I had a very disappointing experience with Dr. Szura. His attitude seemed way too casual, (almost aloof) , and when he spoke he looked at my husband, and not me- the patient! That seemed very condescending. Also, there were no written directions given. I found out more about proceeding after my ankle fracture by reading online, than by him or his PA. He did show me my X-ray and explained the fracture a bit, but overall, I would not recommend him.

Best darn doc in the Triangle! Fixed my shoulder and got me back to competitive tennis. He's an awesome guy, down to earth, and cares deeply about figuring out the issue. Love him! ??

Friendly staff. They were able to schedule us for an appointment the very next day when I called. We didn't have to wait long before we were taken back for our appointment. Dr. Szura was very patient, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient. We were very pleased with the overall visit.

My experience with Dr. Szura was awesome from the day I walked into his office. You see I was kind of a hard case, But Dr. Szura listened to what I was trying to say and he did everything he could to make me feel better even when I was scared he made me feel safe that he knew what he was doing. He is kind of my own Superman but in a since of a doctor. My shoulder after surgery feels amazing. I have almost full rotation after being 3 months out from surgery . Them team at Cary Orthopedic is just beautiful. If your bones hurt I recommend Cary Orthopedic

I have worked with Dr. Szura on the professional side and have been treated by him following an automobile accident. His care and outcomes are outstanding. I would recommend him to anyone needing medical care for a knee or shoulder!

I am giving a one star only because I have to. I went to this doctor for workers comp. The front desk staff are so unprofessional. They were so loud talking about personal things I felt anxiety and had to leave the waiting room. I waited for 2 hours to see this doctor. He came in and was extremely rude. He examined me and put me into severe pain. He left the door open and the staff stood in the hall staring at me. He is very dismissive & condescending. He offers everyone steroid shots. RUN!!!

I've been seeing Dr. Szura for a number of years. He just completed carpel tunnel release surgery on my left hand (he performed the same surgery 9 years ago on my right hand). I've been very satisfied both times. I don't have any issues with my right hand anymore and I can tell that my left hand is on the fast track to recovery. Dr. Szura has performed surgeries on my husband, my mother, father and brother. We have all had excellent outcomes. I highly recommend Dr. Szura.

This is the first knee surgery done by Dr. Szura and my fourth one on this knee. The surgery went far better than I expected and my recovery time was fairly quick. After explaining my symptoms and where I was experiencing the pain in my knee, Dr. Szura gave me a great explanation of (most likely) the problem. He also detailed the procedure to fix my knee. Post op, I am doing extremely well and am pleased with my progress!! I highly recommend Dr. Szura, he is among the very best - believe me!
