Patient Comments (4)
peoria, az |
Visited for an industrial injury and it was obvious the minute I showed up he was not interested in what I was experiencing simply going through the motions and his mind appeared already made up. Not sure what his motivation is but didn't seem to be for me and listening to me. Humiliating honestly.

I would like to thank Dr. Rockowitz and his staff. Everyone is friendly, thoughtful and professional. I am very thankful for Dr. Rockowitz's knowledge and expertise in the field of joint replacement, my knees have never felt better. I appreciate that he patiently took the time to explain the procedure thoroughly.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
My wife had double knee replacement -- knees were bone-on-bone. Dr.'s surgical room has a curtain of sterile air constantly flowing around patient, reducing chance of infection. Post-op her legs were on motion machine in hospital bed, she was gotten out of bed within a few hours after surgical recovery. She had also been a bit bow-legged, and surgical knee replacement included straightening her legs. All hospital staff informally had high esteem for Dr. Rockowitz.
in Phoenix, AZ |
I have had an excellent outcome with my total knee replacement surgery. Dr. Rockowitz explained everything clearly and completely. He was very easy to understand and very pleasant. When I had a concern unrelated to the surgery, he was happy to see me and check things out. Always a pleasure to talk to. His staff is efficient and great at answering questions promptly.
