    What our patients have to say

    We are reliable & trusted
    • Dr. Dykes,

      Thank you so very much for treating my shoulder injury. You and your staff have done an excellent job in restoring me to good health. The re-hab is going well and Gretchen is great to work with. I am glad Dr. Simmons sent me to your clinic.

      Pat O.

    • I just wanted to say thank you, Dr. Dykes has performed two surgeries on my husband for a shattered elbow, one to put a plate in and fix it, and one to remove the plate. The care that this doctor has for his patients is wonderful. You can tell that he really loves what he does and cares about his patients. Both he and Justin have been so kind and patient throughout the recovery and healing of Jimmy’s arm. If I ever need a surgical procedure for something like this I know I will be requesting Dr. Dykes!
      Angela and Jimmy J.

    • Wanted to say Dr. Gerhardt did a wonderful job on my surgery January 24th, 2018. I’m 100% better on my right side body, no numbness what so ever.
