Following a serious slip and fall with multiple fractures in my right arm, I needed an experienced Trauma Surgeon. Having never broken a bone in my 65 years of age, I had no idea where to begin. Fortunately my search was over after my initial appointment with Dr. Laura Prokuski, she possesses the knowledge, experience, confidence, sensitivity, honesty and thorough explanations that I desperately needed to proceed. Her skilled hands put me back together and allowed me to enjoy an active life!!
