Bad time management. This is the second time with bad experience. My appointment was at 3pm and they called me in at 3:25pm and had to continue to wait for another 20 mins. He doesn't even apologize and doesn't listen. After all the wait. He is always in such a hurry and literally sees you for like 5 mins or less. So annoying

Dr. Wyzykowski, MD, has always been extremely professional, thorough, and personable every time I’ve visited with him. I have frozen shoulder in both shoulders, and I was told I needed major rotator cuff surgery by a Martinez County Doctor; so I sought out two more medical professionals for second opinions, and Dr. Wyzykowski has been the most thorough and ethical of all three doctors. Dr. Wyzykowski prescribed cortisone shots 3 years ago and then physical therapy; and my range of motion in both shoulders has improved drastically since then. I have had some upper back pain recently because both of my rotator cuffs seem weak, and Dr. Wyzykowski ordered an MRI for both shoulders to make sure there are no tears; and prescribed a prescription safe anti inflammatory. I highly recommend Dr. Wyzykowski, MD, for anyone with frozen shoulder issues. 10/10 stars!

Dr. Wyzykowski is a very good Orthopaedic Specialist. He had done a good job in fixing my Right shoulder Rotator Cuff Tear & with the help of Physical Therapist to gain back my strength in my shoulder. I feel better now, but still having my exercises at home... Thank you Dr. Wyzykowski for your expertise, it’s greatly appreciated! You are also a very good adviser for me...Since I live by myself, I was so worried on how could I cook my food for 3 months? You told me to cook foods before surgery & freeze it in portions...that really worked & made my life easier. I’m so blessed you’re my Doctor.

I found him competent but with terrible bedside manner. Rushed, arrogant, and hurt me unnecessarily at the time of the injection. Will look for someone else, preferably a woman.

Dr. WYZYKOWSKI performed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder and rotator cuff/bicep surgery on my left shoulder. My office visits were always enlightening and doctor very patiently answered all my questions. I felt he cared and showed interest in my situation. Finally, I am so very thankful to have had such a wonderful surgeon and feel, at last, I’m back to normal.

Dr. Wyzykowski did shoulder surgery and bicep tendon repair. I had no problems recovering after surgery. Hopefully I never have to do shoulder surgery again, but if I do I definitely would have Dr. Wyzykowski as my surgeon. I would recommend him to others who are in an unfortunate situation of needing shoulder surgery..
