While visiting our freshman daughter at UT Austin, I experienced an acute gallbladder attack with a chronic stone in the neck of the gallbladder. Immediately upon entering the ER room, Dr. Lindsey listened to my symptoms, reviewed medical records from my hometown, consulted with me and my family and performed a laparoscopic removal on a holiday weekend. He is professional, empathetic, and a clear communicator. His kindness radiates. He made long distance follow up easy and accessible by phone. – Brandy D. (Healthgrades)
We only get one body in our lifetime so it is important to find a qualified doctor, at times skilled surgeon. Dr. Lindsey is both! Three weeks ago, he repaired my umbilical hernia which is healing with no side effects nor pain. He is an excellent communicator, very attentive and has a wonderful demeanor. He took time to comfort my wife, keeping her informed. Everyone on his team who helped in the endeavor was fantastic; I feel well taken care of! – R. Kent B. (Healthgrades)
Mark Lindsey is a superior surgeon. Wonderful bedside manner, extremely knowledgeable & competent. I would give him 10 stars if I could. If you need a surgeon, he’s your guy. – Donald S. (Healthgrades)
