Patient Comments (2)
in Sparland, Il |
I was under the care of a surgeon at Great Plains in Peoria and I drove to Galesburg to Dr. Potaczek for a second opinion as to surgery. I was so impressed with Dr. Potaczek, I will transfer my records and care to him. He is plain spoken and very knowledgeable. He explained options to surgery so it could be put off. He took his time to insure I understood what he was telling me about my shoulder. Even though Galesburg is over an hours drive for me, it is worth it to get his care.
in Peoria, Illinois |
I was taking prescription pain medication for severe osteoarthritis of my hip for five years prior to replacement surgery by Dr. Potacek. Within six weeks of surgery, I was riding my bicycle 20-30 miles per week, within 12 weeks, I was lifting weights 3-4 times per week and for the first time in years, was able to fully enjoy the full benefit of a health club membership. I give Dr. Potacek TWO THUMBS UP!
