This is my second visit to see on this visit I get to choose between him and another Doctor at another place and i chosen him that should tell you a lot

It has been THREE MONTHS FOUR days since the surgery to repair my Labrum, bicep and Rotator cuff tear. I would like to thank Doctor Ropiak for the great surgeon that he simply is. I'm finally, without restriction able to raise my left arm. It all comes with great therapy from Kessler Rehabilitation Center and a Amazing surgeon. Thanks doctor!
in Avenel, NJ |
Very professional, knowledgeable, respectful with his patients. I had a second surgery with him (bicep tenodesis surgery) it went well recovery time was three months of physical therapy. He allowed me time for physical therapy prior to the surgery as a precautionary measure, and a 2nd opinion prior to the surgery. The doctor was very patient with me regarding my post surgery recovery allowing me extra time to recover until I felt comfortable when returning to work. Will recommend to others.

Unfortunately, Dr. Ropiak and his staff are fleecing patients by providing them incorrect information. I had categorically asked while making the appointment if Dr. Ropiak was a pediatric orthopedic, I was taking the appointment for a 3 year old. The Dr spent less than 1 minute with us, referred us to a pediatric orthopedic and then billed us $350. When I complained why were we told that he was a pediatric orthopedic, I was told that the Dr. still gave us consultation, what a scam!!!
