Dr. Koscielniak is the most caring Dr. I have ever met. he replaced my knee a few years ago and recently repaired my shoulder. he has personally called to check on me while recovering at home ( which most Dr.'s just don't do).Your care is his top priority.The staff at his office is amazing as well, they will bend over backwards to help you with everything including work forms, related charges etc. If you're reading these reviews in search of a Great Ortho Dr.,go see Dr. K, you won't be disappointed.

An urgent care unit recommended that I visit an Orthopedic if it does not get better after 2 weeks. It took me a week to get an appointment. Dr. Koscielniak shows care, listens and certainly takes enough to understand the injury and complaints. I had one follow up visit. He did not only apply the cast, but also ensured that my thumb had room to move. I appreciated the extra attention to that. His staff is nice, polite, and professional, and keeps their promises regarding any follow-up.

Dr. is extremely knowledgeable, confident and self assured making it easy to believe and trust him. My knee was very messed up from yrs. of abuse. He stated that he could repair as long as I was willing to do the rehab to make it strong.
