Review for Dr. Soueid

Dr. Jacobs did rt knee replacement in 2015 and because of the success of that surgery, I'm having the left knee surgery on 10/05/2020. I completely feel that that surgery will be as well as the first.

My visit with Dr. Egudu has definitely solidified my fondness for Med Star Health. The entire staff was cordial, attentive, respectful, and caring. I grade my visit 10 out of 10.

The Medstar organization allowed me to do rehab surgery, preop, and other things all with the same people, which saved me a lot of time !

Dr Jacobs replaced both of my hips in 2018 and it went very well. He is the reason I am mobile and working today. I went from out of state and had a lot of questions. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Review for Dr. Jacobs

Dr. Hembree exceeded my expectations. I've had a nagging injury and finally sought out help to get it repaired. My ankle feels sturdier than it has in years and the scar has healed beautifully. I would recommend Dr. Hembree's care without reservation.

I had surgery in 2017 for chiari malformation. After several complications I healed, well in mid 2019 symptoms came back. I saw another dr in his practice because he has retired and since I’ve seen dr Kooshkabadi he has been the best surgeon I’ve ever had. So go to Kooshkabadi and leave abdo alone.

Review for Dr. Gokoyeva

Dr. Murthi and his team were the only doctors willing to take on my case. I had been dislocating for years and he was able to use a ankle cadaver graft to stabilize my shoulder. It's obvious how skilled he is but he's just a wonderful person and so down to earth. I have my life back.

Dr. Ukens cares about his patients and not the bottom line. Always takes time to explain the course of action and follows up on any difficulties you encounter. From financial to personal issues Dr. Ukens treats the patient as if they were a number one priority. So glad I found him

Was taken to the hospital after having a seizure with no warning. The doctor performed surgery the next day and removed a baseball size tumor from my brain. Saved my life! This was in 2016 and still doing great today! He's a great doctor and a pleasure to talk to! His staff was fantastic too!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Laporte’s for quite some time. She always takes the extra steps to ensure that the care you receive is adequate. She’s called after every surgery I’ve ever had. I couldn’t ask for a better Orthopedist. Love her!

Review for Dr. Laporte

My only suggestion is that a patient should be told more about to expect in terms of what recovery is like. I didn't realize that my thumb surgery was really wrist surgery and that all the time in splint and cast would so profoundly impact my entire hand, wrist. A rude awakening.
