Dr Conwisar is an awesome doctor. He did a total hip replacement on my right hip about 2 years ago and I've never had any issues. He's an awesome surgeon. He is intense and matter of fact because he's good. He's not going to hold your hand or talk about your fallen arches (joke). I'm almost 56 yrs old and if I need my left hip done, he's doing it!!

My wife was told by Dr Conwisar in December 2016 that she needed shoulder surgery. But it was impossible to get a hold of, or a response from, his surgery scheduler. Nor will the office manager return a call to explain why no one in his office can be bothered to return a call.. It's been 7 months now and she had to go to another doctor for treatment. No sense going to a doctor who's staff is going to stand in the way of your getting treatment.

This man is the absolute worst doctor I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. He is rude, condescending, and treats you like you're a bother to his existence. He sulks into the room and grunts hello, never once making eye contact. When you try to voice your concerns about your health he cuts you off and yells at you for having an opinion about your own health. DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS DOCTOR. If you value your health and any part of your body go elsewhere to get treated by a real physician.

Is as sent to Dr. Conwisar thru workers compensation. They had previously had me see other Drs. I had no option to choose. I did not like the Dr. His bedside manor was horrible more often than not I left his office in tears due hie degrading me. Even my nurse case manager stated I should not be treated that way. Waited for hours while at me appointments. He was always grumpy and never smiled. He accused me of Dr. Shopping to get the results I wanted. I only wanted to be treated like a human.

Caring office staff, prompt, and knowledgeable. Dr. Conwisar has a quiet demeanor and an excellent bedside manner. He is an expert in his field. I highly recommend Dr. Conwisar and his practice.
