Patient Reviews: Dr. MacLennan
“Dr. MacLennan allowed me the experience to meet with him within two days of first calling and at the end of that day so he could have sufficient time to view my MRI images and discuss doing a 3 level lumbar fusion. Unfortunately, the news was that my bone density was too low to have the surgery with success which broke my wife’s and my heart that day but at least now I know that if I had chosen another surgeon my life would be even worse than it is now. I plan on making the next move by his suggestion to see another specialist for pain management. My years as a professional motorcycle racer has taken its toll, but I trust his words and accept the outcome of his findings to be accurate and straightforward”

“Dr. MacLennan was very informative on questions I had about my surgery and present pain I am having. I have always been satisfied with him and would recommend him to anyone. Steindler Clinic also has treated me very well, and again, I would recommend them to anyone who has an orthopedic need.”

“I had an evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon in Florida. I went to Dr. Maclennan for a second opinion. He told me the same thing the Florida doctor had told me - that I needed surgery to alleviate the pain and numbness in my legs. If I had to have surgery, I wanted it done in Iowa and at the Steindler Clinic. I had full confidence in Dr. Maclennan from the first visit and that has not changed. He is a fine competent doctor and surgeon and a nice person to be around. My husband and I both feel very comfortable with him. He explained everything before surgery, after surgery and at the follow-up visits. He is just a top-notch doctor.”

“Dr. Maclennan performed successful back surgery on me back in 2008. He was very careful to explain what the surgery would entail, what the possible risks would be, probable healing time, and probably answered more questions than I knew to ask. He is one of the most caring doctors I have been treated by in my many years. I was most grateful to him for the difference he made in that time of my life and am to this day!! I am most grateful to him.”

“Dr. MacLennan is my savior. I'd suffered back /leg pain since September, 2016. Injections and PT were only temporary fixes. I finally requested an MRI be done in December. It revealed a severely pinched nerve at L3. For some reason, I was told that surgery wasn't advised because of having previous back surgery at L4,L5. I got an injection at the L3 level which did nothing. I was finally referred by Dr. Dery to see Dr. MacLennan in January. He told me surgery was my only option to relieve the pinched nerve. I had an L3,L4 laminectomy and fusion done on January 31. My recovery has been amazingly quick due to Dr. MacLennan's expertise and knowledge. I can now enjoy life again with no residual leg pain. Thank you, Dr. MacLennan.”

“He is the best orthopedics doctor that I have seen. He explained everything so well to me and made sure that I understood. I had to go through four doctors before see him and he was the only one to tell me what was really wrong with my back and hips. Great experience and will defiantly recommend him to everyone Dr. MacLennan ROCKS!!!!!!!”
