Dr. Tradonsky did a total knee replacement on my right knee. That was about 7 or 8 years ago, I am a 73 year old man and I have had constant pain with the knee and the ligaments and tendons behind my knee. I had several conversations with Dr Trodonsky and his attitude was one of arrogance and apathy. I believe he did a very poor job on my knee and it will probably will mean pain for the rest of my life.

I've never had a doctor before tell me I'm not in pain . This is why it's so bad the mri showed a root menicus tear and the report states it as well. This doctor wouldn't even let me speak and even raised his voice . I've never experienced a uncomfortable feeling like I Did today . Some doctors are meant to be doctors some treat it like a job and patients equal numbers to them. If I could use my own doctor and not been stuck with a 2.5 -3 rating doctor who patients reviews are dead on point.

I had a rotator calf injury and I was sent to Dr. S. Tradonsky by Work Comp people. I did not choose him. (I work as RN for 40 years and know many doctors). My experience with Dr. Tradonsky was excellent. He took care of my injury, he performed my surgery, which was very sucessful and he took me through the physical therapy process. I would recomend him to my best friends or family and I am already doing so. I think he is very knowledgable doctor and very experienced surgeon.

Dr Tradonsky was very rude and abrupt during the visit. When he examined my hip (injury location) he yanked my skirt up to my waist without telling me what he was going to do! A professional would have informed me of what was needed (adjusting clothing) or asked me to do it myself. He had the door to the exam room WIDE open with 3 people that walked down the hall during the time I was on the exam table with my undergarments on full display. He made NO attempt to protect my modesty or PRIVACY!
