Dr. Markowski treated me for knee pain for several years before I decided to have total knee replacement surgery. He was always their to give me the information and help I needed to make my decisions. I am overweight and lost about 30 lbs. before I decided to get surgery. I worked with a personal trainer before the surgery which made my recovery much easier. After left knee replacement I had no problems and chose to have the right knee replaced as soon as possible. The recovery went very well with both knees and now I am pain free. Following Dr. Markowski’s treatment plan I am able to walk and climb stairs without pain. He’s one of the best I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr Markiwski he is a dr with integrity. I had my two shoulders botched by a butcher. That dr remove all my soft tissue so I can come back for shoulder replacement. Dr Markiwski he went and. Fixed but will be eminent I. A near future a mechanical joint. I’m a busy person the only time I sit is when I eat. Our living room the dogs use the couches. Lol no this is the best sr you can get for your troubles he has fixed my right shoulder he has done mri and found a bruised rotator cuff. He isn’t a dr that will damage your health ever. Also he has a very nice bed aide manner and is a sweet human. Most de are hi on their horse not him Humble man. He supposed to do my operation on my left but his mom passed away that day they called me if I wanted latter. I said no way my pain don’t equal what he is going through, had to await the surgery center was very comfy and Proffesional. I suffer form PTSD and anesthesia is bad they made it differently mixes just for me and didn’t have trouble Recommen

Dr. Markowski took great care of my knee. He assessed the problem and treated it right away. A little fluid out, a little cortisone in, some good advice, and I am much better.

Everything about my visit was handled in a friendly, highly professional manner, from making my appointment staff, xrays and treatment. I felt confident I was getting the best possible care. Dr. Markowski explained my issue, options, and recommendations for me to get back to being active. I hope I won’t need to see them again, but if I do I won’t hesitate to call.

Dr Markiwski. Like my savior he had done so much for me. I’m getting another mri. I know if I knew of him before I had my shoulders repair I probably I would never be in this predicament I’m in now. He is gentle knowledgeable and has experience. He isn’t in a hurry and goes by the numbers. If some thing didn’t work prices to the next step. Now for me MRI this is my six MRI since I started this difficult step. Without my arms I be a sad life for me. Dr William is an amazing Orthopedic dr. So glad he is young so Will be like for my life span Kind of Dr. he fixed my left arm I suffer for 3 years 3 years. That he said he can help me with. Honest dr I Like because I can see that they have passion isn’t the $ that matters and that is a good Dr.

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!
