Outstanding. Simply outstanding! Jack Shannon Torn bicep tendon
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Jurek operated on my right knee in 2016 and after a few weeks, I could not believe how much better it was. I had a "humongous" tear in my meniscus and today, I can do anything I want. I may need surgery on my left knee soon and I will demand Dr. Jurek performs the surgery. She is AWESOME!

Dr. Jurek has a great attitude and ability to put the patient's mind at ease in communicating a clear picture with the utmost confidence in her experience and ability.

Dr. Jurek is a top surgeon and a such a caring person. After years of shoulder pain and a diagnosis of severe arthritis, I went to Dr. Jurek (she was recommended as one of the best). After a thorough and careful discussion of all options, she helped me arrive at the best surgical decision tailored specifically to my needs and goals - a shoulder replacement. On top of that, she has a great sense of humor and truly cares about her patients. If there were a six star option, I'd give her six!!

I was referred to Dr Jurek by two different physicians for a torn distal bicep tendon. I had done my research and due diligence regarding this injury and was aware of the many options and ramifications of each. A previous physician had send me for an MRI and I made an appt with her. Dr. Jurek viewed the MRI and moved my appt up to the next day. I went in, we discussed the options, she explained things thoroughly and completely and performed the surgery the very next day.

a lifetime athlete, i went to DR JUREK for what she described as a routine clean and debriding for left shoulder bursitis - after consenting to failed injections to avoid op i stopped because unlike other young surgeons, she had no knowledge of ultrasound guided injection which gives better results - didn't use the word guarantee when asked what results to expect but repeated x's how i'd be 100 % again - after rx'ed rehab, i am now living a nightmare due to her inexperience -

I was under diagnosed by at least 2 doctors. Dr. Jurek recognized the complete consequences of my condition explained and re-explained about my condition as treatment progressed. I have been able to stay in contact with the doc via direct email. Doc was concerned when I was frustrated with portions of my after care and took direct action to correct my concerns. All professionals who have seen my scar and x-rays are very impressed. My outcome is all fingers and thumbs up. No more pain. Yeah!
