Patient Comments (7)
State College, PA |
Absolutely the worst experience. Saw him in office, then right before surgery. He didn't have the courtesy to see me after surgery nor for a follow up visit. Guess he thought PA was good enough, it was a joke. As another reviewer mentioned, I also have scar tissue which is worse than what my finger originally looked like. Have to wonder who did the suturing. After surgery a patient should be able to discuss the surgery and what to expect with the doctor, not a PA. Go to someone else!
University Park, PA |
I had surgery by Dr. Lincoski. He was very curt and arrogant. He told me that not being able to move my finger that had pins going across the joint was all in my head. Later he said oh yeah that is scar tissue on your finger. I can do another surgery to fix that. No way!! He was not pleased. I would not recommend him and another doctor even said she did not like him and would not go there again! He is out of touch with patients.

I had two visits with Dr. Lincoski and both were very positive in all aspects. I trusted his assessment of my needs and his recommendations.
in Hollidaysburg pa |
Dr Lincoski is the greatest and sweetest and caring doc I have ever met
Williamsburg, PA |
Dr. Lincoski -The first time I met him - the office visit was very brief, treated me as if my case wasn't important to him...He told me when my surgery would be - and that I would see him in 30 days afterward. I didn't see him-it was his PA that saw me... I understand, this is his usual way of doing things...I wouldn't recommend him...If I ever need a surgeon again... I will go to somebody else.
Clymer, Pa |
He maybe spent 5 minutes in my room for each visit and kept changing my diagnosis. I found him to be unfriendly and stuck up. I will never recommend him to anyone.
in State College, PA |
If there is another hand surgeon, I will recommend the other. he is not friendly at all.
