What People Say About Dr. Christopher Pankiw, MD
Recent
Reply
Dr. Pankiw displays genuine concern for his patients with an attitude that is friendly and caring. Unlike some doctors, who think the patient should just accept their instructions without question, Dr. Pankiw takes the time to educate you on your illness and makes you a part of the decision making process. He explains the pros and cons of each treatment option and this really helps with patient buy-in of the treatment plan chosen. I have seen another doctor in the group and honestly wouldn't take my dog there for treatment; the difference between him and Dr. Pankiw is that stark and we are lucky to have him in our area. Anyone in need of his service could not make a better choice in doctors. And his staff is every bit as friendly and professional as he is. Any time I have trouble with my hand you can be sure Dr. Pankiw will be the doctor I go to.

He has performed 3 surgeries on my hands. He will do a 4th in about 6 months, I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and each operation has taken away a lot of my pain. One has taken away all of my pain in my left hand/wrist. I trust them so much when my wife hurt her knee I sent her here. That is trust! Thanks Doc, you are making my life easier to live.
