There is usually a wait when you have an appointment because Dr. Kubik takes all the time needed with each patient. He never rushes and answers all questions. I never mind waiting, because when it is my turn, I know I will receive the same unrushed attention.

I was referred to Dr. Kubik by my friends and family, and I was not disappointed. He did my rotator cuff surgery and I was extremely satisfied with the entire experience. He is an excellent and caring doctor.

Doctor Kubik possesses everything one wants in a doctor: incredible expertise and genuine friendliness; he is a very cheerful person. Had rotator cuff surgery with him, for which I was a bit nervous, but the experience was seamless and I am quickly on the road to recovery (and I am 64). Bring something to do/read when you have an appointment, as Dr. Kubik does not rush patients through consultations, but will sit with you as long as necessary and discuss all your concerns, as well as the patients before you.

When I was injured in 2011 I was referred to GPOA and eventually to Dr. Kubik, he operated on my left shoulder which is great still today, a few years later I injured my left knee in which I went back to Dr. Kubik and he fixed it, I reinjured the left knee again and I went back to Dr. Kubik for that also. In my opinion Dr. Kubik is by far my first and only choice for a orthopedic Dr., and he explains everything and answers every ? you have, his staff is excellent also. A great surgeon, 10 stars!

PUT OFF A SHOULDER REPLACEMENT BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE HORROR STORIES. TALKED TO DR. KUBIK, IT'S LIKE TALKING TO YOUR BEST FRIEND. HE ANSWERED EVERY QUESTION I HAD. THE SURGERY WENT VERY WELL, THERE WAS LITTLE PAIN AND I ONLY TOOK 3 PAIN PILLS. AFTER TEN VISITS TO THERAPY, I HAD FULL MOTION AND IT IS GREAT. HE HAS THE BEST PERSONALITY OF ANY DOCTOR I'VE BEEN TO AND APPARENTLY A VERY GOOD SURGEON FROM THE RESULTS I HAVE. I WILL DEFINITELY GO TO HIM FOR FUTURE SURGERIES.

Dr. Kubik did a total knee replacement on my right knee, I would like to thank him and his staff for their friendliness and help during my care. Even though it's been only 1 1/2 months since my surgery, it is really going well. Dr. Kubik takes time with his patients and listens to your concerns and he answers all questions in depth so you can understand everything.

I saw him for shoulder pain and not sure what to expect. He was very thorough, easy to talk with, caring, and conservative. Both visits were above my expectations.

I originally was told I wouldn't need surgery but in the end, ended up wasting 3 months of time in a cast and boot and then had to have surgery. The doctor was good through all of this but it is a shame the decision for surgery didn't come sooner. He did want to avoid surgery, so it is possible any doctor would have done the same treatment in the end. He was a very good doctor though and the surgery went very well. I would recommend him for that reason to others.

I had bilateral knee replacements by Dr. Kubik . Dealing with knee problems for over 10 years , it was Dr Kubik’s advise that finally made up my mind to have the surgery. He is very knowledgeable of all treatments and procedures relating to my condition. Dr Kubik, Allison and his staff are all very friendly and accommodating ! He was very attentive to all my questions and concerns! (and I had ALOT) I recommend him to all my family and friends! Also Allison goes above and beyond to help in anyway

Dr Kubik and his staff are fantastic. He has replaced both of my shoulders over the last 4 years. He is meticulous in his work and has taken the time to answer all of my questions from pre surgery injections, to my final visit where we discussed weight lifting maximums. I especially recognize Alison and Tina - PA and nurse who were with me every step of the way. They both are professional, proficient and compassionate. Having caring professionals helps during the process and they are. Thanks Doc

Dr. Kubik performed my reverse shoulder replacement. He thoroughly explained the procedure, what I could expect the outcome to be, and literally everything I needed to know. He always took the time to answer any questions or concerns I had, and was kind, courteous and respectful. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon.

I have been seeing Dr. Kubik for the past nine years - that says plenty about my confidence in him. He has always taken the time to explain my condition in a way that I can understand, and the fact that he spends time listening to my concerns is very important to me. I don't ever feel rushed - that's one thing that is a determining factor in my choice of physicians, and I will certainly continue to see Dr. Kubik for my orthopedic needs. One successful knee replacement - one more to go! Thanks!

Dr. Kubik is the best!! He did an amazing job with my knee replacement and took time to explain various details regarding my specific health issues. Pre- and post-surgery care is excellent. His staff is kind, courteous, and efficient. I am very thankful to have switched to Dr. Kubik for my knee surgery and care.

Dr. Kubik replaced my ACL 10 years after I had a complete tear. I had a great surgery and full recovery, by the end of my rehab I was running 2 miles every other day! When I reinjured my knee this year, I could not have been more confident having him as my surgeon. This has been another great surgery and I am on the way to another full recovery. To talk to Dr. Kubik I immediately saw what a genuine and nice guy he is, that he really cares about me and he has immense knowledge. Thank you, Dr K!
