better dr. He even personally has called when the test were not good or there were major concerns. I tell everyone who needs a gi doc to go to him
The Provider was very thorough, knowledgeable, and kind
Dr. Lindblad is very calm and his manner helps relax my daughter. For me, he takes the time to answer all my questions.
