A really bad doctor. Misdiagnosed my wife who had early onset Alzheimer's that he diagnosed as seizures. Sits at his computer and typed while he talks to his patient and family. We left his care to go to rush memory care.

Wlodarek was the assigned consulting neurologist while my spouse was in a coma at Resurrection Hospital. He was a jerk and and gave us no hope in my husband's condition improving or reversing. Heard him actually tell the nurse my husband was "toast". The critical care physician told us he believed otherwise and to continue treatment. Husband is currently recovering nicely and has returned to his "brainy" job as of March 10th, 2017. Wlodarek couldn't have been more wrong or more awful than he was

Dr Wlodarek was called to do a neuro consult on my husband after complications from a staph infection which landed him in a coma. Aside from being arrogant, rude and having zero people skills, after his consult he told me to find a nursing home for my husband saying would probably not regain consciousness. After being questioned by myself and my daughter, he dismissed us, calling us family with no objectivity. We and the ICU nurse were appalled. He woke up several days later and is fine now.
This guy is a pompous conceded joke who thinks because he has MD after his name he is above everyone else. He is rude, arrogant, un-compassionate and doesn't have a clue how to deal with people. I honestly don't know how he ever became a doctor. It's scary to think that people actually trust this guy. He is basically "assigned" to people when they're in the hospital, and most people probably don't know his history and background. He was AWFUL and I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!

This guy is a joke! I saw him about pain in my spine with numbness. He was a referral from my doctor. There was a possibility it was related to MS. I saw Wlodarek who made me wait an hour after my scheduled time and all he did was type on the computer. He then requested for me to get an MRI. Three weeks passed and several phone calls made by my to his office and he still didn't call for the RQI number. Finally I had enough and told him I would see another doctor! Very very unprofessional!
