Dr. Kaldis is incredible 1/24/2012

Good: They get you in quickly and you rarely wait for long. Dr. Kaldis is a great surgeon and my back problem is so much better since he did my surgery. He gave me my life back and I am so grateful. His staff is kind and efficient, especially his nurse.. Bad: Dr. Kaldis can be abrupt and to the point. If you are a sensitive type he may not be for you.. more

Great results 12/4/2011

Dr Kaldis fixed my back problem. I had a l5s1 laminectomy. If Dr Kaldis has your MRI in his hands, he knows exactly what needs to be done, so if you're looking for long conversations, he's not the one. If you're looking for results, he is the surgeon you need. This doctor has made such a difference in my life, I can only recommend him. more

OVER BOOKED, UNDER CARE 11/23/2011

This is the worst doctor I have ever met. He overbooked and spent no more than a minute with me. All he wanted was surgery. I went to see a second opinion , after xray was done I was told nothing wrong with my foot, just a case of arthritis. He gives medical profession a bad name. more

Great Doctor 10/12/2011

I had a partial knee replacement over 10 years ago and it has been one of the best things I ever did. I have been very satisfied with the job Dr. Lionbergere did. I think the therapy you must do is the key to the success. more

Lacks Ethics 7/1/2011

Dr Lionberger's office filed my insurance claim incorrectly and refused to do anything about it. They sent the account to collection agency even though they caused the problem! Dr Lionberger, personally, told me "insurance processing is a courtesy" and that he wouldn't pull the account from collection! I guess he forgot about the Physician Provider Contract he signed with Aetna that requires him to file the claims! He's arrogant and all his humanitarian claims on his website are marketing hype. Find another Ortho that has better ethics!!!! more

GREAT DOC 6/8/2011

Speaking as an RN and a patient...I think he is a great doc. He placed rods in my back when I was 12 years old. I have NEVER had one problem with my back...I am not 30 years old :) I just gave birth to my 2nd child. I had an S curved back that was off my 45 degrees in two different places. He did a great job. I have had a chance to read some of the other comments on this site. One person commented on his bedside mannor. I have to say....WHO CARES. He was always kind to me. What matters most is that he doesn't mess up in the OR, more

Great Doctor! 5/12/2011

This man is an excellent doctor and did a spinal fusion surgery for me 6 years ago that I have not had issues with since. Recently, my knee started acting up and my GP referred me to a local ortho but I told him I already have a guy, Dr. Kaldis(BTW-After 6 years he recognized me when I came back!). If you want a no nonsense, professional diagnosis, and proper treatment he is your man! If you want to talk about your issue, along with the weather, current events, or your kids, then let your friends diagnose you. more

Great surgeon 8/12/2010

IF you need back surgery, Dr. Kaldis is a great doctor. If you need someone to hold your hand while you "vent" about how much pain you're in, find another doctor. He is good at what he does, so don't waste his time asking him to do something else. more

He is good at what he does 6/11/2010

I was refered to Dr. Kaldis by a doctor. With Dr. Kaldis I am pain free... For years other doctors could not help me. Tom Diffenal more

Knee Replacement 6/4/2010

Dr. Lionberger and his staff are so efficient and made the knee replacement a smooth experience. My knee feels great. I would definetely recommend him. Ana C. more

Knee replacement 5/24/2010

Total knee replacement four years ago next month. Pain is worse than it was the day of surgery. Replacement was a complete disaster. Am considering amputation. It can't be any worse than what I am going through now. Constant daily pain never lets up. except when taking llarge doses of pain killers. take my advise do not get it done or get another doctor. more

Excellent results 1/6/2010

Very happy with Lionberger and office. I was 62 and had both hips replaced in one week. I found him by asking a physical therapist -> Who was currently best hip surgeon. Keep in mind, they see the end results and can make an educated judgment on results. more

