Testimonials for Dr. Walker
I saw Dr. Alvine in Pipestone, MN. This has helped me miss less work. I have benefited from the PT also.
This was my first visit to the institute. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. Dr Alvine and Mary, who I saw are exceptional.
I have been going to Dr. Alvine since 2009 or so… have always been treated well and have had my questions answered to my understanding! I have severe ankle and feet issues…. and have several surgeries with Dr. Alvine and it has improved my quality of life!! All staff from walking in the door to leaving have been polite and helpful!
Dr. Alvine and Mary have been taking care of me for the last 7 years since having a major back, ankle, and leg injury! I’ve had two additional surgeries in the last 4 years and can’t thank Dr. Alvine, Mary, and their staff enough for everything they have done. I highly recommend them to anyone with an orthopedic injury!
I have been so scared to get the surgery Dr. Alvine recommended and finally got it done Wednesday and I couldn’t be happier! The pain I have from the surgery is less than when I was going to work everyday and trying to live a normal life! The staff and Dr. Alvine have been the most pleasant and comforting people I have ever met. Knowing that they care and are there to help has made this process so much smoother for me. And even hearing that I will need yet another surgery I can say I am not worried about it and know that I can trust everyone there. THANK YOU all at Core orthopedic
Dr. Alvine preformed an ankle fusion on my left ankle in 2016. It was a complete success. So glad he did it.
