Patient Comments (7)
in Round Rock, TX |
Dr. Szerlip's bedside manner is just as excellent as his surgical skills. Highly recommend him!
Pflugerville, TX |
A rare experience. He has a dry wit and respects his patients' intelligence enough to use it. Oh, and he's also a great physician.
Dr Szerlip is the best! He came highly recommended after I had become disillusioned with my orthopedist in Dallas I had been seeing for 3 years. He discussed options with me, and together we decided that reverse shoulder replacement was the right thing for me. I can't emphasize enough how well the surgery and subsequent PT went. I never had a moment of pain after my surgery, and the follow up after I returned home was amazing. If I could give him ten stars, I would! Thank you, Dr. Szerlip.
in Georgetown |
I am almost a year from surgery and cannot thank Dr. Szerlip enough for my new shoulder. It is amazing. And for those who don't like scars, mine is hardly noticeable. No pain, great movement and when the other one needs it, he's the doctor of choice.
in Taylor, TX |
Excellent surgeon who made sure I knew exactly what was wrong in my shoulder and went through all the options. He never rushed us to make a decision and was very good at answering questions. Would recommend him to anyone with shoulder issues.
in Pflugerville, TX |
Dr Szerlip replaced my right shoulder and the outcome has been great!! He is highly skilled, competent and has your best interest in mind before, during and after surgery. I'm very happy to have chosen him as my surgeon and would recommend him to someone looking for a shoulder guy!
Good doctor, terrible medical assistant (Natalie), so overall my experience has been a series of missteps and inconveniences and it takes way too long to get a call back to get appropriate referrals and authorizations.
