Patient Comments (2)
in San Francisco, CA |
He is the worst Orth dr I have never met. He does not answer questions and or provide care after my knee replacement with him.
in San Francisco, CA |
It has been exactly 6 weeks since my THR. My advice is to do your research in advance to the extent you can so that you come armed with questions. In my case, he recommended a second opinion doctor and was timely in answering my emails, once with a phone call. Perhaps it?s the patient, and certainly the doctor plays a pivotal role, but my recovery has very smooth. I was prepared for the worst.At my post-surgical visit with Dr. Janku yesterday,he said my recovery was ?well ahead of the curve.?
