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.
