Went to Dr.Drabicki for rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders. July I had my rt.shoulder repaired and when I was comfortable with my recovery I returned for my left shoulder. Both operations went smoothly and I was out of the surgery center and sent home within 2.5 hours. I highly recommend Dr. Drabicki for any surgeries that you may need. His offices are staffed by qualified employees who are there to make sure that everything goes well. After going years with shoulder pain I forgot what it feels like to be pain free. THANKS DOC.

I strongly recommend Dr. Drabicki for your surgical needs and have already recommended him to others. He successfully repaired a very badly torn rotator cuff for me. He first recommended physical therapy before he decided that surgery was the best way to fix me. So he is a Dr more concerned with getting you better with or without surgery. He kept me informed on what to expect before and after surgery. He stressed it is a long recovery but that I would get better and I did. Thanks for fixing me!

Did an outstending job repairing my rotator cuff tear. Two opinions before him, said it could not be completely repair. He was able to do the surgery completely.

Dr. Drabicki did a skillful job on my shoulder surgery, a torn rotator cuff. He is a good listener and took time to understand my needs, pain level, and desire for extended PT. My only suggestion is that I could have been better prepared (mentally) for the surgery if I had known what to expect. The nerve block and what it entails was scary, even as I was glad firbit afterwards. His staff is efficient and friendly. I am pleased with my recovery even as I realize 100% will take more time.

Dr. Drabicki is absolutely wonderful!! We can honestly say he is by far the best doctor we could ever have the privilege of associating with. He is extremely, extremely knowledgeable and explained things in layman's terms for us to understand. Dr. Drabicki's bedside manner is above reproach. He's kind, very caring, and truly listens to his patients. Not many physicians like him these days. We have and will continue to recommend him to everyone. He's the best of the best.

My experience has been excellent. Shoulder replacement surgery went very smoothly and recovery time has been faster than expected. Full pain free motion achieved in twelve weeks after surgery

The most disrespectful human I ever met. He refused to even acknowledge my pain. Told me I don't need treatment without even examining me. He moved my injured body part around and I told him it hurt. He even questioned whether or not something I went to the hospital for even happened. Told me I was questioning him and then he resorted to saying he is the expert. I was never treated so disrespectful in my life by anyone, let alone a doctor

Not once have I dread/surgery on my rotator cuff. Dr. Drabicki was an amazing doctor at my time of need. Nothing showed up on the X-rays/therapy wasn't working/MRI showed bad torn, he said you gotta let me fix that. As anyone else I don't like surgery but Dr. Drabicki and his team made it very pleasant through it all. His bedside manners were just as great. The nurses at UPMC/Harmar sent a well card , they remembered I wanted Bob Evans and hoped I enjoyed it! Now 26mos no regrets! Lineburg!
