I had Dr. Kwasnica in 2004 after a major motorcycle accident. She was excellent in guiding my rehabilitation as both in-patient & out-patient. If not for her, I would not be as progressed in my abilities as I am. Thank You Doc, Diane Plunkett

Dr. Kwasnica is the worst Doctor in town. Let's start by stating that a Physiatrist doesn't do anything. I've never heard of that. It's not like she's saving lives (I.e. surgeon, cardiologist). I've met her a couple of times and she let's her emotions get the best of her in her line of profession. Since I've last seen her she's had so many office staff leave in the last 3 to 4 years. Her office retention rate speaks poorly about her. I would not recommend her to anyone!
