Staff is incompetent, Dr. Podolsky is in it for the money. The waiting room probably hasn't been cleaned in years.

After more than 8 mos. of foot pain, and after a laminectomy this dr. performed a year and 6 mos. ago, my husband is receiving laser and stem cell treatments for the extreme pain he has suffered. He was shown by this new dr. that the surgery wasn't successful as we were assured of by Dr. Podulsky.. There are nerves that are pinched as a result of the surgery. All this dr. prescribed were heavy pain meds. NO, we will not recommend Dr. Podulsky.

Dr. Podolsky replaced my wife's knee several years ago. She has an excellent result. Dr Podolsky also trained at The Mayo Clinic which is the difficult residency in the country to get into. He is A+++.

In 2016 Dr. Podolsky performed hip joint replacement surgery on both of my hips, four months apart. Since my recovery, my pain is gone, I no longer need to take narcotics. Previously, I had been referred to a few other orthopedic surgeons and was told that due to previous surgeries performed when I was a child, they could not perform the procedure. I was then directed to Dr. Podolsky. His skill and knowledge improved my daily life. Thank You, Dr. Podolsky, Chris and Maria, Anita Welock
