I think if the dr has someone shadowing them they should first ask the patient if that’s ok and most importantly introduce them. It’s rude not to do this

Great Physician!
I will admit I had an awful experience at Excel which has left me with even worse pain and stiffness by a Surgeon there pushing an unnecessary surgery who is no longer practicing at Excel. I was very apprehensive on returning as a referral from my PCP for another injury to another joint. I am glad I gave the practice a second chance. This time, I see Dr. Czarnecki. He is everything that other surgeon was not. Caring, professional, knowledgeable, attentive, skillful and unlike the former surgeon has not pushed a surgery on me from the get go. I am healing wonderfully since my treatment plan includes a conservative approach. I cannot say enough good things about him and the practice as a whole.

Dr. Czarnecki is a great surgeon and always takes the time to explain things and answer my questions. The practice is large and well-run. He’s now taken care of me through two major knee issues and I felt the care I received was excellent and compassionate. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and the Excel team.

Dr. Czarnecki is a very friendly and knowledgeable doctor who not only explains everything to his patients but he listens to them as well. He is very thorough and concise while being thoughtful of your needs. I did not hesitate to bring a member of my family in to see him when they suffered a recent injury that required the expertise of an orthopedist.
