I am sorry, but I wouldn't recommend Dr Mixa to anyone. I had arthroscopic knee surgery 2 week post doing good.then after that pain swelling.had to go back several times then finally he said I had fluid drained 120 cc of fluid in 1 1/2 weeks still having pain swelling so he says I have chronic regional pain syndrome. Never took a x-ray after surgery. Went for another opinion this Dr did do a x-ray and said I hardly had any cartilage left and would need a total knee replacement.

I had a very painful shoulder - bone spurs. Dr. Mixa did such a great job that I felt better the night after surgery than before surgery. Healed quickly with little to no pain and no difficulties. Two small incision sites - front of shoulder and behind shoulder. I was amazed at how small they were. After one month I looked at the sites and the marks were gone. You would not have known I had surgery. As far as being seen is concerned - staff were wonderful. Sincerest thanks to Dr. Mixa and staff.

Dr. Mixa is a great doctor. He was fast, but really knew his stuff. I am pain free now. The staff is kind and efficient. Ms. Martha is so sweet and a blessing! Anne in X-Ray is very kind and Ariel in check-out is very upbeat, always has a smile on her face, and is so very helpful. I would recommend Dr. Mixa to friends and family!

Failed surgery, long wait times, terrible office ambiance, rude receptionists (they sit behind the counter and have zero interaction except to be bothered when you ask them a question) Dr. Mixa had no idea who I was when I returned for a consult after a failed procedure, talked to my son more than he spoke to me when he wasn't taking to his dictating recorder like we weren't even in the room with him. Di I mention LONG wait times? Plan to spend 2 hours or more.

I first visited Dr. Mixa in 2005 after seeing several other doctors for pain in my left knee.. He did a terrific job explaining my status and my options. I decided to have a full knee replacement and it went perfect. No more knee pain! Dr. Mixa, his PA, Martha and entire team were wonderful....very responsive and caring. In 2011, I fell and tore my right biceps tendon and in 2015, I had my right knee replaced. Dr. Mixa performed both surgeries and I could not be happier. Dr. Mixa is great!

I am giving him 0 stars only for the fact he ruined my hand i have no feeling in my hand what so ever. I go back to him to try and fix it and he refused service to me and told me i have to go see someone else. The receptionists are very very rude they don't care how long you have been waiting or what questions you have they will still speak to you with attitude. When you schedule an appointment make sure you whole day is clear as you will be there waiting to be seen for hours and hours..

I saw Dr. Mixa for ongoing carpal tunnel pain/numbness. He offered me various treatments before surgery (i.e. cortisone shots) but was up-front with me when I asked if any of them were long-term solutions besides surgery. Dr. Mixa's bedside manner can be abrupt and a little condescending--normal for a surgeon. He does not remember personal details (other than medical) from one meeting to the next, but he is a great surgeon who knows his trade. Wait times can be overly long; bring a book!

I have seen Dr Mixa for a tibial fx and for a left knee replacement in 2000.Then I had a very favorable opinion of him. I saw him today for my right knee due to increasing pain and decreased mobility. I am an experienced RN? Today I found Mixa to be in a hurry with rote explanations of what I already knew was going on with my knee and what the next course of action. He was condescending, placating & spoke more to my male partner than to me. I will not go back again & don't recommend him!
