What People Say About Dr. John Stelmach, MD
Reply Flag
I put off knee replacement surgery for years due to extreme fear. When I finally scheduled a consultation with Dr. Stelmach I felt at ease the minute he walked into the room. He has a wonderful demeanor and talks to you in a very comforting way. Calmly told me that I really needed to do this-without being pushy. While going through therapy it became apparent that my second knee needed to be done sooner rather than later. I didn’t even hesitate setting up the second surgery for two months later.
