Excellent Doctor. Great pre-surgery exam and explanation of procedure. Surgery went well. Recovery and rehabilitation was thorough and comprehensive. Follow-up was good. I would recommend FVO for any Ortho issue.

Dr. Sostak preformed surgery on me less than a week ago. I was virtually pain free and could not have asked for a better surgeon! Had the same procedure done a few years back from another surgeon at Fox Valley Orthopedics with great results too but due to his obvious skill I am having a miraculous recovery and could not be happier!

Met Dr. Sostak after a referral from my ortho doctor and PA (also with Fox Valley Ortho) to discuss shoulder replacement surgery. Having been through several ortho surgeries over my 50 years, I came prepared with a large list of questions for him. Over 75% of my questions were answered before I had to ask them by either him or his nurse in just the first 15 minutes of reviewing MRI results and explaining the surgery. He was not afraid to get more technical when I asked for more info, and he and his nurse both presented an easy to follow timeline from start to finish. Looking forward to my replacement in a couple weeks!

Dr. Sostak was very professional and what I would call a miracle doctor. He always takes the time to explain his diagnosis and treatment options and answer all questions that I have. I cannot say enough great things about him.

I came to Dr. Sostak for a work related hip arthroscopy labrum repair. I was recommended by Dr. Petsche, and am glad I was. On top of excellent care, I was never made to feel less than, or like a burden because of the fact that they had to deal with worker's comp. His surgical team were kind, knowledgeable, and Dr. Sostak himself gave me and my family pictures from the arthroscopy that he'd written on to explain them. He checked in on me before I left the surgical center to make sure that I'd been taken care of and given any and all info and equipment that I needed to continue care at home. He made me feel comfortable and taken care of through the whole process, and I really can't recommend him enough. Fox Valley Ortho as a whole is incredible, but I have had the best experience with Dr. Sostak.

Doctor Sostak and associates are wonderful. He has operated on both my shoulders in the past two years and I have full movement in both. They all take great pride in the jobs they do. All are very accommodating with life's schedules. I tell everyone about their services and how happy I am with the results I achieved, I hope I don't need their services again, but I will definitely will be going back to them. Keith always returns calls promptly.

Very poor experience. While speaking to me and my daughter, he continually referred to the wrong part of the body that was injured. He was not focused on her or her injury whatsoever. He asked 3 times what sport she played and how the injury occurred, yet he still got the sport and mechanism of injury wrong in his notes. He was arrogant and brushed off our concerns, and had zero interest in her as a patient or an athlete. I will never return there and do not recommend him whatsoever.

Dr. Sostak was great. He listened to my situations, and gave me good options to proceed how I wanted. I delay'd the surgery for awhile, and then later had the surgery and wow, the recovery for me was simple. Once again he listened to my situation and didn't push things that weren't needed and 5 weeks later I'm good as new. I'd recommend him to anyone with knee issues.

Dr. Sostak spent time with me, I never felt like we were rushed or I was just one of many patients he was seeing. He explained everything in terms that I could understand. He understood what my goals were and he made them his goals. And it was the first surgery I ever had where there was NO post surgical pain! Not sure if it was the nature of the procedure or his expertise!
