in Burbank, CA |
Dr. Korchek is a very knowledgeable and approachable doctor. He and his office staff are a class act all around. He has always been straightforward with me and he will not let me leave his office until I understand what his prognosis is and directives are going forward. He cares about your well-being and the progress preoperative and post-operative. He truly cares and wants you "back on your feet",or whatever ails/ailed you, as soon as medically possible. He truly wants the best for you.

Dr. Korchek is totally professional. He takes all the necessary time to explain options, and surgery is a last resort. I had been suffering for a couple of decades with knee pain, and ultimately surgery was my only option having exhausted all others. Immediately following a total knee replacement surgery, there was no more pain, and I was off pain medications within two days. Following my discharge, Dr Korchek personally called me to seehow I was progressing, He has my HIGHEST recommendation.

I highly reccomend Dr. Korchek. I had an total Achilles rupture and when I went to see Dr. Korchek it had been a little over a moth since I sought care. He didn't take long to diagnose me and kept pressing for me to remember my exact date of injury because it was import to the repair. He was very informative and patient with me. Overall I'm complete comfortable with Dr. Korchek so if your are looking at reviews for an orthopedic surgeon in Glendale or Burbank stop in I'm confident he can help.

I completely detached my rotator Cuff. Dr Korchek did a fantastic job on the surgury. I was back to normal use in 7 weeks with no pain and complete flexability!!!! Just no heavy lifting yet. So at 68 years old- I couldn't be happier!!!!

We experienced the services of Dr. Korchek thru my mother who was her patient for many years. He has been treating her knee. Recently, Dr. Korchek made a knew replacement surgery on my mother's leg. The surgery was very successful and mother is recovering really soon. She is doing therapy and slowly walking after 4 weeks of the date of the surgery. I like his professionalism and respect his experience.

He was one of the nicest doctors I have ever gone to. He took his time to explain the procedure . After the surgery he made sure I was ok and now I am pain free and recovering.
