“Very polite and very knowledgable with putting me at ease. Explains my issues with plain language that I can understand, does not talk over my head, (with big words) like some doctors! If I had questions? Dr. Dykstra was more than happy to explain to me again and again until I understood what he was saying, just an Awesome guy!

“Dr. Chilvers provided the best care after I had ruptured my Achilles nearly a year ago. She provided all the detailed information and options prior to surgery and provided caring and knowledgeable support after surgery and throughout my recovery period. Although I do not wish injuries on anyone, if you have any foot or ankle problems that require a visit to an Orthopedic provider, I highly recommend Dr. Chilvers!”
