I am a 13 year old with moderate to severe Scoliosis. In January 2019 Dr Michal Szczodry operated on my spine. My parents and I loved his personality along with his ability to explain medical information in a way that put all of our minds at ease. I will be forever grateful that he was my surgeon. I high recommend him. My family and I go back for check ups as instructed and we always look forward to seeing Dr. Szczodry and his nursing staff, they always make you feel special! Clair

Dr. Szczodry is willing to do whatever it takes to help improve scoliosis. He is good on checking up on you, and making sure your incision is healing correctly. The nurses & staff at Shriners make you feel calm and safe, they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make you satisfied. It’s my first time having surgery, and I’m very impressed with the work Szczodry has done. I reccommend him if you have Scoliosis & are in need of surgery. Shriners is such a welcoming place. Thank you.

Dr. Szczodry is by far the best Dr out there. I had terrible sciatica and a herniated disc. I had a special set of circumstances unfold that was NOT his fault. He spent hours in and out of surgery fixing me. He genuinely cares and has the best bedside manner. I could never say enough good things about him and his staff. He will always be one of my favorite people. He truly gave me life back and because of him, I have never felt better. I am truly blessed I was under his extraordinary care!!

I would like to share with everyone my successful surgery experience with Dr. Michal Szczodry. I was at MOC seeing another doctor, while waiting I noticed that a new doctor had joined the practice. I read his resume and was very impressed. When I met with Dr. Leonard he encouraged me to talk to Dr. Szczodry and see if he could help me with my continuing back problems. I made the appointment with Dr. Szczodry, he read the MRI and we talked at length about my history of back problems. At the end o

I had an issue regarding my balance and I don’t speak English. The front desk found a polish speaking employee who was able to help. No only did she help she went out of her way and called there other office (Oak Lawn) because I have an appointment there this afternoon and she didn’t want me to have any trouble checking in at that time. So she explained everything to them so it would be easier for me to check in . I really appreciate them all working as a team to make sure the patient is happy.

PLEASE READ. Went to Dr. for 2nd opinion. Went thru everything from 1st doctor with dealing with lower back and Dr. came out and stated my problem is in my neck area. Had an MRI next day and was to see Dr. in 1 week. Dr. didn't wait for a week changed appointment to next day. I had major trouble with walking, dizziness and my left arm/hand.From his staff,nurse to Dr. they all are friendly, helpful and Dr. explain everything. Had major surgery, after 5 wks major improvement. I have been bless.

My father saw Dr. Szczodry a few months ago for severe back pain. We absolutely loved him. We felt like he really listened to us and took his time explaining our options. We never felt rushed like the last surgeon we saw. Dr. Szczodry came highly recommended from an operating room nurse that works with him. We were told that he truly takes his time to make sure that his patients outcomes are always as perfect as possible. Everyone notices and appreciates that. My father is feeling much better!

Dr. Szczodry was able to walk me through my symptoms and explain to me what my treatment options were. He made me feel at ease during a very stressful time in my life. He was patient with me when I asked a ton of questions and made me feel ready for the journey ahead. I would highly recommend him to anyone having trouble with their back or neck.

Me and my wife went to see dr szczodry a few months ago. He is now my 3rd doctor i have seen for my back. What impressed me the most was the time he took to evaluate me and my wife and explain all my options. I have since had surgery with dr szczodry and could not be happier. My wife was seeing him for neck pain and was told from other doctors that she would need surgery. Dr szczodry ordered physical therapy and since then she has been happy.
