Dr. Piotrowski is an amazing doctor who truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to explain things to you so that you understand them. Being a Brca 2 patient,he was very knowledgeable in this gene & explained to me my options.He referred me to a wonderful oncologist & worked together to make sure I got the best treatment available. I owe my life to Dr. Piotrowski. He is the best.

Dr. Piorkowski was amazing throughout my cancer journey. He directed me to an amazing oncologist and plastic surgeon. He was upfront and direct with a great bedside manner. I would highly recommend him and would return to his practice if needed (but lets hope not).

I would highly recommend Dr. Piorkowski at The Hand Center. He offered to handle my surgery in order to get it done as soon as possible because the dislocated bones were beginning to heal in the wrong place. The surgery went very smooth and he made me feel very confident in his abilities and my recovery. I went for my follow up today and my hand is healing very well and the stitches look nice and clean. He's a friendly doctor who really makes you feel comfortable about the whole thing.
