Not a good experience. Operated on my husbands meniscus and he had nothing but problems. Ended up going to Dr. Delloss for a knee replacement. Excellent job by Delloss. Do not recommend.

Beware, they charged me a global fee of around $500 on the first day without letting me know prior in hand. The Billing office has charged $711 for that visit, out of which my insurance paid around $310 and the rest of $401 is on me to pay. I don’t know how far it is legitimate to charge a global fee like this without making the patient aware prior in hand and also in cases where the patient don’t need much follow ups. As a Doctor, I have no complains with DR Pushkarewicz.

Amongst so many positive reviews, it is disconcerting that my own experience fell short. I am submitting this review anyway, as the negative and positive reviews do help others decide the most appropriate surgeon for their needs.

Dr. Pushkarewicz made me so comfortable after my first surgery along with the healing. I felt so much at ease with the second surgery and trusted his decision making during the entire process.

The professionalism of Dr. P and his staff made this the most satisfactory medical procedure I've undergone - and that's really saying something. Dr. P's skill is unsurpassed! I highly recommend him and First State Ortho!
