We were impressed with Dr. Switaj's excellent care. He recommended testing not previously done - which revealed information necessary for the successful treatment of my daughter's injury. Dr. Switaj was able to explain the treatment options and give us all the information we needed to make an informed decision about how best to treat my daughter's injury - something we did not find with previous doctor's we had visited. We are grateful for his compassionate, personable care.
This was my second (hopefully last) ankle surgery. My first surgeon was very underwhelming. Dr. Switaj is fantastic. He is super thorough in explaining both the condition and options for a solution. He provided a prep packet for surgery that was comprehensive and helpful, answering many of my questions before I had to ask. He followed up with me personally after surgery to check on my status. I absolutely recommend him!

I would plan to see Dr. Switaj in the future, if needed. He is very considerate, explains the diagnosis clearly and is proactive.
