Dr. Stolarski is the BEST! He showed me my xrays of my hips - ( he replaced both last year, one in July and one in Oct.) and he explained what he saw, which was all good. I've had a wonderful result. They both feel like my natural hip and I was able to return to doubles tennis thanks to Dr. Stolarski.

No! Although I returned to him to acquire another hip, he turned me over to a new incoming doctor because I had heart “complications”last time & he didn’t want a possible blemish on his record! He’s good at cutting but he cut me off when I needed him most. Use another doctor! I felt so strongly about this I am leaving my name!

Dr. Stolarski was super friendly. He took his time explaining everything about the surgery and recovery time to me. He took his time answering all my questions I had and even asked if I had any more. He made me feel relaxed that he is very confident that he knows what he is doing.

I appreciated when Dr Stolarski arrived and spent 15 minutes with me, noting I am doing well; however I did not appreciate the 2 hour delay. Process should be in place to notify patients of significant delays. Easy with automatic phone systems.

Doctor Stolarski gave me my life back!!! He conducted a full right knee surgery on July 23rd & then a full left knee surgery on Sept 17th. I am so pleased to say that I am at 100% recovery. I am glad I took his advice & did one knee at a time because my recovery was so much easier. At the end of October we visited family & realized that I could easily navigate stairs again. I was amazed to see that I was able to walk a long distance in the two airports and return our rental car. Those are tasks that most people take for granted, but my knees had deteriorated to the point that it was extremely challenging for me. I am very fortunate to have had someone so talented & dedicated, perform knee replacement surgeries on me. After six months, I am back walking my dog on a nightly basis, back enjoying the beach and walking on sand again! I’m now looking forward to traveling. Dr. Stolarski is the best & I will never hesitate to recommend you to anyone that needs knee surgery!

Dr. Stolarski replaced my right hip seven years ago. Quick recovery, no problems. I was climbing a ladder and doing heavy landscape work within six weeks. Now my left hip is shot and I wouldn't have it fixed (May 5) by any other surgeon than Dr. Stolarski. He and James are a world-class team and I'm fortunate to have them do my surgery. Kennedy-White is a huge orthopedic practice and their docs are top-notch. Because they are so good they are very busy. Despite the fact that they do so much work for so many old people like me (74) I never feel like I'm lost in the shuffle. Dr. Stolarski and James are professional AND personable. My sister is having trouble with her hip replacement and I hope she can come from Baja California to have it fixed by them. I'd give them more stars but the system won't let me.
