Patient Comments (19)
in Cuthbert, GA |
I broke both bones in my arm near the elbow. Dr. Rehak performed the surgery to repair. I now have a full range of motion in the elbow. Could not be more pleased. Would definitely recommend Dr. Rehak.
Dr Rehak treated me for a broken wrist. I broke it on a Saturday and he saw me first thing on Monday morning. He had already reviewed my x-rays from the ER and had me scheduled for surgery the next morning. He put a plate in and my wrist is as good as new. I highly recommend Dr Rehak and his staff. In fact I recommend Hughston Clinic. I would not go to another orthopedic practice in Columbus, GA.

Stockbridge, GA |
He was a very polite doctor that had great bed side manner. He was able to give me good information about the surgery before i went in and then gave good instructions on how i should take care of it after. he was willing to go out of his way and call me personally after to check on me and see how i was doing and if the medication he gave me for the pain was working well. All in all he was a fantastic doctor.
in Dothan, AL |

Not only is he a excellent surgeon, he walks us to the O..R. and speaks to us personally if we need him. I believe he truly cares about his patients..He is also very professional in everything he does..does jumprovide into surgery. Very pleased.
in Dothan, AL |
Was my first surgery ever dr. Rehak and his staff made me very relaxed and call about the fact I was in good hands. After the surgery dr. Rehak called me personally for up to 4 days to check and make sure I was okay and everything was going good. Can't think him or his staff enough. The best experience.
in Columbus, GA |
Dr. Rehak after having 2 Surgery's from Fort Benning Ga. on my Right wrist that was crushed by a Pit bull was able to do what the government surgeons were not able to do, he rebuilt part of my wrist and now I have full use of it, it has taken 12 years of hard work but his expertise I believe is what allowed me to have a full recovery.
in Eatonton, GA |
I got an appointment pretty quick, he scheduled the test needed to confirm his diagnosis and gave me the results the same day. We did the carpal tunnel surgery and I haven't had any problems since.

Dr. Rehak and his staff are very professional and knowledgeable. I always felt comfortable from the time I walked in the door until my last appointment. Everything was explained thoroughly and everything happened just as it was explained. NO SURPRISES!! I would recommend Dr. Rehak to anyone needing his services. I will use him again if needed.
in Carrollton, GA |
I had broken my arm 9 months before visiting him, it was not properly cared for. Dr. Rehak was not critical of the care, but amazed it had not been fixed properly. My son and daughter were with me on first visit. He included them in the explanation of what he would do, gave me a choice of having the surgery or continuing with my arm as was. Said we could go home, think about it and let him know. The explanation was so clear we did not need to think about it - we said go with it.
in Auburn, AL |
Dr. Rehak properly diagnosed and treated my trigger thumb. After a couple of injections to alleviate the pain, it was determined that I need to have surgery to correct the situation. The surgery was brief and recovery has gone well.
Columbus, GA |
I went to emergency with a broken wrist. I called Dr. Rehak's office the next morning at 8:30. They told me I could come in to see him at 10:00 that same morning. I found him to be Professional, knowledgeable, and considerate. He showed me the x-ray, explained what he saw, answered my questions and set up surgery. During follow up visits, he took the time to examine my wrist, evaluate progress, discuss his findings and answer my questions.
