Erik Close, DO – Orthopedic Surgeon in Marshalltown, Iowa | McFarland Clinic

Hello, my name is Eric Close. I am an
orthopedic surgeon. I joined McFarland Clinic in 2018, and I
practice in Marshalltown, Iowa. I chose Orthopedic Surgery because
patients usually have a real issue that can be treated, and you can take care of that
problem or injury, and they can get better and get back to life. I offer anything in your –extremities–
arms, legs, anything that involves that– a little bit of hand, sports injuries, broken
bones, total knees, total hips. When they first come to see me, we’re
going to talk a lot about whatever their problem is. We’ll get to the nitty gritty, talk about
some things maybe may not seem like they’re related to that problem, and then
we’ll do a physical exam, and then we’ll maybe look at some X-rays, and then come up with a diagnosis
and a treatment plan. The best part about what I do is seeing
patients get back to their daily life and get back to doing the things they want to do. Extraordinary Care means to me meeting
the patient, finding out their needs, working with the patient on their
diagnosis and together coming up with a treatment plan that’s not necessarily what
I want to do, not necessarily what they want to do–what’s best for them is what
Extraordinary Care means. When I’m not working, I like to go sailing,
I like to read, I like to play poker, I like to hang out with my kids and go to
their sporting events.
