He did surgery on my left wrist last year and I can’t even tell I broke it other than for having a small scar. I do everything I did before I broke it.

Dr. Rehak performed three surgical procedures on my right arm during the same surgery. These included a Ulnar nerve release at the elbow, Medial nerve/Carpal Tunnel release in the wristand release of a trigger finger tendon on the ring finger. The entire experience from initial office visit, through surgery and the two week post surgery visit were professional and very successful. I obtained immediate relieve from my fingers and hand going numb and hurting, and recovery following surgery has been much faster than expected.

Dr Rehak did my carpel tunnel surgery and my only regret is that I did not have it done sooner...he is a man of few words but is very professional and will be up front and honest with you about what to expect...I had a wonderful experience with him.

Went in for trigger finger release. Dr. David Rehak is top notch in his field. My trigger finger was dealing me fits. I went to see Dr. Rehak, he suggested we repair this finger asap. Apointment for surgery was without a doubt a great experience, he and his staff in surgery and clinic are GREAT, COURTEOUS, AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. He and his staff are well trained and know their stuff. Will see him again 100% if the needs ever arises.

After I severely lacerated my little finger (severing tendons and laid it open requiring more than 18 stiches to sew it up in the emergency room). The damage was done on Saturday June 8. The emergency room made an appointment for me on Monday June 10 with Dr.. Rehak. On Tuesday June 11 Dr. Rehak surgically repaired my finger. For the next 12 weeks Dr. Rehak monitored and directed efforts in company with Rehab personnel until I was released on September 13. Throughout the process Dr. Rehak instructed me in the proper care and in the delicate healing process of tendons. As a result I now have full recovery of all functions of the finger. If you could see the damage you would understand the extent of my admiration for Dr. Rehak's skill and professionalism. Additionally Dr. Rehak has early morning surgery and office appointments and the office personnel are fast and extremely courteous and efficient.

Dr. Rehak performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands within 3 weeks of each other. He was professional, to the point, honest, valued my opinion and input, and explained everything about my condition and the procedure. I definitely recommend Dr. Rehak and Hughston Clinic.

I have trigger finger surgery and the procedure was done in an excellent manner and the end result was perfect. A few years ago. Dr. Rehal did ulnar nerve release, and this was likewise extremely successful. He is a first-class physcian and surgeon in every way, and I heartily recommend him.

I recently had carpal tunnel surgery at the Hughston Clinic in Columbus, GA. Dr. David Rehak was my Surgeon and he was excellent. He and his Staff were very caring, open to all my questions, and gave detailed information about my surgery and aftercare. His Surgery Team was top notched, ran a seamless operation. I didn't even know when they numbed my hand. I highly recommend Dr. Rehak.

I had a great experience and it was my first visit. I had asked several doctor friends who was the best hand man around and each said Dr. Rehak. He was calming, direct and had a plan for me. This was what I had hoped for and this is what I received. I highly recommend Dr. Rehak and his staff was very professional. Thanks, Hersey ( Gatling ) Sumner Jr.
