Dr. James R. Piorkowski is awesome surgeon. The reconstruction he has done on my thumb in a few months is incredible. He really cares and is very personable. Takes the time to explain every procedure and the expected results. Takes pride in his work.

I saw Dr. Piorkowski with regard to a knife pain in my right forearm and numbness and pain in both hands. He was able to treat me for the knife pain and I no longer have it. As to the numbness and pain in my hands, he gave me a cortisone shot in the hands and it corrected the pain. The numbness appears to be from my neck surgery and may get better is a year. I am very happy having him and my doctor and will recommend him to all my friends.

I cannot say enough about this Dr.. I was treated with what can only be called special care by Dr. P. and his nurses and staff. I felt their concern for my problem and realized commendable treatment from the first visit through the completion of my treatment. The feeling of concern and caring by a medical professional is such an important component of overall healing. Thank you so much for such superior care.

I had a compressed nerve in my right arm that had been misdiagnosed and mistreated by another physician for almost a year. I came to Dr. Piorkowski for help and he was amazing. I felt heard for the first time in a long time. He was very personable and approachable. He explained everything perfectly. The surgery was a success, instant pain relief. Dr. Piorkowski gave me back a big part of my life back. I can cook again!

I had a partial amputation of the long finger over the summer of 18’. I met Dr. Piorkowski for the first appointment he was clean cut and presented himself well. He explained to me the parts of the finger that had been damaged and the nerves that would be effected forever. He had drawn me a sketch of what parts of my finger he had to remove and explained why. At the end of the first visit I knew I was in good hands and felt very comfortable he was going to do an amazing job and that he did ty!
