What People Say About Dr. George Branovacki, MD

I've been seeing Dr. Branovacki for 6+ years now. He's straight forward, encouraging, supportive and explains data well. I am able to see him at either office. The staff are excellent at both sites. When my PCP's office refused to provide referrals for me (wanted to switch me to someone completely unknown to me, and in an area further away that I have ever gone for care), he and his staff helped me get through this until I could get my insurance to intercede and make the referrals that I needed. I have friends who are federal retirees. They praise him, and refer others to him due to the great care they receive.

I went to see Dr. Branovacki because my hips were hurting. My hips were fine. My records showed I had a total knee replacement 8 months prior. He asked to see my knee. Because of his expertise in this field of study he observed my knee swollen and suspected infection. He has been treating me for the infection and plan to give me a total reconstructed knee in 6 weeks. He's very personable and believes his patients should be well informed. The daily check-ins on Healthloop are very much welcomed.

I was referred to Dr. Branovacki by my regular Doctor after some meeting with a few other knee doctors. HIs referral turned out to be the best thing that could happen. I was immediately impressed and comfortable with Dr. Branovacki. He explained the process for the knee replacement and it was exactly what I was looking for. The care through the whole process was exemplary. I am extremely satisfied with the knee replacement and all the care provided by Dr. Branovacki and his staff.

I had two surgeries on the same knee and Dr. Branovacki did excellent work. Follow up was done in a timely manner. He helped me get some very expensive pain medication using a pharmacy coupon. His bedside manner is nice, and he took as much time as needed to answer all questions. I am alreferring my own patients to him if they have knee compliants. I have sent my wife and my mother in law as well to him. I am actually seeing him this week for my other no surgical knee for a consultation.

I am truly with my husbands office visit with Dr Branovacki. Everything was just perfect. Scheduling the appointment was nice and smooth and checking in and registering. We don’t speak a English so fill in out forms was a concern. The receptionist made us feel so comfortable they called a girl from the back and she did our papers for us and was so very nice about it. The nurses were great. The Doctor meet all of our expectations and more. We will be back and refer family.GREAT work guys!

Have been seeing Dr. Branovacki for several years now. He and his team have helped me with my knee. Recently had to have replacement done and it was successful. He is dedicated to his patients and their concerns. His team is also excellent. Have already recommended him to family and friends.

I saw dr Branovacki after 5 months of a unhealed injury- he did a total knee replacement, I saw him two days later. At 2 weeks I had stitches out, saw assistant. I had several bad issues, no call from him, Useless office. I missed a check up due to sciatica attack, no call back. Weaned myself off pain meds at 4 wks due to med issues. Went in at 9 weeks, still didn't see him but was told I'd need a 2nd surgery to bend. Refused! I Left on vacation 12 weeks post op -no second surgery 130' no rehab

Overall I was very pleased with acl surgery as well as the recovery time with Dr. Branovacki. I am very displeased however with the amount of time spent in his waiting rooms at each and every appointment. On average it was an hour before I was seen for a check up, I understand he is busy, he just doesn't appear to value his patients time.

Dr. B is very respectful and he takes the time to explain why you should or shouldn't receive surgery, and if you don't need the surgery at that time, he will assist you with determining when is the best time to come back to start scheduling and preparing for surgery
