Today I met with Dr. Szura for my knee discomfort. I've never been to Cary Orthopaedic before but even from the initial conversation with Jason over the phone everyone was very nice, extremely professional. This doesn't seem to be the norm in most medical offices. When I arrived they got me right in and explained along the way the next steps. The complete staff was very polite and made a point to say "Have a good Day". Dr. Szura was recommended to me by my wife because 2 years ago she had a frozen shoulder, one doctor wanted to operate but Dr. Szura said she just needed 6 months of physical therapy. Now that's ethics! I've found with some doctors they don't have much of a bedside manner or they don't come across as being genuine. Dr. Szura was easy to talk too, he gave me options and flat out very ethical in his practice. I would definitely recommend Dr. Szura to others. This is a guy that truly enjoys what he does but more so in helping others!

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.

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
