I was debating myself to leave 1 or 2 stars for Dr. Fronek. The whole appointment lasted less than 5 minutes from the time he walked into the room. He asked a couple of questions, touched the joint a couple of times, and already telling me his premature diagnosis. And then, he realized he forgot to look at the scans. So he looked at the scans for literally 3 seconds, after which mumbled that I need more scans. A terrible doctor. He should be ashamed of himself. Not recommended him at all.

Jan fronek is a nice enough surgeon and polite (great bedside manners) and works in a great office where everyone is attentive and responsive. My ACL reconstruction was a complete fail from fronek. 2013 I did my second knee surgery and he was confident and reassuring it wouldn't have the same laxity issues ...... Wrong!!! Same issue immediately. He seemed confident before the opp, than same rehab probs and he states numerous times I don't know. Now I'm looking for another surgeon for the ACL
