Dr. Makhni did an amazing job with my surgery. Him coaching me through pre and post surgery, put my mind at ease. He made me feel secure, that what was to come was going to be a long road and made sure I stayed on top of my healing process. His knowledge and him being through was all the more reason why I was happy with the surgery and my healing process. I also appreciated his friendly nature, he made me feel like I was one of his good friends.

Dr. Makhni, is an awesome Doctor. He listens to you throughly and he cares about how you feel. I had to have Right Shoulder Surgery after therapy didn't work out for me. He explained the procedure and about how much time it would take to recover. He assured me that everything would be alright. The surgery was successful and I am so happy with my results. I had a right torn rotator cuff tear and my shoulder froze locked up. Frozen Shoulder they call it. Thanks Again Dr. Makhni, for doing such a wonderful job. After following your instructions and finishing therapy I now have my full range of motion back and no pain.

The care and service I received from Dr. Makhni's office was exceptional. I had surgery on 3 torn hamstring muscles and the next day my pain was gone. The care from the hospital and his team were outstanding. Highly recommend Dr. Makhni.

I had horrible hip pain for approximately 16 months. I tried everything. Dr. Shehab, M.D. HFHS, my Sports Medicine Physician, referred me to Dr. Eric Makhni, M.D. at HFHS. Dr. Makhni added me into his clinic, scheduled me for surgery, and my hip pain is gone! I appreciated all of Dr. Makhni's TEAM! Dr. Makhni explained everything clearly before and after surgery. He gave me a folder with information that answered every one of my questions. He ordered my ice machine, hip brace, exercise machine, and post op supplies and had them delivered to my home BEFORE SURGERY. He called me several times after surgery and is available 24/7 by phone, email, text, etc. He is an exceptional Orthopedic Surgeon, a kind, caring, compassionate person and I highly recommend him. I trust him completely. I feel so energetic, am back to work as a Registered Nurse, and back to doing everything that I love to do. I truly am so grateful for Dr. Makhni's expertise. CK-G

I had left arm/shoulder pain and had tried physical therapy without success and tried a chiropractor who recommended Dr Makni. He did an xray and after a cortisone type shot my shoulder is completely better. This was over 6 months ago. I will be going in now to have my other shoulder fixed.

Dr. Makhni was great in pre-OP visits listening to my issues I was having after other surgeries and coming up with a solution to the problem. Surgery went smoothly. The staff was great. By the very next day I was moving my shoulder in ways I could not before surgery. I feel confident with pt and some work that I'll get back to where I need to be.

Terrible experience! I had an arthritic knee, a series of three injections of Supartz was suggested. The PA who at HFHS administered the first injection hurt me, he apparently must have injected the Supartz into the wrong area, I was hurting from the injection. I saw Dr. Makhni the following week for a second round of the injection. I declined it. I asked Dr. Makhni what happened, he said that in a low percentage of cases, patients will have an adverse reaction to the drug, He did not test for this assumption that he made. He did suggest making a followup appointment with another colleague. I decided to make an appointment to a more independent physician. I eventually needed to have a total knee replacement.

Dr. Makhni gave me a diagnosis for my cuff tear that was much different than my first orthopod who said I had no option but surgery, not even short-term pt. He was clear, patient, and understanding. I was happy I went to him for a second opinion.

I would ABSOLUTELY NOT recommend Dr. M. During the pre-op consult he was very positive, said I was in great shape, explained the meniscus repair, said he would take care of the small area of arthritis and anything else he saw during surgery. I would be back to golf in no time. Had surgery. One week later/first post-op he told me to go off of crutches. Bad advice. Some ups, more downs followed. He doesn't return phone calls, answer questions or listen during post-op appmts. He smiles and says 'you're fine.' I remain composed. (Fortunately HFH staff & ortho drs on call are great!) 3 months later at my final post-op I told Dr. M something is still wrong, I'm still struggling. His reply "It's the best it's going to be, take Aleve and deal with it." Really?!! That's it?!! Sad, upset, dismayed I went for a second opinion & new MRI- my meniscus is STILL TORN - he should have seen it, at least during surgery. Am scheduled with new Dr for second surgery. Horrible experience.

Dr. Makhni expeditiously exhausted every option before we moved forward with surgery. He explained everything that was going to happen, in detail and answered all our questions. After surgery, he clearly described to us the outcome and what to expect each step of recovery. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a sports injury concern.
