Review of Dr. Knesek

- in Hobart, IN |

I have been going to Dr. Knesek for close to a year for cortisone injections in both knees. I am trying to postpone knee replacement surgeries for as long as possible. Like the other reviews listed, he explains things, doesn't rush to surgery as the first and only option. He is kind and totally listens to what your goals are, and then offers his opinion. When I do have both knee replacement surgeries, he will be the one to perform them. Rhonda, Hobart, IN June 15, 2019

Review of Dr. Andrews

- |

Dr Andrew is a great doctor he will Let you know what needs to be done. I’m having problem bending the knee and asked about hiporstending the knee but it’s been a year and he told me that it might crack the knee. He’s going to go in and clean up the scare tissue. That was a great idea because I didn’t want a cracked knee.

Review of Dr. Schwartz

- |

I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz. My husband had treatment by him several years ago. When I began experiencing pain with my wrist, I immediately made an appointment with him. When I returned I spoke with his PA(Ricky). He was a wonderful young man who answered all my questions very patiently and thoroughly.

I felt comfortable with him. He generated an imitate feeling of confidence in his abilities from the first few minutes of the appointment. Dr. Schwartz was open to my concerns about my treatment.

Review of Dr. Hyder

- in Gary , IN |

Dr. Hyder and his staff are extremely knowledgeable. I have bad pain in my lower back, but Dr. Hyder decided that physical therapy should be exhausted prior to considering surgery. So far it has helped. I am confident that I am in good hands. Thank you for helping me Dr. Hyder!

Review of Dr. Ham

- in GARY, IN |

He did a partial hip replacement on my mom. It went so well we decided to see him about my mother's knee. He recommended a total knee replacement. It's healing nicely and waiting until she can walk without pain.

Review of Dr. Hong

- |

Dr. Hong recently repaired my ruptured Achilles' tendon. Due to my significant (2 month) delay in getting the tendon examined, I created a much worse condition for repair. But, Dr. Hong was able to re-connect the tendon, which initially seemed very unlikely. I thoroughly respect and enjoy being under his care.

Review of Dr. Knesek

- in Lansing, IL |

I had both of my knees replaced by Dr. Knesek 8 weeks apart earlier this year. I chose Dr. Knesek because he performs the MAKO robotic procedure. I felt I would have the best outcome with this procedure. It has been almost 5 months since my first knee was done, and I am very satisfied with the results. I had excellent care by Dr. Knesek and his staff and would highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Schwartz

- |

Dr. Schwartz and his team are excellent! I fractured my wrist in multiple places requiring surgery with pins and plates. From my initial consultation, till my last appointment, I was not only handled professionally, but with kindness, care, and compassion as well. My surgical site and scar look amazing, and I could not be happier with my recovery. I had a great experience with Dr. Schwartz and his staff and would highly recommend them. They made me feel important and individual in all areas of my care.
