“I highly recommend Dr. Timothy Lindley. Alexandria is very fortunate to have this professional neurosurgeon.”
– Ron S.
“The whole staff at Heartland Orthopedics from the receptionist to nurses, xray and doctor was totally great. I was seen in a very timely manner. The staff were very respectful and courteous. Dr. Lindley is very knowledgable. I felt like he genuinely cared. He took the time to answer all my questions and to discuss my medical issue. I have had surgery with Dr. Lindley in the past and was very pleased, thus the reason I am traveling over 200 miles, to be treated by him again.”
– Candy W.
“Dr. Lindley was very down to earth and explained my back issues better than any other physician that I had seen for the problem in 15 years. He ended up referring me to an awesome docgtor at the Mayo Clinic because my condition was not treatable at Alomere. It was an intense 6 hour surgery that required a team. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lindley. I trust him completely!”
– Cindy K.
“We reviewed my exam results and provided an acceptable recommendation. He was thorough and thoughtful.”
– Virgil C.
“Dr. Lindley seems to be a caring and sincere person. He explained everything to my husband and me. I told my husband before Dr. Lindsey came in that I was not going to have another surgery on my neck, but after he explain what was going on in my neck and said what they would do, I agreed and so did my husband that the sooner we did it the better!”

Back Reviews

“After five weeks of back pain, I had surgery. Immediately after surgery, I had no pain. After two weeks, I am still pain-free.”
– Gary M.
“I had been dealing with chronic back pain for many years and saw two other surgeons who said they could not help me. I decided to try Heartland Orthopedic Specialists in Alexandria and was overwhelmed when Dr. Lindley told me he could help me. I am 51 years old and was using a walker to get around. I had been dependent on opioids to deal with the pain. The people at Heartland Orthopedic Specialists and Douglas County Hospital were amazing. I didn't think I had another chance, but I was wrong. I am now able to get around, and the nerve pain is gone. As of this post, I have been off all opioids for more than a year. Thank you, Dr. Lindley, you made every difference in my life when I thought there was no hope left and to all the staff who supported me and encouraged me to walk, walk, walk.”
– Barbara J.
“I asked Dr. Lindley to fix my back the day of the surgery and he said he would. He indicated to me that hefound it to be a difficult surgery, the results were good. It is now 4 weeks later and everything seems to be going well.”
– Leroy M.
“I have no complaints. All were very professional and very friendly. Made my procedure go very smoothly. I am very thankful, they were able to get me in 3 weeks early for my surgery being I was in such terrible pain. I thank everyone for the good care I received.”
– Wendy S.
“ My experience included highly trained Physicians and staff that were both knowledgeable and caring. The procedure process included a session of information and questions answered along with a handbook to rely on as well. Everyone was given the upmost respect and helping to ease any concerns we might have.”

Neck Reviews

“I have to travel 100 miles for my appointment/treatment. I always arrive early and am always in early. If I need another test of any type, they always try to accommodate me so I don’t have to make another round trip. Consultation, treatment, and surgery are performed professionally and in a caring manner. I highly recommend Dr Lindsey and his staff. I also received excellent care during my hospital stay.”

“Very good.”

Spine Reviews

“I was referred to Dr. Lindley regarding my spinal stenosis medical problem. I was impressed from start to finish with my surgery. I received a thorough 60 page information booklet custom made regarding instructions and explanations regarding my surgery procedure. After my surgery Dr. Lindley told me everything went perfect. On my first follow up appt, I met a friend of mine coming out of the Heartland Clinic, he asked why I was entering the clinic. He said did you have surgery done in Alexandria. I said yes I did and would highly recommend Dr. Lindley.”
