There was no temperature check at the second door entrance and some patients were not wearing masks.
April 08, 2021
I can't think of anything that they could have done better. Everything went well. Everybody was courteous and professional and all my questions were answered. I am extremely happy with the staff and Dr. Likes. Nothing that I can think of could be improved. Thank you.

It would be really nice if your x-ray technician would not comment on the people's weight that are in there. Even though I don't weigh a lot, I don't want to hear that I'm really skinny 12 times while I'm in there. And she said it that many times, I counted. It's rude. And you shouldn't comment on people's body.

Not a thing.
March 18, 2021
Stand alone temperature taking device (to make sure that you don't have a fever) was a bit confusing to use when you first come into the office. I was not the only one to have trouble using the device. Other than that everything went well.
March 16, 2021
My visit went perfectly.
March 11, 2021
The office staff is usually very nice and helpful. This visit the appointment was running more than a 1/2 hour behind and that messed up my day with other appointments as well as work.
March 11, 2021
I am extremely happy with Dr. Likes and his office staff. I have no complaints.
February 23, 2021

February 23, 2021

February 23, 2021
Thank you for all the help with my knee from my fall. I couldn't ask for better service.
February 23, 2021
Dr Likes was knowledgeable and answered my questions and concerns.
February 16, 2021
In all Sincerity there is NOT one thing to change or even fine tune!!! Excellent service from the entering to the leaving! Thank you! God bless all staff of Parkview!
February 12, 2021
His concern with my health.

My experience was outstanding.
January 26, 2021
they took time in freezing weather to see to my pain
January 21, 2021
Nothing at all the staff is very friendly and very helpful thank you
January 19, 2021
Yes, I had problem with the clinical staff on my insurance. I was never asked if I had a referral I just assumed since someone made my appointment for that day from the hospital, but that was taken care of Dr. Likes did not do my surgery and therefore I don't know if this staff thought he had I don't know but no one out of two visits asked me about insurance and I asked if I had a copay and they said no no money passes for 90 days and so therefore I didn't have a referral and I'm going to end up having to pay for these visits and I'm very unhappy about it. So clinical staff needs to talk to the patient more about insurance problems.
January 07, 2021
Not such a long time in the waiting room. An hour is way too long.
December 22, 2020
All good so far
December 18, 2020
Helped me when no one else wanted to thanks Dr. Likes
December 18, 2020
Confusing results and too many opinions on what to do for my situation
December 16, 2020
There are no ways for the staff or clinic to improve, they were very busy at this time of year which is understandable.
December 16, 2020
I think the visit yesterday was very good. I have never experienced anything like that. Very professional, very well done. I was very pleased.
December 10, 2020
My experience was fantastic!
December 04, 2020
Nothing everything was very good
December 04, 2020
It would have been easier to have filled out all my medical info on an iPad rather than old fashioned paper. There were a lot of pages and it was very difficult to write with my non dominant hand because of my injury but I can type.
November 05, 2020
The doctor that the whole staff could have known more about after care surgical after care doctor didn't seem to know much about after care. I wasn't the staff didn't seem to be so they could have done better with that. Okay done. I'm done.
October 22, 2020
10 i had very good care
October 15, 2020
Long wait to get registered, which I know Covid 19 has delayed normal operations.
October 06, 2020
Dr. Likes, is a okay doctor. But he didn't go over my x-rays with me to let me know how bad my left shoulder was. All he offered was to give me a cortisone shot which I took and I think he could listen to me a little more and let me know what go on in the future. I told him I was going to have surgery which is tomorrow for a pain pump revision. But anyhow, he could have did a better visit with me. That's my opinion.
October 02, 2020
Everything went very smoothly. Can't think of anything that could have been differently.
October 02, 2020
Be on time for appointment, had to wait in small room for 30 minutes for dactor to show.
September 24, 2020
Improved the wait time to be seen.
September 24, 2020

