This was my first visit with Dr.Makoweic and I was very impressed with his professionalism and his manourism. After spending just a few moments with him I felt like I knew him for a long time . We need more Dr's like him. He was very through , gentle and explained every thing to me in my language . Would highly recommend him .

Dr Makowiec performed surgery to re-attach my torn bicep tendon at the elbow, he told me it would take 3 mos from the surgery date to regain full function of my arm.. Today is exactly 3 mos and thanks to his skill and the great care the Physical therapy staff gives I'm glad to say I do have full function of my arm and can play my guitar again with no pain
