We love hearing from our patient's after they visit the Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center.

  • Dr. Fischer is the only man I trust with my hands and elbows…he has done surgery on me five times and I wouldn’t trust anyone else! I don’t even question.. he says it needs to be done and I ask when.. Amazing and caring doctor. - Robin Lore S. | Facebook

  • Dr. Baltera is a wonderful surgeon. He replaced my husbands shoulders. Dr. Baltera also performed surgery on my shoulders…I highly recommend him. He is a kind, gentle person while knowing exactly what he is doing. - Phyllis H. | Facebook

  • I had carpal tunnel on my right hand first and 2.5 years later, my left hand. Dr. Kleinman also diagnosed an elbow nerve problem on my left arm and fixed that also. Both my first and second operations went well and I no longer have my hands becoming numb. All went smoothly. - Rollie H.| Vitals

  • Greg Merrell is a genius. He replaced my left shoulder a few years ago following a fall. Although he tried to save the shoulder which had been shattered into 4 pieces, he decided to install the artificial shoulder. I also had a broken right arm at the same time from the fall. Surgery went without a hitch but recovery and therapy was unpleasant. Rehab therapist Gail, was amazing,  personable and expert in her field. Molly, RN closely followed me and was an expert in her part of the recovery. Although Molly told me that I would never be able to extend my arm straight up, she had to eat crow when I showed her my amazing recovery. She was good natured about it. Greg’s scars are beautiful.  I asked him why they were barely visible during this visit and he told me that he uses a plastic surgery stitch so the scars are almost imperceptible. Greg’s mother should be proud. - Sandra B. | Angie's List

  • I think he is excellent as a surgeon. I had shoulder surgery about 4 months ago and so far so good the shoulder feels good. I saw around 8 different orthopedic surgeons before seeing Dr. Crosby and he was the best one. I think he spends enough time with his patients and answers all their questions and he really wants the patient to get better. I did research a lot about my surgery before it was done and asked about what was going to be done to my shoulder and found he was up to date on all the newest and best methods as far as repairing my shoulder. Also the therapy staff is very good they are reassuring and even when i was worried about something i was able to call and get all my questions answered without feeling like i was bothering anyone. - Felicia M. | Vitals

  • Dr. Kaplan is a great doctor and a great person as well. He and the staff at Indiana Hand to Shoulder are unsurpassed. - Bill Y. | Facebook

  • In December 2013 I cut my finger through the tendon and nerve. I had to have both repaired. Dr. Greenberg is a wonderful surgeon and has an excellent team. The therapy center is also wonderful. The head therapist coordinator Nancy Cannon is a wonderful person. She really helped me through my journey and does her job well. I highly recommend Head to Shoulder to anyone and everyone! -Alicia A. B. | Facebook

  • I have been seeing Dr. Hoyer for about a year and I think he is a fabulous physician, very professional and personable too. I highly recommend Dr. Hoyer. The staff in his office has been very nice too. - Debra | Vitals

  • Dr. Kleinman. I will be forever grateful for the corrective surgeries you performed to get my wrist working again. - Lori A. | Facebook

  • Dr. Merrell is top notch. He performed surgery on my child’s broken arm in the early hours of the morning. Outstanding communication, especially to my 8 year old. He empowered her to work on post-op care and rehabilitation as opposed to relying only on the parents, and she responded amazingly. His explanations and genuine nature were outstanding. Outcome has been perfect. His follow-up at times was even unsolicited via telephone, as opposed to waiting on an appointment, which was very comforting. We feel very lucky to have had Dr. Merrell. We totally recommend his services. - Phil P. | Vitals

  • Dr. Peck is awesome! Couldn’t have asked for better care for my daughter! - Sharyn Lane T. | Facebook
