Review of Dr. Walczak


Very condescending attitude. Not helpful. Discouraged when we left for surgery consult after she had a torn labrum in hip. Made my 16 year old daughter cry.

Review of Dr. Walczak


Dr Walczak is talented, thoughtful, caring, and has a great sense of humor. I pretty much needed hip surgery (after tearing so many other ligaments, I know what 'need surgical intervention' feels like) and he was the first one to actually take the time to assess my situation, listen to and address my concerns. Even though he stated up front he tries to avoid surgery whenever possible, he let me know I needed to get surgery. He discussed the procedure before and afterwards, shared images from the laparoscopy and discussed their significance -- treated me like I have a functioning brain in my head which I so so appreciate. So far, I'm healing up really well; I have complete confidence in Dr. Walczak and if (god forbid) need more orthopedic surgery, I would definitely seek him out.

Review of Dr. Scerpella


ACL reconstruction and LCL repair surgery was done. Everything from preoperation to the operation itself was done with the professionalism you’d expect from a surgeon and the care that you’d expect from a family member. Dr. Scerpella and her team was nothing less than remarkable.

I far as I can tell everything went smoothly, I was off of crutches the day after the surgery with very little pain or discomfort. Her and her staff are friendly.

Dr Walczak is an expert in joint preservation surgical measures. He is kind, thoughtful, caring, and humbly confident. I am very proud to say that he did my hip arthroscopy.

Review of Dr. Scerpella

- in Sun Prairie, WI |

I was referred to Dr. Scerpella by an out of network orthopedic surgeon because of a rare injury. I could not have received better care. She is attentive and caring. Dr. Scerpella knew exactly how to fix my leg! And, as an added bonus, her bedside manor is wonderful. I was the 3rd patient she performed a "Tib/Fib reconstruction with a hamstring autograph". She is AMAZING, and did indeed fix my leg. Go see her... unless you DON'T want the best. #healed #grateful #blessedtobeunderhercare.

Review of Dr. Scerpella

-Norwalk, WI |

Whatever you do, DON'T question the actions of any of her staff! When you do & ask why you were treated rudely, she will argue about how perfect her staff is & drop you as a patient. She will tell you she will call you no later than the following day& NEVER call. Don't cross your arms because she will tell you that you're being adversarial, without asking why they're crossed. NOT GOOD AT PATIENT RELATIONS!!!!

Review of Dr. Scerpella

-Madison, WI |

Dr. Scerpella is fantastic! I'm a medically complicated case, and she's spent over a year and a half trying all sort of methods--not just surgery--to fix my injury and help me walk. She is often running late for appointments, but it's because she spends the time she needs to with the patients, not the time that UW Health says she should. She is super smart and caring; she makes the best decision for the patient, even if it's a difficult one.
