Dr. Lundeen is a highly competent surgeon. You cannot find anyone better. Healed fast without any pain to speak of, even though it was a big surgery to straighten all toes. A magician, magnificent work.

Everyone I have had has been wonderful. I have seen Dr. Lundeen more than most and I love his demeanor and the way he cares. Simply the best!

This man is a god! I had such a pleasant experience! I am six weeks post as of yesterday, I'm already able to put 100% weight baring, after screws and plates, and a horrible break in three places. My scar is light pink and will probably be way lighter in no time. I had absolutely no pain after surgery and I mean none! Amazing work! You brought me back!

Dr. Lundeen is a great doctor and an amazing person. He has never given up on me and my ankle problems. One step at a time, hopefully with minimal pain. Thank you to you and your staff. See ya soon!!!!!
