I had a laparoscopic hernia surgery 5 years ago performed at Beth Israel hospital. After that surgery I was barely able to walk for 2 moths. And the the hernias recurred 2 years later. I need another surgery, but I was afraid that the second surgery would as ineffective as the first. Several different doctors recommended Dr. Dronsky to me. But then I saw Dr. Dronsky, who immediately diagnosed all the problems and even found an additional hernia. He was frank and open with me when he said that the surgery will be difficult since the volume of work done this time will be much larger. He then explained the upcoming surgery to me in a simple language that was easy to understand. The surgery was successful. I had no pain and I started walking normally 2 days later and a month after surgery I have to remind myself the I had it. I am really grateful to Dr. Dronsky whose work exceeded all of my expectations.

I had bilateral surgery repaired in Mar 2021. This is long overdue thank-you to Dr. Dronsky, but better late than never! It was my New Year resolution to write this review, and I am happily doing that on the first day of 2022! On a positive side, my procrastination conveniently lent itself to a comprehensive verification of the outcome. I was somewhat skeptical when Dr. Dronsky told me after the surgery: In couple months, return to your normal activities, no restrictions. He was absolutely right!! In fact, I fully recovered in 6 weeks. Today, my hernia chapter is over and behind, I barely remember how bad it was.. But I do remember Dr. Dronsky! As well as another Dr in the recovery room (sorry his name escaped my memory now), who told me: If I ever need a surgery, I will ask Dr. Dronsky! On my "why", he said: Because I saw him at work, and saw many of his patients after that! Thank you Dr. Dronsky!! Keep doing the great work for all of us! Best, Alex

Dr Dronsky is a brilliant surgeon. I had a robotic bi-lateral chronic incarcerated hernia surgery. Whatever the Dr stated would happen pre and post-op happened. Like it was a written script for a movie and flawless.

Dr Dronsky operated on me a year ago for inguinal hernias. That went very well. Last month I needed an operation for an abdominal hernia. Again, Dr Dronsky did a great job. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Dr. Dronsky is an exceptional surgeon. He thoroughly detailed any questions I had preoperatively. I was soon able to resume my regular activities after my hernia procedure. I must also add that his staff are kind and helpful. Steven S. 10/14/20

Looking for a hernia Dr? Look no further! Dr.Dronsky and his team were very professional. He did my hernia surgery on 10/23/2019 I was able to start working after three weeks doing plumbing work. Recovery was very quick thanks to his talent and post op instructions. Also let’s not forget about the office staff, they’re very polite, fast and prompt. Im very fit and in good health and I was afraid to have surgery but I’m glad I did. If you have a hernia go visit Dr.Dronsky you’ll be glad you did.

I don’t do reviews. But this was my first “real” surgery. I was terrified and all that comes with it. Dr. Dronsky was very professional and definitely took the time to make feel more at rest. He was also the first recommended by my GP of more than 20 years.

Dr. Dronsky was a very knowledgeable and highly talented surgeon. He completed the procedure in a timely fashion and his team of assistants made sure that I was treated with the utmost attention in the recovery room. I had three hernias repaired during one procedure and he was able to completely alleviate my pain in those three regions due to his profound surgical skills. It has been a month since the surgery was done and I feel no pain at all. I will without a doubt recommend this Surgeon.

Dr. Dronsky was my surgeon for a recent appendectomy. Having gone to the hospital on a Saturday and having absolutely no choice in which surgeon would be removing my appendix, I couldn't have been luckier than to have Dr. Dronsky. He was thoughtful, truthful, and extremely caring from the first moment I met him in the hospital to the several follow-ups in the weeks after my surgery. The whole office staff feeds off the positive energy as well. Thank you all!
