I recently had a knee replacement and Dr. Kubik was my surgeon. He has been my Orthopedic Doctor for a decade. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him and his physician's assistant, Allison Wade. He has done both of my knee replacements. He is an excellent clinical and skilled surgeon and I have had the most amazing outcome both times. He is a kind and compassionate doctor with only the patients best interest at heart. I would not trust anyone else with my orthopedic needs. He is simply the BEST.

Dr Kubik and his team are great. 10 weeks ago I could hardly walk 100 feet to mail box because of my bad knee. Since having a knee replacement I can once again walk, bike, or what ever and am back to my normal life, Dr Kubik and his team are excellent listeners and not in a hurry. More important they are excellent in what they do. I highly recommend them.

I was kindly and professionally received by Dr. Kubik III and his assistants. To facilitate my visit he sent his assistant Christine to do an initial review. Upon completion of that, within a few minutes Dr. Kubik III did a post operation exam of my shoulder replacement (that occurred on February 19. 2020) and identified that my recovery progress was extremely good. His examination and response was very reassuring. I am to do a follow up visit in February 2021. He provided a friendly environment.

I couldn't have found a better doctor to do my surgery than Dr. Kubik. From the moment we met him I knew he was who I wanted to do my procedure. He took the time to discuss every option with us, he explained things in terms we could understand and never once made us feel rushed during any appointment. The office staff is amazing as well. Anytime I had questions or concerns they were quick to get back to me.

I went to see Dr. Kubik on Monday, May 18,2020. He is always very concerned about his patients. He takes time to explain everything, to answer any questions and leaves no room for doubt. I trust him explicitly as a surgeon and his interaction with me has always been beyond excellent. I have complete trust in his skill as a surgeon and his knowledge in his field. I would recommend Dr. Kubik to anyone in need of the skills he offers. He is a very personable man and makes the physician appointment something to look forward to, rather than dread.

Dr. Kubik is a great doctor. He is very thorough and takes his time to answer all your questions. His staff is also top notch. He did a knee replacement on me about 5 years ago and it made a huge difference in my life.

Best Doctor I could ask for. very caring and takes the time to listen to your needs. Very thorough and did excellent surgery on my shoulder. I have full mobility back and could not ask for anything better. I would go to him again in a minute for any other Ortho needs I may have in the future.

First time I saw Dr. kubik was because two doctors in Butler told me I was to young, I'm 55 and have at least 10 more years to work. He assured me I was a good candidate for TKA and that I could get 30ish years out of a replacement. So march 11th 2020 he did the right knee and other than severe sciatic nerve pain for 12 days all is well, 105* at therapy yesterday after little progress for 12 days I think it's healing well. No staples and 1 long stitch with the sealed dressing that I could shower when I got home is heeling great. Hoping to get the other knee done June 10th, if this virus settles down.

This was my second rotator cuff repair with Dr. Kubik. He is always kind and patient. I had a good result both times. He does run behind schedule, but the wait is worth it.

I tore my rotator cuff in June 2019. Dr. Kubik did the surgery August 13th. I could not be happier with the experience as well as the result. It is January 2020 and my shoulder is as good as new. Dr. Kubik is a kind man and obviously highly skilled!!
