He did try to rush or convince me surgery was my only option. We worked together as a team approach to my problem. Didn't rush appt when running behind always apologised. Good bedside manner.

I’m not a fan of bodily injuries but I am a Fan of Dr.Markowski... I’m a very active human being, marathon runner, golfer, weight lifter, my profession “Firefighter.” I’ve had 5 knee surgeries and each time I was taken care of by Dr. Markowski. Recently retired and moved 400 miles away to Tampa. I fell off a swimming pool ladder “handle broke” and injured my right shoulder. It was a severe injury. Worse pain ever! I never hesitated who was going to be my doctor/surgeon. Despite the distance. The saying goes, if it’s not broken do not fix it it, Well, I am broken both physically and emotionally..and my doctor Dr.Markowski continues to support my healing process both physically and emotionally.. Thank you Sir!

I found Dr. Markowski and staff to be friendly and attentive. Facilities were bright and clean. My concern, probable knee replacement, was addressed and evaluated carefully and treatment recommended. My questions were answered and made sure that I understood. Surgery was successful and two months later I nearly have full use and better than before treatment.

I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Markowski three months ago and can highly recommend him. The P.A.s, nurses and office staff at Bluewater Orthopedics are all just great.

I had both hips replaced, 9mos. apart, and he did both of them. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and concerns. He is very matter of fact, doesn't sugar-coat anything, but I appreciate his straight-forwardness. His exray tech, Jocie (spelling?) is the best one ever-- somehow no pain during "contortions"! P.A. Erin also is very caring. The office staff in the Destin office is super top-notch and congenial
