Bedside manner may not be Dr Welby.. he's a surgeon. I was cutting grass ( not on a rider) 5 weeks after a total hip! To me, that's what really counts. 3 months out and I rarely think about the whole deal. Not too shabby.

Dr Szalapski stepmother in November 2016 for a fractured right hip. He performed a partial hip replacement. despite the advanced years and compromised health of the patient, she made a full recovery and is functioning well with her new hip. Dr Szalapski was attentive and supportive, providing excellent care. He was patient in addressing your questions and fears and quickly won over her confidence. so glad to have him in our corner.

Dr Szalapski, is a terrible communicator. In fact, when he delivered the news to me that I would need a hip replacement he said that "we have learned that it is best to do both at once." I was in shock. I thought he meant both hips! (he meant hip and ball of femur) He is brash, uninterested in you once you are off the table (eg. discharged with refusal to send me to rehab and no home care plan. ) Yet he is a good surgeon. maybe an excellent one. 1st followup: he spent 3o min with me!!!??
