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.

Dr. Sodry took the time to explain my symptoms and provide a path to recovery. I felt at ease and much better after talking to Dr. Sodry, will definitely recommend this doctor.
