Dr. Chrostowski was arrogant and did not make sense with his verbal report after examining my hip. He was unable to answer questions. I'm a medical professional. Shocking appointment!

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!
