Chaska, MN |
Excellent physician. Attentive, knowledgeable, and skilled. He replaced my knee a year ago and I couldn't be more pleased. I have excellent range of motion and can even sit in a modified lotus position.

Dr Vorlicky completed a TKA on me three months ago. He did an excellent job on my knee and gave me full ROM. He was very compassionate, highly skilled and professional. I am glad that he has accepted me as his patient.
Bloomington, MN |
Dr. Vorlicky:Great bed side manner. Listened, examined, looked at Urgent Care Ortho notes and scans, considered diagnosis & ordered further testing. Dr. Vorlicky out of town. PA called with test results. He was very unprofessional, downplayed the scan results that confirmed MD diagnosis. Stated there was no need for follow up, contrary to MD request due to risk of fractures. Stated my dx does not cause pain yet unable to put full weight on leg for a week due to pain. Did not f/u MD due to PA.
in Minnetonka, MN |
Before seeing Dr. Vorlicky, x-rays were taken, which I found odd. Normally a person is assessed before tests are done. When Dr. Vorlicky came into the room he seemed rushed, like he couldn't wait to be done with me. He had a scribe with him but did not introduce her and no one ever verified my name or date of birth. He looked at my hands, asked how old I was and said he wouldn't do anything. Never mentioned the x-rays, did not voluntarily give me any information.
in St Paul, MN |
Spent little time with me during my one and only pre-surgery appointment. Post-surgery appointment was staffed by his PA rather than him. Saw him once for 20 seconds during my 4 days in the hospital. Seems to spend the least time possible with patients. My new knee seems to working well, however.
