Review of Dr. Nelman


Love Dr. Nelman! I’ve always been able to get in to see him within a day of calling. Dr. Nelman made me feel very comfortable, I’m always seen in a timely manner, and free coffee in the waiting room! Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Pakan

-Macedonia, OH |

Dr. Pakan has been our orthopedic surgeon for our whole family-all 7 of us! He has done surgery on our (combined) feet, knees, hands and shoulder. In addition he has treated our family for tennis elbow, golfers elbow and carpal tunnel. He has a great bedside manner and recognizes the source of all our pains. He is friendly and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Pakan


Dr Pakan was pleasant to talk to. His staff was also. He showed us my hip xrays I brought from Dr Blanda. He didn't. give much info,,or elaborated He didn't have access to other medical info via computer his Sec'y said. He didn't mention how total hip surgery could affect me regarding my lumbar back, scoliosis. He did say he could fix my congenital hip dysphasia & help arthritis pain with total hip replacement. His sec'y, tho new shementioned was not efficient in communicating with us.

Review of Dr. Nelman

- in Salem, OH |

Dr Nelman did shoulder surgery on my husband. This was a workers comp case & BWC drug it out for months, literally. Dr Nelman did everything he could to get this surgery expedited. when the time finally came, everything went extremely well. Dr & his staff all treated us very well, They were all very patient and kind, keeping in mind my husband was in pain & very frustrated by the BWC system. I have NO complaints with Dr and/or the Crystal Clinic staff. Would definitely recommend!!!

Review of Dr. Pakan

- in Streetsboro, OH |

Had simple arthroscopic knee surgery. Failed to take me off my meds that stimulates clot formation. Didn't give me anything post-op to prevent clotting. Ended up in the hospital for over a week with 12 lung clots! Called his office twice during my stay in the hospital, but never got a call back. Doesn't follow the Hippocratic oath~ "Do no harm"....."That warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife". Uncaring.

Review of Dr. Pakan

- in Paintown, Oh |

I had a partial knee replacement done by Dr. Pakan in 2015. About a month later I developed an infection & had to be hospitalized to treat it. Pain & swelling never really went away. Had a few follow up appointments & voiced my concerns about constant pain. He assured me that healing takes time & I needed to be patient. Was still having horrible pain 11 months later. Both components he used in the partial replacement were loose. Had to have a total replacement done because of a failed attempt.

Review of Dr. Pakan

- in Columbiana, OH |

Dr. Pakan did a knee replacement for me in 2013. It was a little rough at first, and I needed to have an additional surgery to clean up the scar tissue I had to allow my knee to rehab to fully function. I did everything he recommended and have had success. Knee is working great, functions better and no pain unlike before the surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Pakan. Very caring, knowledgeable, completely explained all my options and questions.

Review of Dr. Mineo

-Kent, OH |

He performed my knee replacement. Which I should have researched. It was 3 years again and I am still in extreme pain. I have been back and he said I may need it redone. I don't understand why and am getting no reason.

Review of Dr. Pakan

- in Ravenna, OH |

Absolutely love Dr. Pakan. He is kind, caring, highly knowledgeable, and very accommodating. His two nurses are a joy to ask questions to and truly go out of their way. But, I am not too keen on his current secretary. I have been seeing him for over two years now and his previous secretary always went out of her way and had such a caring attitude. Not sure why the change, but his newer secretary is cold, rude, and never returns calls promptly. Love him though!!!!