Three Joint Replacements 12/31/2009

Dr. Lionberger has replaced three of my joints - both hips and one shoulder - starting 10 years ago. In every case, the procedure and my options were thoroughly explained to me, as well as what to expect post-surgery. In all cases, he personally called me the evening before surgery, and followed up after surgery. His staff provided detailed instructions on what I had to do before surgery - getting medical clearances, pre-registering, etc. - and post -surgery - meds, incision care, level of activity and rehab, etc. The 10-year old hip is great and still shows no wear. Shoulders are tough - the rehab is much more involved than hips. However, I followed his and the physical therapist's instructions and have a very functional shoulder now. Expect to be at 80% on shoulder rehab in about a year, close to 100% in 2 years. I'm now at 5 years and very happy with the shoulder. Second hip was a month ago. Less invasive than 10 years ago and only 1 night in the hospital. I have been very happy with my treatment and the outcomes of all three replacements. If I have to have another and Dr. Lionberger is still practicing, he will be my guy again. more

awesome 9/21/2009

I have worked with him on many occasions and he does a great job more

over 15 years with dr. kaldis and wouldn't go to anyone else 9/2/2009

i have been a patient of dr. kaldis for over 15 years - goes back to when he was with baylor. i have followed his practice and have recommended him to many friends and he treated my daughter, as well, all with great results. i have NEVER spent more than 15 minutes in a waiting room, i barely have time to read a magazine much less get any knitting done (i quit bringing my knitting for my visits with him). i don't go to a dr's office to socialize. he is cordial, caring, asks questions and gives a diagnosis and treatment plan. because he does value his patients both in the exam room and in the waiting room, he doesn't overbook his appt. times which means that the waiting time is better than any other physicians i visit. he has kept my back & shoulder issues in check helping me avoid surgery - he is and will continue to be my favorite doctor and i will continue to recommend him without any reservations - for those of you who want to share your life stories and waste other patients' time - i suggest you go see a shrink! more

Unprofessional Dr. and office. 7/28/2009

I hope that Dr. Lionberger is a fine doctor. On surgery day he seems preoccupied and short on conversation. My step mother once fell down some stairs and injured herself. Dr. Lionberger was pulled out of surgery at her request by the emergency room. She complained that Dr. Lionberger gave her only a cursory examination and did not provide sufficient care. I suffered a severe compound fracture to my leg and Dr. Lionberger put it together with way more toe turnout than what my good leg has. Perhaps this was unavoidable, but Lionberger explained it that he chose to give my foot a lot of turnout in order to match my natural turnout. If that's true, then he missed. Finally on my recent surgery, things with him went south as he and his office acted in an unprofessional manner over a simple matter of an insurance pre-certification of his prescription. On top of all that, I was admitted to the hospital with the surgery scheduled for the wrong leg. As incredible as it seems, when I was on a gurney and a nurse came to do a pre-surgery interview of allergies and such, in my chart I was recorded for the wrong leg. (Needless to say this was corrected before the surgery). In conclusion, this office, and Dr. Lionberger himself, are unprofessional in various ways. The phone goes unanswered. My voice mails were not answered the same day. They don't do pre-certification of prescriptions, which may cost the patient extra money. The office staff is arrogant and condescending. Dr. Lionberger will address issues of payment and misunderstandings and complaints personally, which most doctors are above, and he's not nice about it. Dr. Lionberger will side with his staff rather than listen to the patient or adopt a "the customer is always right" attitude. Dr. Lionberger will pick up the phone and "set the patient straight" if his people complain to him. This office got my orders wrong to the hospital and I was checked in for the wrong leg. Dr. Lionberger is very arrogant, adopting an "I do what I do. Like it or look elsewhere" policy. more

Best Doctor in Houston 7/13/2009

I have known Dr. Kaldis for quite some time and have seen his dedication to his work in many ways. If you want an Orthopedic doctor who is the best in Houston, Dr. Mike is the one. He is to the point, thorough and just a down to earth guy that helps you understand complex things in simple layman's terms. more

Excellent! 6/3/2009

I was told I would be in a wheel chair and to get used to it. I have always been a very active person and did not only did not want this for the rest of my life but I had a young child to take care of. After seeing numerous doctors in other states, I came to Dr. Lionberger. I am walking and enjoying life and especially am a mother to my child. Thank you doctor and your team of professionals for making this possible. Anna-Marie G. more

Never again 4/15/2009

Horrible attitude, he did not listen to anything I had to say about my back. Never will consider him for follow up visit ! more

hip replacement 3/23/2009

Dr. Lionberger did a revision (replace a replacement done by another dr.) plus a new total hip replacement for me. Was out of the hospital after overnight stays. Great Dr. who loves his job. more
