My shoulder had been bothering me for years and I could not get relief. Then I went to Dr. Choueka and he did a quick procedure and I was back in the gym in a week and have been pain free for about a year. He is an amazing physician and really listened to my complaints to zero in on the problem. Would recommend him to anyone with an orthopedic problem!

Amazing Dr did wonders with my shoulder

Dr. Jack Choueka is a highly skilled surgeon. I had a 4 hour extensive reverse shoulder replacement performed by Dr. Choueka. After 6 weeks of following every direction and working extremely hard, I am healing and progressing at a phenomenal rate. Dr. Choueka's talents, knowledge and professionalism has no peer. Dr. Choueka along with his staff, especially Dr. Nishant Sunga are caring and concerned health professionals taking the time to provide a reassuring and encouraging recovery.

Dr. Jack Choueka did a fantastic job fixing my broken elbow. Because he delegates everything that he doesn't *have* to do himself to other physicians, PAs, nurses and radiologists, he can spend more quality time with the patient, who doesn't have to wait 3-4 hours for a hurried consult. He was very approachable and explained things until I understood. Also sent me to a wonderful PT, Michael Argiro, who worked wonders. Elbow is better than ever. Thank you for your magic hands!

I have had 3 surgeries with Dr Choueka and must say he is fantastic. I have referred him to my family and friends and they were very pleased with his services as well as the staff.

Mr. Choueka analyzed my problem immediately -- a trigger finger. He initially tried to heal it with a needle -- which, unfortunately didn't help. As a result, an operation was scheduled and that operation went smoothly and easily, thanks to Dr. Choueka and his wonderful staff. Amazing! My finger is perfect now.

i first went to see Dr. J. Choueka for a frozen shoulder. Three weeks later I broke my humerus bone. Went to see Dr. Choueka. He treated me beautifully, listened to all my concerns, addressed my issues with pain, did everything he could to help in the healing process included ordering a bone stimulator to speed up bone healing. Yes the wait is sometimes just a bit long, but it is worth it. His professionalism and caring staff made this rather painful experience in life much easier to bear. .
