Care Philosophy

I treat adult and Pediactrics patients with many activity related injurys including those that are sports related. The patients range from the weekend warrior, school athlete, competitive sports and working athlete to those that just had a bad day and something happened they just cannot explain. My first goal is to make a good and accurate diagnosis and then select the best most conservative treatments available. Surgery should be our last choice. Whenever possible restoration of normal function is our main goal. If surgery is required, I use the least invasive method to best correct the Injury. We try our best to reduce the risks as much as possible for the best outcomes with a low complication rate.Read more

Dr. Reznik is a highly renowned doctor who is extremely relatable. He is a very good listener and he is very thorough. Just because he is surgeon, doesn't mean that he always offers surgery as an answer. Love that.

I was under a doctor's care for twwo years and all i heard was replace the kneee ,then i went to dr.reznick and everything changed for the better he suggested a bone grAPH, AND IT WAS GREAT.Going on a year working out and playing golf like years ago,thankyou Dr. Reznik.
in North Haven, CT |
I have been a patient of Dr. Reznik since 1993. I have had 2 surgical procedures (shoulder and knee) and several other injuries that he has been able to correct without surgical intervention. He gives his best effort every time I see him in making sure I understand what the diagnosis is. He is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor in his field. His genuine concern and overall professionalism provides a sense of comfort knowing that you are in the best hands.

Dr Reznik is simply the best. He performed knee surgery on my son 5 years ago who had to many doctors who could not help or identify the problem.He diagnosed and recommend the best way to proceed.A year after graduating schoo the CT. National Guard checked him out completely and he was able to join them.He recently performed a Mumford procedure on my shoulder and now after not sleeping well for years I can sleep and rest comfortably..he's also a smart Doc who's down to earth like a regular guy
in Hamden, CT |
The office is a money machine practice. Reznik is not bad but his physical therapy practice is laughable! Many of the therapists are lazy and uninterested in the betterment of a patient! PLEASE STEER CLEAR of the physical therapy portion of this practice and they are a pathetic group of losers!
in Guilford, CT |
Professional, he has a great deal of experience and can zoom in on a problem. He's a genius with arthroscopic surgery. I had an unusual surgery with removal of plates and screws from a previous surgery. After interviewing 5 surgeons I found he was the only one that knew how to do the surgery and knew how to do it with minimal invasion. I was up and walking in 2 days, super easy recovery.

With over 25 years of experience, Dr Reznik brings a full set of experiences to the practice of medicine from volunteer missions overseas to level one trauma he has seen a great deal of the comm and uncommon problems each and everyday. He has corrected other failed surgeries, is asked for second opinions for complex knee and shoulder injuries. He was the first in area to introduce new techniques including inventing the instruments to preform them more efficiently.

 

Dr. Reznik says...

When possible non operative treatments are always the best, yet when surgery is required we favor the least invasive, lowest risk alternatives when possible.
