Dr. Choueka is amazing. His office staff was wonderful. Dr. Choueka saw me right away and immediately identified a serious injury to my finger that I had not believed was so severe. He quickly tended to the injury and kept me calm throughout the entire procedure. I would would wholeheartedly recommend anyone with a hand injury to see Dr. Choueka.

I was referred to Dr Choueka and had to travel to see him. Well worth the trip! He gave me a very complete examination of my shoulder pain and then suggested a great course of action. He treated the problem aggressively and was very thoughtful about my options. He even called my radiologist to discuss the problem. Don’t see anyone else for shoulder pain!

Dr choueka went above and beyond in his care of my mom this past week . My family and I have been his patients for over 15 years and no matter what we went to him for for - (shoulder wrist elbow) he was kind and sensitive and right on point with the care we needed. Recently my mom needed emergency spinal surgery and dr choueka was right there with us - helping us, directing and working alongside dr saleh and Razi from his team at Maimonides hospital when had to perform emergency surgery.

How do you thank a doctor for his surgical talents, his expertise, his intuitiveness and his tremendously capable skills of decision making that are so impressive and so unique that he truly stands above all others? Dr. Jack Choueka will never realize the depth that my heartfelt thank you has reached. One may think that these accolades are too good to be true, but these thoughts don’t come close to the actual depth of my appreciation. Dr. Choueka, I value every moment that you are my Doctor!!!

Dr. Choueka, and his entire staff, are professional, courteous, and efficient. I've had three surgeries with Dr. Choueka and in each case he, and his staff, made a stressful situation an easy, comfortable experience. They are thorough in their explanations and extremely patient and caring about your concerns. The care and concern they exhibit before and during surgery continues with follow-up treatment. Dr. Choueka is a model for what healthcare should be.

Dr. CHOUEKA has been my orthopedic surgeon for many years. He is by far the most competent, professional, compassionate physician in this specialty . His surgical techniques , his post op care, and physical therapy referrals are superior. I am a health care professional for over 40 years. I'm quite savvy to a physician's excellent practice. Dr. CHOUEKA is the only physician I trust and would recommend to my colleagues. They too share my opinion. Respectfully, Lou Ellen Kalb RN , BS

The best caring, accommodating and compassionate Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of going to !! Dr. Choueka is brilliant and his bedside manner along with his professionalism has eased a very painful condition for me. He is so caring and wouldn't let me leave his office with so much pain and hooked me up with a nerve block- he fit me in his busy schedule over night, and I am so grateful ! The best there ever is!
