Unknown is scary!!
Unknown is always scary, Dr.Jajkowski explained in detail to where I could understand what the process was going to be during Robotic surgery, my anxiety was getting the best of me, he reassured me and calmed me down with his mild manner ways.

Dr.J is excellent. I would highly recommend him. He explained everything to me in terms that my family and I could understand. He spends an ample amount of time at each and every appointment. As far as I am concerned, he saved my life.

I can't say enough good thing's about Dr. Jajkowski ! From the moment we first saw him we could tell right away that he the surgeon for my husband. He never rushed us and answered every question , even though we asked the same things over a couple times. His skills as a surgeon with out a doubt our top notch. Dr.Jajkowski staff kept me updated, the care he gave my husband was outstanding. When you go for follow up's he is the same way, never rushing you. His staff is friendly and Marie his PA is wonderful, makes you feel at ease always and you don't find that much these days. If he is referred to you don't give it a second thought. I could go on and on but I will end by saying my husband has healed wonderful from a surgery over 6 hours.

Dr Jajkowski was referred to me for lung surgery, not knowing what to expect he walked me and my family through the process. My surgery was a success and he and his team followed up to ensure I was well. I again needed lung surgery and Dr Jajkowski again walked my family and I through the process. Follow-up by Dr Jajkowski and his PA Maria showed care and compassion and I have on several occasions attributed my success to them.

Dr.Jajkowski was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable as he explained my procedure and answered all my questions. His nurse practitioner Maria is wonderful. Her sense of humor and her ability to make you feel at ease is special. I called the office to leave a message for Maria and within minutes she had called me back!

Dr. Jajkowski and his nurse practitioner, Marci provided excellent care for my mother. From the original consultation, surgery and post surgery care, we couldn't have asked for a more professional, kind, caring team.

DR. Jajkowski is my kind of doctor-He's confident and knows what he wants to do- NO waffling and that's the way I like it. He tells you the facts and gives you your options and listens to my questions and concerns and then gives his advice which I put a lot of faith in. He did a terrific job on my lung surgery and he will be seeing me every 6 months for the next three years and I look forward to him taking care of me.

I would not recommend Dr. Jajkowski. He ruined my mother. His surgery mangled her back, he took out ribs and did not replace them with anything to stabilize the area. Two months later, he inserted a medi-port into her chest- nicked and deflated her lung, and put the port in incorrectly. My mom has been in constant, unending pain since she was since by him. He also has a terrible bed side manner.

Dr. Jajkowski was incredibly professional when it came to scheduling, performing, and following up with me after my surgery. He did an excellent job on my lobotomy and I am recovering rapidly. After the operation he aided in my recovery by keeping me and the nurses updated about how to treat me in my post-op condition. Overall he was very attentive, kind, and had a great personality that made me very optimistic about the whole situation. I would definitely recommend Dr. Jajkowski.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Jajkowski!!! He is the best! I recovered from surgery quickly and (almost) painlessly. He has a wonderful, outgoing personality. I have NEVER had to wait at my appointment, I’ve always been called at or before my appointment time. His staff is efficient and friendly.

My pulmonary specialist recommended Dr. Jajkowski to me for a second opinion. His office got me in quickly for an appointment. Dr. Jajkowski went over my records, explaining what he saw on the x-rays clearly, including showing me images. His evaluation was very helpful and I am looking forward to my visit to my regular pulmonary specialist for confirmation.
