Dr. Pushkarewicz was awesome. If anything were to happen in the future, I will see him again. He worked with me all the way through, and I could't have asked for a better doctor!
Very friendly, professional, and excellent care!
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!

Went to visit Dr. Pushkarewicz for a dislocated thumb. I had surgery. He put two pins in, to hold it in place. Put a hook in, to put tendon back in place. The result are great. Took time to explain everything.
I am very pleased with the care I received
Dr. Pushkarewicz and staff have taken excellent care of me. Very responsive, helpful, friendly, and I highly recommend the practice! No long waits which I appreciate. My care was top of the line.
Dr. Pushkarewicz is fantastic, magic skills, highly professional, but you feel like he's a friend. I've always requested First State Orthopaedics for all my problems. You are the best!!

Excellent surgeon and has great diagnostic ability.
When I came into the office for my first appointment, I thought surgery was my only option. However, after excellent treatment and advice from Dr. Kahlon, surgery was no longer a concern. I was at 80% healed by my second appointment. I will be at 100% within a month or so. Very pleased!
Dr. P was very thorough and took the time to explain everything. Would definitely recommend First State Ortho!
Everyone is awesome and made for a pleasant experience
Knee replacement is fantastic
Great surgeon. Very knowledgeable.
Dr. Pushkarewicz took great care of my son. All questions were answered and environment was always professional. I would recommend this place immediately!
I visited First State after not feeling heard at a different orthopaedic practice. Dr. Pushkarewicz listened to the issues I was having with my knee and promptly ordered an MRI. The MRI found a tear which has been surgically taken care of.
Every visit I've had was good with the information being given easy to understand.
Dr. Pushkarewicz and team were excellent! Very much appreciated understanding in scheduling and clear explanations.
Dr. P is top notch. Very pleased with my treatment!
Very kind and professional!
