We love to hear our patients' stories, because it means that we are providing exceptional service! Read our patient testimonials below to see what our patients are saying about us.

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.”

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.

I had a chance to interact with quite a few of the staff members during my visit.  They were all very friendly and showed concern for my situation, both the medical and the situation concerning my insurance.

Ben Becker was awesome.  He showed a concern due to my x-ray and took the precautions to rule out the worst. I am very thankful he took it seriously.

The staff was pleasant & helpful. Had a great nurse. Dr. Li was nice and told me all about my injury. He showed me a model of a knee and told me what my surgery and recovery would involve.

I always feel that I get the best care at your office.  I prefer to go straight to you than to a middle person and get a referral.
