Patient Comments (5)
in Cincinnati, OH |
He was the third doctor I saw for the same condition but he clearly knew what he was talking about which the others didn't. He is very easy to talk to and the office staff was great. I would recomment him and the Montogery office.
in Cincinnati, OH |
I saw Dr. Paczas after rupturing a tendon in my finger. Easy to get the appointment, personable. The diagnosis was obvious. BUT...I was then turned over to a trainee who completely botched the treatment. She prepared splints for my finger that were mis-sized cut from the wrong material. When I returned for my next follow-up, the nurse was shocked at the error, and Dr. Paczas acknowledged the mistake. My finger did not heal properly and is now (apparently) permanently disfigured.

Easy to get an appointment, was seen quickly at every appointment, great results from his treatment, takes his time to discuss the condition/ treatment, answers every question. Friendly, didn't feel rushed through the appointment like he had somewhere else he'd rather be.
in Milford, OH |
Dr. Paczas was warm and friendly. I talked to me straight and answered all my questions. Very pleased so far.
in Apex, NC |
Dr. Paczas was very caring and gentle with my mother as her arthritis was extremely painful. All staff, including the nurse explained everything in detail and answered our questions. We would definitely recommend him to others for similar medical issues.
