Patient Reviews (5)
He just performed a DaVinci hysterectomy for me. Explained everything in detail prior to surgery. Preop (and first) appointment was very thorough. My prior doctor told me I was only a candidate for a full 'old fashioned' hysterectomy which has double the recovery time. Dr. Szela proved him wrong! One week out and I'm doing as well as expected.

After having a biopsy, Dr. Szela walked in the room to meet with my husband and I to discuss results. He sat with his back to us the entire time. He didn't acknowledge either of us upon entering the room and told me my biopsy results were negative. While this was great news, this should have been a phone call to me several days earlier when the results were in. This waiting caused undo worry for a week. He clearly just wanted to get the money for the visit. Beware!!!

I hope he is not the doctor on-call during my delivery. My first appointment him was at 35 weeks pregnant (for 5 minutes) and he suggested a c-section after less than a minute of talking to me. He seemed very uncomfortable, did not ask me any questions and when he saw my hesitation regarding a c-section (considering none of the other doctors had mentioned one), he said, that I shouldn't risk the chance that a natural delivery could result in death. Who says that!? Horrible experience with him

Dr. Szela was unfriendly, arrogant and dismissive.He barely made eye contact with me.The new patient form had no medical history questions.He had no info on me at all,and he never asked me any questions about my history.My appt was to establish myself as a new patient, annual exam & discuss my current issues w/ endometriosis.He treated me like I was a narcotic seeking junkie, despite the fact that I never even brought up medication.In fact,I barely spoke.He was rude and offensive.I left in tears

I would not under any circumstances recommend Dr. Erwin Szela to anyone. He immediately opted for surgery instead of running proper tests or trying to diagnose the problem.
