Surgery was my very last option. Dr. Ochalski explained the process in detail and put my mind at ease. The only thing I am mad about is not getting it done sooner! Thank you Dr. Ochalski! I would recommend you in a heartbeat!

Dr. Ochalski has been absolutely fantastic. He is incredible knowledgeable and helped put difficult terminology into terms we could understand. He was kind and courteous and treated his patient with the utmost respect. He explained a very difficult and intense surgery to us and was always concerned...more

I cannot recommend Dr Ochalski enough. I had 2 prior back operations with another Dr and they were unsuccessful, and I had given up hope, but Dr Ochalski was successful! I found him caring, professional and most of all, he listened.
