I saw Dr. Kocaj today for a knee injury ... He was, at once, friendly, engaged and truly interested in what I had to say while explaining what had happened. He succinctly diagnosed the problem, told me what he thought we should do and then proceeded to treat me. I left feeling uplifted that there are doctors like him available to us. Just such a nice experience; trust him implicitly after one visit.

I highly recommend Dr. Kocaj. From the first visit, he made me feel at ease with a great bedside manner and positive personality. He spends a lot of time with you and gets to know you as a patient. He performed surgery on my knee and I felt confident in his skill and level of care. I’ve been equally impressed with the follow-up care I’ve received at my post-op appointments. He has truly put effort and genuine care into making the best plan for my recovery and success.

I've seen him multiple times for various joint issues. Each and every time he's taken his time to explain everything, answer any questions I have, and come up with a conservative treatment plan. I've never felt rushed or felt like he brushed aside any of my questions or concerns. He's very personable, GREAT bedside manner, but most importantly, he knows his stuff inside and out. I feel very confident if I do ever need surgery, he's the one to do it, and will do a good job.

It felt amazing to learn that Dr. Kocaj had reviewed my MRI CD, MRI report, and my XRAY prior to entering the examination room. As he asked me questions about my shoulder, I felt confident that I had finally found a doctor who was going to be able to treat me with success. We discussed my symptoms. He designed a short -term and a long - term treatment goal. He was extremely gentle while injecting the steroid shot, and considerate of my comfortability. I recommend Dr. Kocaj with 5 STARS!!!

Dr Kocaj was very personable and approachable with a 'can do' attitude that helped me see things from a 'half full' perspective. Enjoyed his level of energy and his willingness to care for the complete patient = me! Outcomes/Results after procedure were very positive
