Patient Comments (9)
in Rossville, GA |
honest, blunt, highly skilled, and the only surgeon I would use if I ever need one for orthopedics again. he told me upfront that I may have a limp forever after shattering an ankle. but after he fixed me I am 100% again. thank you and God bless!
Chattanooga, TN |
I'm sure he is a qualified and skillful doctor. Problem is, after seeing him several times, it's my opinion that he is brusque, condescending, and completely devoid of any semblance of empathy (at least that was my experience - can't speak for anyone else). I don't think it has to do with his ivy-league education...I know several doctors with similar backgrounds who are wonderful with their patients. For this reason only, I have stopped going to him.
in Hixson, TN |
In my opinion this guy is a hack job that can't separate family life from work. Horrible bedside manner and manners. In a wheelchair now becuase he wouldn't believe I had CRPS until it was too late to reverse. If you need surgery go to Food city. Their butchers there are nice and accommodating.
in Rossville, GA |
Dr chrostowski is excellent he answered all my questions and totally explained my surgery to me while going over my ct. Hes the kind of Dr that tells you the truth he don't try and suger coat it and tell you what you want to hear and that is what I liked I broke my heel bone which is not a common bone to break ( mine was shattered ) had surgery two weeks ago I would refer him to any one that needs ortho he's great and his staff are super sweet and more than willing to help
in Chattanooga, TN |
He is a wonderful surgeon and truly cares that his patients have a good outcome. he has done surgery a lot of family members and thanks to him my husband can walk again !!!!
in Chattanooga, TN |
When I asked for pain medicine He said quote (I don't give pain medicine for broke bones.) Big rude and insensitive, with bad breath, Not Very people friendly. I Don't Recommend This Dr. to work on humans maybe livestock.
in Hixson, TN |
super friendly staff went out of their way to help me. I was able to get appointment next day doctor was wonderful and caring. Addressed all of my concerns and was very detailed. His office was able to do my xray onsite. I will definitely recommend to all my friends and family if in need of a great orthopedic surgeon.
in Ringgold, GA |
Dr. C calls it as he sees it. I appreciate his honesty and candor. Would I go back? In a New York minute!!
in Chattanooga, TN |
He completely repaired both of my ankles. 3 years later and I haven't had any problems. Highly recommended
