This was my first visit with Dr. Charuk and I found him exceptionally thorough and attentive to my concerns. He explained his assessment of my problem and discussed options for treatment. I found him to be highly knowledgeable and experienced, and sympathetic to the pain problems in the elderly. I would gladly recommend him to my friends and acquaintances.

Gave my father an injection in the spine for pain. My dad said he could barely walk minutes after the injection. Charuk sent him home. Hours later ended up in the ER. He could not walk. After many weeks of hospital and rehab, he regained some. But still has big issues. My dad and family was terrorized. Never visited or called my dad. We learned that my father wasn’t even candidate for the procedure. Offered nothing to compensate my dad for his malpractice. Deserves no respect as a human being.

Unnecessary cervical epidural injection gone wrong leading to spinal headache confirmed by more prestigious spinal surgeon. Bed ridden 3 weeks. Not a bad guy, but not sure he is the one you want to see.

He was a great doctor which took the time out to figure out what was going on with my neck. He didn’t blame it on my weight like all the other doctors did and help relieve a lot of the pain that I did have.

Did "routine" injection in my grandfather's neck. Up until then he was able to do nearly all the things that you and I could do. He walked into this procedure, but was not able to walk out. To this day he can barely walk on his own. Doctor didn't even visit him in the ICU after he was the one who landed him there. Turned out he was NOT a candidate for this procedure, but doctor sold him on doing it anyways. He ruined my grandfather's life....beware of this man! Wish I could leave zero stars.

After seeing 4 doctors about lower back & leg pain & being told my only option was surgery, I heard about Dr. Charuk, he suggested an injection & physical therapy & to my surprise it worked!! I didn't have to rely on pain pills and I went about 8 months without any pain!! And I also lost some weight doing the physical therapy exercises so it was a win win! Also he makes you feel comfortable talking to him because he really listens, shows concern, & acts like a regular guy!!
