This was a follow-up to my total knee replacement in April.

I was the provider first patient but did not see him till an hour had pasted the resident provided all the care I saw the provider for about 10 minutes and the resident documented all of the visit. I understand the staff physician is busy but being the first patient he did not visit me when I first arrived, to me that is not what should happen in a clinic by any physician. Patients are suppose to be important then they should at least be recognized by the staff physician first with the resident then if he wants the resident to do the leg work then it is okay.

My experience is that Dr. Lillmars is one of the best orthopedic specialists and surgeons I have encountered. He is excellent as a surgeon and doctor. His demeanor and treatment of myself is above reproach. I have and would continue to refer anyone in need of such service that is offered by him. His reputation precedes him and he is a gentle soul whose concern is for his patient.

Feb 23
my experiences with dr.lillmars are always good, had him for my doctor for30 plus years
Feb 16
Dr. made me feel really stupid because I couldn't pin point my symptoms - he did not believe me!
Feb 13
Did not/could not help w/my issue, however, he also did not direct me to someone who could help. Left feeling frustrated.
Feb 11
He seems completely annoyed when I said I didn't want surgery without trying non-surgical methods first. He was not concerned about my thoughts he only wanted me to agree to surgery right away.
Feb 9
There was no need to discuss medications during this visit. There was much discussion about questions/concerns and expectations for the future to achieve previous normal. Time with Doctor seemed to be adequate to answer all questions, even though the time frame was short it did not seem to be. The Doctor and PA did not appear to be rushing me through.
Feb 9
Understanding all my concerns.
Jan 19
Very painful surgery and Dr. Lillmars and his support staff were terrific. I have recommended him and will continue to do so. He is a very caring and kind physician.
Jan 16
Dr. Lillmars and his PA are excellent. I was especially pleased with their willingness to answer all my questions and I never got a sense of either one needing to hurry up and get to the next appointment. Their calm manner and straightforward answers to my questions were appreciated.
