I don't know why Dr. Dounchis' office schedules patients for a 7:30 AM appointment, when he doesn't even arrive until 8:00.

Dr. Dounchis spends very little time in diagnosing or explanation. He recommended minor arthroscopic knee surgery to "take a look and clean things up" but he removed 2/3 of my cartilage. He did not explain the risks. After the surgery he told me I would need a knee replacement in the next 2-5 years. I had only occasional knee discomfort prior to surgery but I am now in constant pain and cannot participate in the activities I used to enjoy. I have considered filing a malpractice suit.

Absolutely the worst care I've ever received. I've seen many orthopedics as well as worked as a medical assistant and scribe for one for 8 months, so let me tell you this guy is the worst of the worst. His bedside manner is non-existent. Didn't interact with me at all during my physical exam, didn't explain my injury, didn't explain what my physical limitations should be, didn't explain my x-rays, only ordered an MRI at my request, didn't ask if I had any questions, and rushed out immediately.

Terrible wait time for appointments and surgery. No one ever answers the phone in the office and you can wait forever for a call back. In terrible pain waiting for knee replacement and was told I would have to wait almost three and a half months for surgery. Asked for medical records to help find another doctor who could do surgery sooner but never received them or even a call back from the person who was suppose to provide them. Sad to say a terrible experience all in all. Very poor service.

I highly recommend Dr Dounchis, he replaced my hip. He was extremely friendly, polite and informative. He kept me informed every step of the way, he uses the latest technology which means recovery is faster. I was walking without a stick 3 weeks after my surgery, with very few restrictions on movement. Many of the nurses and staff that I met during my hospital stay, said I was lucky to have Dr Dounchis as he has a reputation as a really good surgeon. I would use him again.

Had a knee TKR that did not go well, unable to bend and extend from day one after. The nice guy disappeared immediately. He was worried about a law suit and made up negative, untrue facts to write in his reports that would substantiate a nonparticipation in my own rehabilitation. A form of bullying to be sure! I was in PA for one year after his surgery and still never gained back my range of motion. As long as all goes well, he could be considered a good surgeon, but watch his charges!

I had a total hip replacement on 3/10/16 it has been 5 weeks and my recovery has been great. Not only I feel he is an excellent surgeon, you are able to communicate with him on a regular level and he shows compassion. Perry D.

If I could give a zero star rating I would. Like others, I found him to be difficult to get information from and he was too quick to want to do surgery on my shoulder. Gave me a shot in the shoulder and left the room even though I told him I was dizzy. Went north to NY Hospital for Special Surgery because I was in so much pain (shot did nothing) and was told I had a frozen shoulder. Tried to get copies of my X-rays, told it would be $60 and would take a week or so. Zero rating for this dr.

After his assistant and xray tech saw me he came in said my hip/knee/ankle pain was coming from my back and that I needed an MRI and an epidural. As he was leaving without asking me any questions or examining me I asked about my knee. He sat down lifted my leg and said we would also get an MRI of my knee. His office never returned my call when the doctor he recommended for the epidural didn't belong to BCBS. They won't release my x-rays, will only make copies for $70. What a joke!
