Patient Stories

"It's been 2 years since my knee replacement surgery (8-10-20) and I continually sing the praises of Dr. Andrew Odland and all the medical staff at Iowa Specialty Hospital in Clarion.  Everyone gets an A+ in my books! Thank-you for improving my quality of life."
Carol Ann Niewald

As far as I'm concerned, I had a "Wow" experience for the exceptional care that I was given both times I was at this hospital.

The nurses & CNAs are some of the most personable, caring, compassionate, efficient, knowledgeable individuals, and as a team are the best.  They are truly an asset to your hospital.

Recently, Terry Baxter (Iowa State Representative) reached out to Dr. Odland to ask if he would be willing to look at a gentleman that lived in Iquitos, Peru.  Manual was living with intense knee pain.  The following is the story of his journey to the U.S. and Iowa Specialty Hospitals.

“Dr. Palit is the best…he is caring, explains everything so that you understand.  I would recommend him to anyone who has knee problems. Iowa Specialty Clinics is the place to go and Dr. Palit is awesome.” 
Angelia M.

I will recommend your hospital to others. Really glad to know there is a good place for health care in our community.

Dr. Li is the BEST - which you already know.

The staff was outstanding!  I also want to thank Dr. Nelson as for weeks prior, other health care providers really didn't listen to how much pain I was in, and being referred to Dr. Palit and then to Dr Nelson, I can tell they truly cared and wanted to help me as quickly as possible.
