Reputation of being the best surgeon is so true!!!
Every appointment I had with him was a 5 star experience. He is professional but so very, personable, pleasant and patient in explaining thoroughly and in layman's terms the procedure or ANY question I would ask. I felt very comfortable talking to him and asking any questions. I like that he always has a ready smile. I actually looked forward to my appointments with him because of his pleasantness. When asked who was my surgeon I couldn't believe how many people were familiar with him personally because he was their surgeon or someone they knew had him. He ALWAYS received rave reviews and now I personally know why. He is an outstanding surgeon but more importantly an outstanding person. I wish him the best and may God continue to bless his hands and him in all aspects of his life.

Knee replacement surgery
Very kind & answered all of my questions. Never appeared as if he was in a hurry. Unfortunately I developed neuropraxia postoperative. He was very reassuring that this condition would improve. And it did. His P. A. also was very kind and encouraging.

Had shoulder surgery by Dr. Kubik and he was very good. My shoulder is better but he was honest with me that my recovery would take 6 months to a year.

Expect a long wait time in the waiting room and exam room. The reason being that Dr. Kubik will spend as much time with you as you need. He did my knee replacement and everything has worked out well so far.

Outstanding Physician
Dr Kubik has the best bedside manners of any physician I have dealt with and I have been in healthcare for over 25 years. He has performed surgery on my shoulder and my knee and I couldn't have had better outcomes. I have referred family and friends to him and have never received any negative feedback. He's just an all-around good man.

A very kind gentle skilled surgeon
I have had many surgeries in my life. Dr. Kubik is among the most skilled . Dr Kubik has a wonderful bedside manner. He patiently answers all questions explaining things in very understandable terms. He is gentle with his exams. I have had surgery on both rotator cuffs by Dr. Kubik. I have 100% successful surgeries on both shoulders with full range of motion.

Excellent results!
Dr. Kubik is very easy to talk to and does not ever make you feel stupid over any questions you may have. He did both of my total knee replacements, one in December and one in March. His staff is efficient and all seem to enjoy their job. He may sometimes have what we would consider a ‘longer than normal’ wait time for appointments but when you stop and think of how many questions I’ve asked him that went way beyond 15 or 20 minutes and I never felt rushed, you realize that the wait is worth it.

Double Knee Replacement
Dr. Kubik is an amazing, compassionate, successful surgeon. He has operated on both of my shoulders for torn rotator cuffs, and most recently, double knee replacement. You are never rushed, no question goes unanswered. He absolutely goes above and beyond. Best doctor ever!
