I would highly recommend Dr. Michael to any patient who is seeking positive results. After a knee injury (and seeing another physician for care ~ with less than favorable outlook) I was able to see Dr. Kucharzyk who was very thorough and I informative. I have never met such a compassionate and caring physician. After an in-depth assessment and plenty of patient education ~ I felt and knew I was on the right hands. After my surgery ~ I have never felt better. It's all due to a great physician.

My Daughter has a condition that isn't something you see everyday. We were referred to this Dr. by our pediatrician so we thought we could trust him. We asked how many patients hes ever treated with her condition and he stated a number that was completely unbelievable and when he saw our faces that we knew that was untrue he stuttered and tried to correct himself. I lost all trust in him right there. When a doctor lies about a simple question what else would he lie about.

I had back surgery from a Dr that didn't go well, leaving me in pain for 6 months. I found Dr Kucharzyk and within a week surgery was set up & I was feeling so relieved that everything would eventually be ok. Thank god, I found him because I thought I was going to use a cane for the rest of my life! That cane was gone the day after surgery!

He was excellent with all my injuries from broken wrists to partially torn rotator cuff to painful injuries sustained in a car accident. He is realistic about the situation, treatment and recovery. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

It has two years since my spinal fusion and it has been a complete failure. My pain has never been worse and the weakness in my back and legs is debilitating. I feel I was rushed into the surgery and not informed about the possible long term effects. Never, never, never have spinal fusion surgery unless there is no other option and if you do have it get out of Hooterville and go to a Mayo type of facility. Horrible outcome!
