West Palm Beach, FL |
Dr Kolshak did an arthroscopic carpal tunnel release on my left wrist in August 2016. As a retired rheumatologist, I have some experience with this diagnosis. I could not ask for better results or a better hand and wrist surgeon.
Im so glad i went to see Dr kolshak. I was so worried about never using my hand again after i broke it. She was awesome and got me back to normal. Great office!

I would not recommend her, for the following: #1. she gave me a simple, generic wrist brace that costs maybe $30 on Amazon or at CVS, and charged me $60 and another $130 for fitting it. There was no fitting involved, it is just a generic wrist wrap that comes in one size. I feel ripped off. #2. Has a sour temperament. #3. I visited another Orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion. I asked him his opinion of Dr. Kolshak, and he said she's a mediocre surgeon and a strange person.
I apologize for the late response and your unpleasant experience. Unfortunately, pricing for braces and office visits are set per Medicare guidelines. It is disheartening to hear a fellow surgeon has tried to discredit me. Please feel free to contact my office if there is anything further you would like to discuss. Thank you.
