in Astoria, NY |
After insisting I get an unessicary MRI in the foot that didn't have a problem, he told me what I already knew about my "bad" foot and recommended surgery. Fine. So I start asking questions on the surgery itself, recovery time etc... After maybe 4 questions he ROLLED HIS EYES, gave an irritated huff, and continued on. Then he continued to use a degrading and insulting tone IN FRONT OF HIS INTERN. I left livid, appalled, disrespected AND without any advice on treating my condition.

In the past year, Dr. Sheskier has performed 3 surgeries on me for ankle reconstruction, toe deformities and a bunion. I couldn't be more pleased. He is communicative, competent (extremely) and thorough. The office staff and medical staff are responsive, professional and patient. Occasionally there's a slight wait in being seen but, frankly, that's to be expected in a surgeon's office. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Sheskier.

I was impressed immediately upon meeting Dr. Sheskier. I am a critical care nurse with 39 years of experience and the level of compassion that he showed was outstanding. He helped me through a difficult time that started with pain and tears and ended up with comfort, increase in quality of life and smiles. Thank you so much.

I've been a patient of Dr. Sheskier since 2004 and love the guy, he is truly a kind, caring physcian. He has a great bedside manner, and greets you with a smile every visit and if your lucky a joke. He tries very hard to do whatever he can to eliminate your pain and suffering. He is honest and straightforward with his treatments plans and surgical procedures and what they will fix or won't fix. You can not ask for or find a better doctor anywhere. He is truly the best!

in New Milford, CT |
Excellent surgeon with a caring bedside manner. . I recently had Posterior Tibial tendon transfer and calcaneal osteotomy and am thrilled with my result. . I am now 4 months post-op and the results are excellent. I am walking unaided, no cane, no limp and my surgical ankle feels better than my non operated foot. My friends are amazed at my progress and so am I. Dr. Sheskier and his staff have a very patient oriented approach...even to suggesting vitamins to help with healing and use of an Ice Ma

I recently had surgery with Dr. Sheskier to treat hallux rigidus of the big toe. Dr. Sheskier is a very skilled surgeon and I am very pleased with the care I received. At our first meeting Dr. Sheskier took the time to explain everything very clearly to me.I felt very comfortable with him and am very happy with the outcome. In addition, all of his office staff are very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Sheskier.
Did unnecessary ankle surgery. Used 6 month old MRI and when I went into surgery tendon had already healed on its own. I have been in pain ever since he performed the surgery. Never again.

Doctor Sheskier is the best doctor you can hope for with years of experience and love to his patients. He is thinking out of box and looking for the best solution. Doctor Sheskier is working with you, your family doctor and therapists as a team. I had a surgery 6 weeks ago and results are amazing. Now he is guiding and coordinating my recovery. I recommend this doctor as the best specialist.
