~ G. Bistrow
“My experience with Dr. Von Thron has been nothing but positive. As our school physician I have seen athletes welcomed into Dr. Von Thron’s office on numerous occasions for an array of injuries and always greeted with professionalism and courtesy. There is a sense of urgency to accommodate patients and see that their needs are met. I have found that not only the treatment in the office but the follow-up visits complimented with physical therapy to be outstanding. As a mother I have had my children need Dr. Von Thron’s assistance and I can personally testify that he is thorough in his examination, astute in his diagnosis and conscientious in his follow-up treatment. Even though the news at times has been bad, the experience overall with Dr. Von Thron and JOI is one I look upon as positive and satisfying.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. von Thron’s for the past 4+ years and was so impressed with his kind and compassionate care from the very first appointment. He has always demonstrated exceptional medical skill coupled with genuine warmth and caring. His medical assistant, Stacy, is outstanding in her patient care and always makes me feel comfortable and cared for. At a time when physicians are all too often rushed and impersonal, Dr. Von Thron rises above the “norm” to deliver quality medical care with warmth, kindness, and genuineness seldom experienced. He and Stacy deliver exceptional patient care consistently, and do so with a smile!”

“He is not only an expert at his craft of putting our bones and lives back together, he is a caring, dedicated, honest and thorough physician. We’re thankful he is our doctor and friend.”