September 22, 2020
Dr. Likes and his staff were excellent. Everyone was friendly and professional. Dr. Likes really listened to me and answered all my questions.
September 22, 2020
Wait time in the lobby was 40 minutes. I almost left due to the delay. Otherwise, the visit was great.
September 17, 2020
The time wait was too long.
September 17, 2020
The wait to see the doctor was a little long.
September 01, 2020
Everything was great
August 27, 2020
Thorough and respectful.
August 27, 2020
The receptionist was amazing. She really tried to help me with some issues that occurred. I felt she really went out of her way. Also the staff waited for me to try resolve my issue didn't make me reschedule so I really appreciate what they did. The doctor was also great he listened to what I had to say.
August 21, 2020
This offices doctor's, nurses and staff are awesome. Very professional and kind at the same time.
August 20, 2020
Not making us wait an half an hour past our appointment time.
August 18, 2020
The clinical staff and the doctor are highly knowledgeable in what I have going on and there is nothing that they could have done to make it easier or more informational or anything for me. They were perfect.
August 18, 2020
Excellent in all ways. Thank you!!
August 18, 2020
Overall, everything was really good. That office is kind of a notorious for being stingy with the pain medications and what not I only got 5 milligrams of the hydrocodone, my girlfriend got a broken rib, and she got 10 milligrams every 4 times a day and I can only take 1 5 milligram tablet once a day and I'm in brittle pain so more meds would have been great, but other than that, everything was good.
August 18, 2020
Be able to schedule my surgery sooner than 6 wks out or more.
August 18, 2020
Nothing everything was great
August 04, 2020
The wait time was somewhat long. It's hard having to wait so long with a mask on.
August 04, 2020
Nothing Dr.Likes is the best so are the nurses
August 04, 2020
Nothing everyone was very professional
July 31, 2020
Nothing at all
July 30, 2020
Parkview Ortho is an excellent office from staff to providers. I am a nurse practitioner in town and I refer patients to Parkview knowing they will get excellent care.
July 30, 2020
Nothing they are perfect especially the dr thank u all please stay safe we really need yall
July 28, 2020
The receptionist seemed a little impatient with me when I couldn't find my card immediately and the fact that I didn't have my glasses so it's made things difficult to read. I found my glasses and I ultimately found my card.
July 21, 2020
To long wait. 2 minutes with dr
July 21, 2020
Nothing. It was perfect.
July 16, 2020
Nothing I can think of
July 16, 2020
Nothing, everyone was great!
July 14, 2020
Get a radiologist in the office so that you can do injections in the office. I travel over 200 miles round-trip and I have normally have to schedule a SECOND appointment for injections (meaning a second trip).
July 09, 2020
Wait time before getting in was almost one-hour.
July 09, 2020
Less time in the waiting room during COVID.
July 07, 2020
I just wanted to thank the staff for being able to get me in especially since I had a very tough situation with my son that was in the hospital there and they worked with me really well and got me into the for my follow up visit and especially the the girls out front and then Dr. Likes was the exceptionally well, thank you.
July 07, 2020
Cheeseburgers while we wait??
July 02, 2020
I am satisfied.
June 26, 2020
Have appointments on time, or at least a shorter wait.
June 16, 2020
I am completely happy with this provider.
June 16, 2020
Hello, everyone was wonderful. Everyone was efficient. I really like Dr. Likes. He's very nice. The only thing I would suggest is that the doctor be more familiar with the critical things for the visit, such as my MRI history, which he could have gotten from Dr. Van Mannon. I'm disappointed that he didn't dive into my records from Dr. Van Mannon, that I feel like I have to, you know, talk to him from scratch as if he knew nothing about me. I don't like that. I mean there's plenty of medical records for me, and there's a doctor that referred me. He could have gotten those records and he had plenty of time to get them. So that's what I would have liked to have seen. Thank you. Bye.
June 09, 2020
A very caring and professional group.
June 09, 2020
They did everything right. I have no...I have no complaints and just everything was fine. They were very professional and very concerned. That's it. That's all. Hello.
June 02, 2020
More time to fill out the paperwork before going to the patient room. Maybe I'm just slow !
June 02, 2020
I don't think you have to improve anything. Everything was done promptly. Thank you.
May 26, 2020
not sure why the receptionist didnt wear their masks all the time but we had to in the waiting room even though we were practicing safe distancing...
May 21, 2020
Not a thing it was a very Pleasant encounter
May 21, 2020
Overall, I had a very good experience. My only complaint was the push back I got from requesting that my wife be able to come back with me. I understand that the COVID issue is a problem, but if a person wants to bring their spouse back that should be understood.
May 19, 2020
Everything went well.
May 19, 2020
Doctor could have set up the hip surgery for November 2020 with this meeting instead of setting up another appointment for September 2020. Thanks
May 19, 2020
Everything went well, I have absolute trust in Dr Likes, and look forward to further treatment provided by him
May 15, 2020
Shorter wait time in lobby
May 14, 2020
I had to wait 45 minutes to be seen after I was taken to the exam room.
May 14, 2020
Nothing they have always had the utmost respect for me.
May 12, 2020
Yeah, that was great. They are the greatest people in the world. Thank you. I'm out of here.
May 12, 2020
The doctor should probably read about the patient before seeing them, because the doctor seemed like he didn't remember anything at all about my situation about my knee. We had talked about in January having knee surgery and when I saw him, it was like totally the opposite - didn't even know that I had an MRI. So Staff should know more about the patient, read the patient's history on their file, and know about them before even going in to see them.
