Tulsa, OK |
If I could leave ZERO start, I would! After having a plate & screws put in my hand, scar tissue wrapped around the tendons in 3 of my fingers.. Dr. Chekovsky avoided me like the plague for a month. The PA spent 5 min with me saying "just keep trying to get it to move" & told me come back in a month. I scheduled an appt to see ONLY the doc, my appt was for 11:15 today, it's now 12:50 and still waiting. Looks like I'm going to have to go out of network to get this fixed. Don't waste your time & $!

Dr. Chekofsky was in the room for at most 47 seconds, Very rude, Gruff, and full of himself, not supportive of patient at all. Would not recommend this doctor for my dog

I'm not sure what these reviews are about. Dr. Chekofsky has been perfectly kind with each visit I have had and I feel fully confident in his expertise to perform surgery. He has many, many patients so it doesn't seem fair two unhappy reviewers should be all that rate him.
Broken Arrow, OK |
I have been extremely disappointed with the service of Dr. Chekofsky. His office treated me like a number, casted me for way too long and left me with severe soft tissue damage leaving me out of work for months. I have actually never even seen him, just aides and then given large bills. It is quite a shame. T I never give any companies poor reviews but I want to spare some one, referred by St. Fransis from the agony I have had to endure. EOOC or Tulsa Bone and joint are better bets for ortho.

Dr. Chemically was an hour late for my husbands initial appt for assessment for carpal tunnel surgery. Today he is having surgery. We arrived at 5:45 for a 6:00 am check-in, spent 45 minutes in the waiting room and finally got back to a room to prepare for surgery. I was told by Dr Chekofsky's assistant that the surgery would begin at 8;00 and would be completed by 8:30. At nearly 9:00 I asked someone for an update and was told that he had just been taken back for surgery. We won't be back.
