I'm glad I didn't see these ratings before my surgery. Dr. Hruska repaired my broken hip/femur last October. He is not the most personable guy, but he did a great job surgically - and that's definitely the most important thing to me.

Acted as a second opinion for a surgeon in his office. He advised that I didn't have a problem with my arm.Today I came home from the hospital after another surgery by a different surgeon on the same arm that there was nothing wrong with

I had to give him at least one star cause its required. Dr. Hruska did a total knee replacement on me on 12/3 or 5/13. I had pain & problems 6 months later. After arguing for 4 months got to see him & I'm allergic to nickel so need another replacement. I need a different doctor cause this man left me without pain meds after surgery for 36 hours. I have no trust in him to do a doctor who doesn't care. I'm still I. Pain until I can find someone I trust.

I always select a physician by their education and certifications. I'm glad I was not deterred by reviews that seemed to be more personality directed as opposed to medical ability. Dr Hruska is excellent on all counts. Smart, knowledgeable, and charming! He recommended a conservative approach to resolving my problem, which I always appreciate.

Waited over one hour to see him. Didn't tell me what he thought was wrong until I ask him. MRI staff rude. Switched doctors but couldn't get them to forward MRI to new doctor. Don't go to these people.. Notified ETNA iof poor care by staff snd head nurse.
