Patient Comments (6)
in Albuquerque, NM |
In 2007 I was involved in a motorcycle accident that resulted in multiple fractures. While I received emergency care at UNMH I needed to be seen for follow up care by an orthopedist. Doctor Mitnik accepted me as a patient when other orthopedic surgeons were reluctant to do so because of my injuries. Thanks to his care I am able to walk and lead a normal life. I highly recommend Dr. Mitnik.

Dr. Mitnik performed a knee replacement surgery on my Rt knee. The surgerywent as I expected and my recovery was uneventful. I am glad I choose Dr. Mitnik to perform my surgery.

Dr. Mitnik and staff are fantastic! He set my arm 25 years ago and recently he took care of my hand issues. He is knowledgeable and so pleasant. The staff, as well are great! It is wonderful to see a physician with some of the same staff for over 2 decades!

Dr. Is great! His staff is very incompetent and rude. Not helpful at all.
